A Feast of Gratitude

By Leah Hultenschmidt, Senior Editor

A little shout-out of gratitude to my romance folks who makes doing a job I love even more awesome:

Macy Beckett – I fall into your books and it’s a like a big welcome home (and I’m not even from Texas!). Can’t wait for more from Sultry Springs!

Isabel Cooper – The most amazing hook ever: Terminator meets My Fair Lady. And next up, Victorian X-Men. You take everything I love and make it wonderfully new and fresh.

Christy English – Talk about sparks a-flyin’! And yet you have the historical detail down to a T. In How to Tame a Willful Wife, Shakespeare never looked so good.

Jayne Fresina – from Aubrey: Your books are the total package: funny and sweet, witty and sexy. I want to go to a ball with Sophie and Ellie, sneak away for a little spiked punch and hit on the hot footmen.

Leigh Greenwood – A gentleman of the highest sense. No wonder everyone adores your heroes!

Shona Husk – Your imagination enthralls me, and the number of people you’ve convinced that goblins can be sexy is awesome. Even though we know romance is going to end with a happily-ever-after, you write some of the best.

Mia Marlowe & Connie Mason – Every book is a treat of wit and rollicking adventure. And I love that they also help me answer questions on Jeopardy!

Bec McMaster – I can’t wait for this whole adventure and to hear readers start to squee when they fall in love with Blade, master of the rookeries, just as much as I did. You are fascinating.

Elisabeth Naughton – The guys are hot, the world is amazing. I could read 8 books in a row and still be reaching for the next one…especially Nick. Besides, some people just know…

Pam Sherwood – I would waltz with your dashing stranger any day. So excited to be with you right from the start on this really exciting journey.

Tes St. Hilaire – A little True Blood, a little Batman and then mix that with angels and pulse-pounding action and romance. What’s not to love?

Amanda Usen – Your words are just as delicious as your food. Thanks for the treats, the fun, and for always being up for more. ;-)

Julie Ann Walker – Talk about explosive high-energy! I’d love to live in your head for a little bit and hang out with Black Knights Inc.
