One of my Twitter peeps came up with this topic which I thought was grand – romancing the hero or heroine, what are some of your favorite examples? In Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series, one of her heroes gave his heroine shoes . . .to say he was sorry *sigh* Sherry Thomas’s, NOT QUITE A HUSBAND, the hero gave the heroine a microscope because he knew her love for astronomy *romantic* ANY MAN OF MINE our hero washed dishes for his heroine – WOW! NAKED IN DEATH by JD Robb, Roarke gave Eve real coffee (big in the future) Other books, hero gave heroine a harp; or in paranormal a knife so the heroine could defend herself, and so on. [...]
I really tried to avoid this topic but it is one that I felt we should address – every Christmas there seems to be one or two gifts that you really don’t want, need or already have . . . did that happen to you this year? It did for me — I actually told my husband I wanted an Ipod so I’d have an updated version — not that I needed it – urgh, so once I opened the gift & saw the delightful little gizmo I felt like I shouldn’t keep it as I really didn’t need it . . . . so, I’ll return it or maybe re-gift it – I’ve not decided just yet . .

Seven Wonders of the Romance Bandits Lair by Anna Campbell We’re back, Sue! What a great day we had yesterday! Thanks again for inviting the Romance Bandits to invade Romance @ Random. As promised, no poetry today. I’m Anna Campbell (www.annacampbell.info), qualified Bandit wrangler. I’m delighted to introduce seven more Romance Bandits who are giving us a glimpse of their Holiday plans. Just in case you missed out on yesterday’s post, the Romance Bandits emerged from the finalists in the 2006 Golden Heart Award. With 19 of us (and a rather wicked Golden Rooster who is inclined to take over proceedings unless we keep an eye on him), there’s always something happening in the Bandit lair. You can find us [...]
