In this week’s Friday Dish I am dishing up romance as part of the Fall Into Romance Blog Hop (the hop runs September 13th – 21st).
Romance is so diverse as a genre. You can find suspense, science fiction, contemporary and more. From sweet to steamy to erotic and beyond, it can all fall under the umbrella of Romance. Perhaps that is why as a genre romance can resonate with so many people. To get lost in the love of it all is sometimes a nice escape from the realities of work and life.
Today I’m talking about Leyenda Holt’s Seduction Unlimited. This is a collection of short story erotic romance type work. I think I liked the first story most because it had more of a romance type feel with the slightly older, but not old, man interested in a thirty-something aged woman. He liked her at first meeting, but he didn’t make the move. I like that his family was supportive and actually played a part in trying to get the two of them together. Basically there was no drama but that of which they made for themselves. But once he was finally ready to make a move, Yoshia pulled out all his techniques to win Kassie’s heart and body.
I like stories where characters can fall in love and have a happy ending so even with a short story, that I know there is more life to explore with the characters, I can still very much enjoy the short escape.
Another author that I found last year and have enjoyed despite my lack of interest in historical romance stories is Claudy Conn. She has such a wide range of books including some paranormal historical. Somehow she always manages to write these dashing good men that make me like them even more. My most recent read from her was Lady Bess .
I like that her leading ladies have spunk and aren’t doormats per se and for me that spirited leading lady who can take care of herself, but isn’t afraid to ask for help when its needed is a draw. Claudy Conn is really the only author who writes in historical settings that I read. Maybe one day I will find another one like her and read more in the genre.
