Postscripts, random notes, and news from my little writer world.
That is definitely surprising. I would have put THE DEVIL'S DELILAH much higher--it was my gateway book to your work. I also would have moved DON'T TEMPT ME higher too.
Jenny Rae, it's going to be very interesting, learning how others react. Meanwhile, I was surprised that Don't Tempt Me got up as high as it did, considering it's been out for less than a month.
Ah. Those top four speak to me. I read them frequently, recommend them constantly, and would never part with my own dog-eared copies. I was introduced to your books with Lord of Scoundrels, but I have a particular soft spot for The Last Hellion. I anxiously await each book you write. No one turns a phrase quite like you.
Interesting point about The Devil's Delilah. That was the book where I started to feel I'd got the hang of this Regency romance thing.
My top 5 among your books are LoS, Lord Perfect, Knaves Wager, Last Hellion and Miss Wonderful. The others can be any ranking but these first 5 are the absolute for me. I was disappointed to see Knaves Wager in the last because I think this is one of your best book. I am consoling myself with the fact that this is an OOP book and LC readers, especially the newer ones would not have read it. I am currently rereading it and my admiration for this book just keeps geting higher. The writing, dialogue, characters, even the secondary ones are just marvelous. This is a perfect traditional regency book, IMO, just as The Mad Earl’s Bride is the perfect novella. I know that you are an American but if I didn’t, I would have thought that KW was written by an English writer. But this applies to most of your books anyway.How would you rank you books? I know that they are all your “babies”, but we do have favourites. Which are yours?
AnneH, I can't rank my books. I'm not looking at them as a reader, but as the writer, and mostly I'm judging in terms of craftsmanship. None of them is perfect to me, but in each of them there are things I thought I did especially well or took great pleasure in doing. So they're not equal, but there's no No. 1 for me.
Loretta, I think one of the reasons I adored DON'T TEMPT ME so much is that it's really well-crafted. It has the feel of a traditional Regency, but yet it's wildly romantic and has sex scenes that work beautifully.You also close each scene with anticipation, realization, or a character turn... (Don't mind me, I just came back from a six week writing workshop, and you've endeared yourself to me with your plotting skills.=)
