ARC Review of The Prince Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins

 I have been reading Karen Hawkins for years and I have never been disappointed with any of her stories.  She writes beautiful love stories with handome Alpha males (my favorite type of hero) and smart, strong heriones that that make you wish for the book to never end.  This story is a variation on the Cinderella theme complete with a handsome Prince and a sweet innocent with a step mother and step sisters.  I do not want to give away too much of the story but Karen weaves a charming tale of two people from two different worlds discovering that their lives were not nearly as complete as they thought they were.  One chance meeting, one lost slipper and both their worlds are turned upside down. If you have never read a Karen Hawkins book you are missing out on one the best voices in Historical Romance today.  I recommend...

Writing The BIG Misunderstanding – Romance Tropes

We, romance writers and readers, love our tropes. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trope_(literature) ), the word trope has “come to be used for describing commonly recurring literary and rhetorical devices, motifs or clichés in creative works.” One of our favorite tropes is The BIG Misunderstanding. The heroine (99 percent of the time, it is the heroine) sees or hears something, interprets this something the ‘wrong’ way, and this interpretation drives a wedge between her and her love interest, causing big problems for them. The reader can get frustrated with The BIG Misunderstanding because she knows if the hero and the heroine simply had a conversation, the misunderstanding would go away. Their lives would be honky dory again. Everything would be sunshine and rainbows. She also knows if hero and heroine can’t have a simple conversation, their relationship is likely doomed anyway. Barring unusual circumstances, people in healthy, lasting relationships talk. That’s...

Mention In The Chicago Tribune

I was mentioned in the Chicago Tribune! “When Cynthia Sax, of Toronto, and her husband got married, they had little money for entertainment. “So we entered every free contest we saw in the newspaper, on the radio, on the Internet,” the romance author said. “We won at least one set of tickets a week to ballets, festivals, experimental theater, operas, movie premieres, TV show tapings.” Bonus: You see events you would not see otherwise.” Read the full article here http://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/sc-cons-0911-solutions-20140911-story.html *** Subscribe To My Release Day Newsletter: http://tasteofcyn.com/2014/05/28/newsletter/ Bee Carter’s carefully constructed world is tumbling down around her designer knockoff heels.

Bachelors of San Gabriel (2, 3, 4, 4.5 and 5)

With just 11 days to spare until her newest release, I finished all the books in Jennifer Bernard's Bachelor Fireman of San Gabriel series. Before I dive into the 5 stories I gorged myself in, let me just say that Jennifer is an incredibly talented author. With each brave fire fighter, I fell more in love. The dedication they each had to their jobs, the journey to their HEA and the background stories were unique and intriguing. As a whole, this series is a strong 4.5 - and I cannot wait for #6. Hot For Fireman (#2) Add to your TBR shelf on Goodreads Ryan Blake got suspended from the San Gabriel firefighters a year and a half ago for a daredevil act that nearly killed someone. Now he’s back in San Gabriel, fighting to return to the force. He takes a job at a local dive, the Hair of...
