Candy’s Inside BooksA look at books, authors and movie events I’d hoped to put together a list of some of my favorite books from the past year for this last column of the year. I couldn’t do it. Whittling down more than a 100 books, most of which I loved, was absolutely impossible. I will, at the end of this column give you some authors to check out if you need help with your gift buying. But we have several December releases to talk about first: Michelle Styles says THE VIKING’ CAPTIVE PRINCESS is the story of an exiled Viking princess who takes her half- sister’s place in an enemy warrior’s bed to save her sister’s life. “One of my favorite bits is doing research and finding little factoids so I was really pleased when I learned about the gem stone iolite,” Styles says. “It is a natural polarizing filter (think sun glasses!) and the Vikings used it in navigation as a sun compass because of course if you are sailing in the land of the Midnight Sun, there are no stars to guide you.

Susan Lyon | What Is It About A Series ?
Uncategorized / December 2, 2009

I love writing series. My first sale, Champagne Rules in 2005, was the first in a four-book series about four 20-something girlfriends (The Awesome Foursome) who each find their own sexy romances. I had so much fun writing four friends that next I tackled four sisters, in my new Wild Ride to Love series for Kensington. It’s a sexy “planes, trains, automobiles, and a cruise ship” series in which the Fallon sisters each experience a wild ride to love. The first book, Sex Drive (oldest sister Kat’s “planes” romance), is a December 2009 release.
