Dear Author Recommends for April

We have a short list of selections for April (hey, we’re being kind to your pocket book. You have to save up for Kiss of Snow next month).

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Oooh, I love it when I find out about a new to me author! Especially someone who is somewhat lesser known. Tracy Grant looks like someone whose works I think I’d love. I am a huge fan of Tasha Alexander, Deanna Raybourne, & CS Harris and her stuff looks like it fits right in with those. Vienna Waltz looks very interesting and her back list looks just as good as well.

    Tracy (Teresa) Grant’s books are AWESOME!!! If you like CS Harris, you’ll also like Tracy’s books. I’ve loved ’em for years and just discovered Harris a few weeks ago.

    BTW: Vienna Waltz is a continuation of her Charles and Melanie series (Secrets of a Lady/Daughter of the Game, Beneath a Silent Moon, and the newly self-published The Maske of Night) she just changed the names of the characters for the “new ” series and publisher.

    Vienna Waltz is terrific. I began it to see if I wanted to recommend it, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished despite all the other work that was staring at me.

    It’s set earlier than the previous Charles/Melanie books. I have the others in my TBR, and I don’t feel that I missed anything (although I’m sure my reading would have been enriched by knowing the later stories).

    And, of course, they’re not called Charles and Melanie but Malcolm and Suzanne. Publishers can be so weird sometimes.

    Seeing Vienna Waltz as Dear Author recommended read for April was the loveliest present to come home to. So glad you enjoyed it!

    All the Elizabeth Vaughan books I’ve read, and I think I own all, have been very good fantasy romances.
    As good as Linnea Sinclair is for sf romance – so I mean a seamless blend of fantasy and romance.
    Recommended! I’m so glad they’re re-releasing her electronically.

    ETA: Can I just say BLESS YOU for bringing back edit!
