"It's easier to find a virgin in an Ellora's Cave download than a Jewish hero in romance."
That's how I was gonna start this week's feature review of Nita Abrams' "The Spy's Reward" at Romance: B(u)y the Book. But the remarkably romantic and engaging novel deserved better than a questionably-witty cheap shot at homogeneity in Regencies. Plus, I really dig Ellora's Cave. And Regencies.
So hop over to Romance: B(u)y the Book, please, and read all about Nita Abrams, "The Spy's Reward," and Elinor Lipman's "Isabel's Bed," one of my fave re-reads.
What have you said or written that you thought was funny but later wished you'd kept to yourself?
Did you ever find out you had nothing to worry about? That it was funny and you were just being paranoid?
And Part II of Nathan Kamp's interview posts tomorrow, Bellas.
Encore! My mum just wrote to tell me she now loves Nathan Kamp, because "He's got that beautiful head on straight, and there's no doubt in mind about his (and his wife's) heart.....and he cooks, yet." Praise, indeed, from an Italian mother. He's Anglo-Latino, but I'm thinking that's close enough to being Italian to claim him as one of ours...
Encore due! CosmoChick Michele Hauf is here Wednesday, Bellas. Her newest, "Rhiana," is out now. Fantasy, fey, and the trademark Michele Hauf style.
Encore tre! Our boy in the Romantic Times "Mr Romance" contest, Travis Greiman, is here Thursday. He'll tell us about what's been doing in his prep for next Saturday's contest.
