Heroes in Romance



When I first started in this business of writing romances a very dear friend and successful author recommended a book that she promised would give me that "Ah, ha!" moment about writing romances. And the book delivered.

Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women--Romance Writers on the Appeal of Romance, edited by Jayne Ann Krentz is a compilation of wisdom and insights into writing the romance novel by some of the genre's most beloved and successful authors.

My copy of this book is now dogeared and highlighted on almost every page. I flip through it occasionally to remind myself of the helpful tips gleaned from the book's pages.


My current June release is a Love Inspired Suspense titled HER LAST CHANCE which has a strong, wounded hero who must ultimately decide where his faith and his heart lie. I really enjoyed bringing Roman Black to life and hope you will enjoy him as well.

  1. Thanks for sharing Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women. Sounds interesting! Your book cover looks so creepy and cool--I love it! Is it set in the bayou or near a beach? The bird statue had me wondering...

  5. Jill, you'll have to read the book to find out.LOL. I love the statue, the art department put it together just as I described it in the book. They do such an awesome job.
    Edna, I hope you get a chance to read Her Last Chance. It will keep you guessing.
    Carmen, I love historicals too. That's what I set out to write when I first started.
    Hannah, definitely a first time for everything. Please try a Love Inspired Suspense sometime. If you love the Love Inspired line you won't be disappointed.
    Blessings to you all!
