Hi Emery, thanks for being here at Reading Romances! As this is a blog focused on romance books, I have to ask you: who are your romance “goddesses”?

I don’t read much romance outside the domain of historicals but within that subgenre I woudl have to list several: Georgette Heyer (Ms. Heyer is the prima goddess!) Lisa Kleypas, Pamela Clare, Laura Kinsale, Loretta Chase, Janna Bourne, Judith  James , Elizabeth Hoyt just to name a few off the top of my head. What a list! I’m sure I’ve overlooked many but tried to think of my DIK list in naming them.  Oh, two new favorites are Grace Burrowes and Lucinda Brant for her Georgian era RH novels.

Do you have a top 5 for your favorite heroes?

Or the first 5 you can think of I forgot to mantion Diana Gabladon as one of my “goddesses”. Her character Jamie Frazer is a fantabulous hero although I don’t care much for his soul mate Claire (Most times I want to shake her until her teeth rattle!  Next is Loretta Chase’ hero Sebastian from Lord of Scoundrels and Lord Damerel from Georgette Heyers’ Venetia. I also LOVED  Iain MacKinnon from Palmela Clare’s SURRENDER and most of all Philip Drake from FORTUNE’S SON. I know it’s a shameless plug to mention my own character but if I wasn’t in love with him, I never would have given him his own book after THE HIGHEST STAKES!
