Why I Chose to Write Historical Romance

      It was over 20 years ago when SAMANTHA was first published, the long-awaited, long-demanded spin-off from MY HEART’S DESIRE. The book was all I hoped it would be. I loved it, my readers loved it, and I knew exactly why.
Sammy was the ultimate romantic heroine—a single-minded young woman who was hell-bent on finding the man of her dreams. And, wow, did she do just that. Remington Worth was an enigma, a challenge, and pretty much the antithesis of a knight-in-shining-armor—until he met Samantha. After that, his whole world changed.

     As I reread SAMANTHA and added new author content, I was struck by the fact that something else hasn’t changed, and that’s the heart and soul of why I wrote the book and the genre in which I wrote it.
     I was always a huge historical romance reader. I polished off three or four books a week—during lunch at work, late at night when the world was asleep, and as a new mother rocking a baby stroller. Okay, even before that, when I was a tender-hearted teenager savoring the wonders of love at first sight. Throughout all those years, I was a diehard romantic who dreamed about happily-ever-after. And, as a lover of historical England, I couldn’t get enough of romance novels set in that time period.
     So when the time came to take the jump and write my own books, there was never a doubt as to what genre I would write in, or even the country and the time period in which I would set most of those novels. The only addition to the equation was to weave in my other great love: mystery and suspense. Which is why I refer to my historicals as historical romantic suspense. I give my readers the strongest characters I can and I place them in dangerous situations they themselves have to overcome—along with a twist or two along the way and an ending that’s satisfying on all fronts. That’s just what I did with SAMANTHA, and I hope you agree that the results are all I wanted them to be!
