Heather Boyd: Once Isn't Enough

I love books. I love reading. I love collecting too. I have a keeper shelf of print books both old and new that I love to re-read each year. And with Christmas just around the corner, less than a week away, I’m planning a week of getting lost in great stories. I haven’t always had time to read books as soon as I buy them this year due to my own book release commitments, but I intend to get stuck in before the TBR list gets completely of hand.

What makes a book worth a second read for an author? When I look over my list, it’s all about the humor, the intensity of the romance, and that warm but disappointed feeling I have when I read The End. Every book is different, some sexier than others. But if I want more they’re on the keeper shelf.

So what’s new I haven’t got to yet? So very many unfortunately: Natasha Blackthorne, Mistletoe, Marriage, and Mayhem Boxed Set and others.

And what books will I revisit this holiday’s just for the sheer joy of reading about old friends?

Susanne Enoch – This book always makes me smile. Valentine Corbett falling in love is so adorable.
Barbara Monajem – The Christmas Knot (regency Christmas). Perhaps the most fascinating Christmas story I’ve ever read.
Jane Austen – Persuasion. Because I have captain’s on my mind lately.
Alice Clayton – Wallbanger (Contemporary Romance) Laugh out loud dating mayhem with a neighbor.

Have you read any of these? And if you need an extra book for your TBR pile see below for my latest release.

Richard Hill, the Earl of Windermere, might desperately require a wife and heir, but thoughts of duty fly from his mind when he rescues Esme, Lady Heathcote, from the embarrassment of a failed affair. They usually never agree about anything. He’s never even kissed the vexing widow. But when the opportunity arises to whisk her away for a no-strings-attached rendezvous, Richard can’t imagine a better way to spend a moonlit evening.

Esme has never lacked for admirers, but having Lord Windermere’s company goes a long way to ease the pain of losing her suddenly betrothed lover. And when Windermere suggests an affair, Esme is intrigued by the blazing-hot connection even while knowing their relationship has no future beyond his house party.

But as with any temptation, it’s a bargain they’ll soon regret.

Bestselling historical author Heather Boyd believes every character she creates deserves their own happily-ever-after, no matter how much trouble she puts them through. With that goal in mind, she writes steamy regency romance stories that skirt the boundaries of propriety to keep readers enthralled until the wee hours of the morning. Heather has published over twenty novels and shorter works. Catch her latest news She lives north of Sydney, Australia, and does her best to wrangle her testosterone-fuelled family (including cat Morpheus) into submission.
