Back when I was in high school and college I read like a fiend. Sometimes I would read all night, and still get to class the next day. Anyone else do that? Please don’t let me be the only one to confess that! At that time there wasn’t a really a “paranormal romance” genre, but historical romances were huge, and I loved them. One of the authors (or authors) that I adored above all others was Laura London. I said “authors” because Laura London is actually the husband and wife writing team of Tom and Sharon Curtis. They wrote back in the late 70s through the 90s, and then they sort of disappeared. They wrote such wonderful characters that I feel like I actually knew them. And not just the hero and heroine. Their secondary characters were marvelous too. Many of their characters are still fresh in my mind, decades later. When I grow up I want to write characters like they did.
Or do? Tom and Sharon Curtis are back! Their backlist is being re-released. And best all all *insert wild happy dance* they are writing again! If you haven’t had a chance to read any of their work, I suggest you start with the Windflower. I have enjoyed every book they ever wrote (even their novella, The Natural Child in the When You Wish anthology is outstanding), but The Windflower is arguably their best book. It jsut came out today. Why not take a look and see if you might like it. Then come back and tell me what you thought of Cat. And Cook. And Raven. In fact, all of it!
