Why I Stick to the Sweet Side by Maggie McGinnis
Thanks so much for hosting me today! I’m so excited to celebrate the release of Once Upon a Cowboy with you!
When I first started writing romance, I was pretty secretive about it. After all, I had children … and a mother … and a mother-in-LAW, for God’s sake. What if I was lucky enough to get published? They might—gasp—read my books. And then they’d look at me differently, right? Seriously, we’re talking native New Englanders here. We did not talk of such things as romance in my house, even though clearly, something had happened there at least three times, since I had two brothers.
When I wrote my first sex scene, I immediately chopped it out of the manuscript and saved it in a new file that I named “grocery list.” I mean, what if I keeled over from some mystery illness and my mother ended up in charge of sorting out the files on my laptop? If she came across that scene, the poor woman would be rinsing her eyes for weeks!
Weeks later, I tried again. Chopped it again. Filed it again.Read more

I waited a long time on library hold for The Sheikh’s Princess Bride. After reading The Sultan’s Harem Bride, I was interested to see what happened to Asim’s sister, Samira. I was ultimately disappointed, though, because the book featured one of my least favorite tropes – the miracle baby. There wasn’t one hint in the synopsis about it, or I probably wouldn’t have checked it out from the library. This trope almost never works for me, so it was no surprise that it didn’t work here, either.Read more

This is another .99 Harlequin manga that I nabbed from Amazon. An Uncommon Abigail would have received a higher grade if it had been the complete story, but there are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up. I am assuming those will be tied up in The Prodigal Bride. When I purchased this, I did not realize that it is not complete in one volume, and there is no mention of that fact in the manga itself. I had to use Google-fu and Amazon to track down the next volume. (The Fortune Hunter is the first volume – it took me even longer to figure that out! I only managed that because I finally located the original book the manga is adapted from.)Read more
