SLIGHTLY DANGEROUS by Mary Balogh because it took the entire 6-book series to finally get to his story and it was absolutely awesome. And his name's Wulfric, which I love!
MY ONE AND ONLY by Kristan Higgins. Funny, funny, sweet & funny. I'm talking ugly laughing here; face-scrunched-tears-flowing-and-nose-running kind of laugh. And then I snickered for days afterward just thinking about it. When Harper called Nick 'Florence'. . .seriously. . .still makes me laugh.
MONTANA SKY by Nora Roberts for three reasons. It's an autographed copy, I love how she brings three different stories together, and it has my all-time favourite opening line: 'Being dead didn't make Jack Mercy less of a son of a bitch.' -- I mean, come on, brilliant, right?
Yes and no. The town of Newport Ridge is a fictionalized town based on a small town in southwestern British Columbia. I used a similar layout of the town and included some of its actual landmarks and events, but anyone who's familiar with the area will recognize the discrepancies right away. Artistic license is a beautiful thing. :o)
I was at my very first writer's conference in Reno and had volunteered to hand out bags to the attendees. So there I was, minding my own business, checking names off the list when suddenly Julie Garwood walked up. In all honesty, it's possible that I blacked out because the only thing I remember is telling her I loved her.
To this day, I'm still shocked she didn't get a restraining order.
Kit's one of those characters who lurks in the back corner of my mind, poking me every once in a while to remind me she still has things to say (what a shock!), so yes, I do plan to write her story, too.
