Cookies and Romance!Amelia Grey
I’m a sucker for a romance book. Anytime, anywhere, anyplace. Some people say it is formula, cookie-cutter writing. I always say so who doesn’t like cookies! I don’t care if all of them are made from the same basic recipe, and if they all look alike. A real cookie aficionado not only enjoys but also appreciates the differences in cookies the same way a romance reader enjoys and appreciates that romance books have certain things in common, but they all have a sprinkle of hidden ingredients that makes every book different and special.
My favorite part of the cookie is the first, mouth-watering bite that melts on the tongue and awakens the taste buds. And my favorite part of a romance is where the hero and heroine first meet. I love it when they size each other up with breathless excitement. And, to me the best kind of first meeting is confrontational.
I want to see sparks of mistrust and hot pulsating desire flying between the hero and heroine.In A DUKE TO DIE FOR the first book of my new Regency trilogy The Rogues’ Dynasty, the undisciplined and carefree duke is more than a bit surprised to learn he has become the guardian of a seductive young lady who sends heat like he hasn’t felt in years rushing through his loins.
The one thing the lovely and sensible heroine must have in her life is order, and even though her heart trips at the sight of the roguish duke, she knows he is the last person to be responsible for anyone’s welfare so the sparks fly.A touch of cinnamon will spice up a cookie the same way a dash of spunk will spice a heroine. Ingredients are what make cookies and books different and delicious!
