What are you reading...Pamela Stone? (with giveaway)
When I choose a book to read, strong characters are my thing. I want to fall in love with the hero and be able to relate to the heroine’s issues. I want to fall in love with the hero through the heroine’s eyes as the story unfolds. Great characters are more important to me even than the plot.
At the top of my ‘To Be Read’ pile was Primal Calling by Jillian Burns. Hot tortured hero. Alaska bush pilot. Sizzling chemistry and one of the sexiest covers I’ve run across. Hmm, maybe that’s why I put it at the TOP of the stack. Great read, but it’s also nice just to stare at the cover.
I next treated myself to Sea Swept by Nora Roberts. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read this book through the years, but it is one of those stories that inspires me to be a better writer and create real life characters. Characters that jump off the page. The entire Chesapeake trilogy is great, but Sea Swept never fails to sweep me away. Cameron Quinn – be still my heart.
At a recent Library event, I was lucky enough to pick up a copy of Lorraine Heath’s latest book, Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman. I’m just starting the book, but if it’s anything like her others, it will be a delightful read. Lorraine Heath has never failed to pull me in with her wonderful characters.
I also took time to read and proof my March release, Second Chance Dad. Funny that even after you write a book, by the time it makes its way through the process and becomes an actual book, reading it is almost like a visit with old friends.
Let us know what you’re reading and what you look for in a book. Do you look for plot? Cover? Characters? Earn a chance to win a copy of my March release, Second Chance Dad, leave a comment. Void where prohited.
