What Are You Reading Thursday - A Guaranteed Indulgence
A few years back, I read a book I LOVED. I loved it so much I looked up the author and was surprised to find she was Canadian. I mentioned her to my sister, who had a few of her books that miraculously ended up coming my way. Whatever didn't come from my sister got bought up courtesy of amazon. With the exception of a few out of print books, I glommed up every single story that Julianne MacLean had ever written.
I still would like to get those first books.
ANYWAY, I will admit that part of my excitement about moving to Nova Scotia was knowing that Julianne and I were going to be in the same writing chapter. Fangirly? Moi? Absolutely. Imagine how lovely it is to find that one of your most favourite authors in the world is also a super sweet person? And then being able to call that person a friend?
What I love about Julianne's historicals is that she blends humour with atmosphere and then the most stunning sensuality. I adore historical romps and she never fails to impress me in every aspect. I have writer's envy every time I read her books, but I am addicted. For me, her books are everything a historical should be. Smart, sexy, sassy, and an escape into the past when Lords and Ladies and scandal ruled.
So...that's what I've been reading the last week or so. The only bad part? I have to wait until next March for the beginning of her Highlander trilogy coming from St. Martins.
If you haven't read any of Julianne's, in addition to the Pembroke Palace trilogy, her American Heiress series isn't to be missed!
Donna's current release is HER LONE COWBOY, out in the UK right now in a 2-in-1 with Diana Palmer's Tough To Tame.
She also has SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER coming from Samhain Publishing on April 13.
