Dear Avon Books,
Where are my heroes? Whenever I’m reading a book by one of my favorite authors I find I’m falling for the wrong guy — not the hero, but the other man — and what I really want is for him to have his own story.
Like Jake Linley, from Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas…that doctor could sit by my bedside if I ever got sick. And Ned Blydon in Splendid by Julia Quinn…he makes me want to learn to waltz! I never thought living in a drafty castle would be much fun until Simon of Ravenswood in Master of Desire by Kinley MacGregor came along.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that these are my men — when do they get their stories?
A Romance Fan
Three novellas by three of romances best talents. I enjoyed all three of these stories.
Lisa Kleypas wrote Againist The Odds about Regency era doctor Jake Linley who is in love with Lydia Craven who is about to marry Lord Wray. Lydia has resigned herself to this marriage of convenience until she spends time alone with Jake.
Kinley MacGregor (AKA Sherrilyn Kenyon) has a medieval romance about Simon of Ravenswood, Midsummer’s Knight. Kenna, cousin to the king, thinks she is betrothed to Stryker but it is Simon who has been writing words of love to her. Will she be forced by the king to marry Stryker?
Julia Quinn wrote A Tale of Two Sisters about regency era Ned Blydon who is a viscount and one day to inherit the title of Earl of Worth. Ned is betrothed to Lydia who loves Rupert and plans to elope with him. Charlotte, Lydia’s sister manages to get embroiled in the elopement scheme. The resulting story is a testament to the brilliance of Julia Quinn.
In an anthology it is usual that one story, at least, will not be as good as the others. Not so in this book, all three are wonderfully written and it made for a very satisfying read.
