Friday Favorites with Susanna Carr

Favorite Genre: sexy contemporary romance

List 5 Favorite Books in that Genre:
A Very Stylish Affair by Emma Darcy
Full Bloom by Jayne Ann Krentz
Live a Little by Nancy Warren
Rule Breaker by Barbara Boswell
The Sicilian's Virgin Bride by Sarah Morgan

Favorite Author in that Genre, and Favorite Book by that Author:
My favorite author in sexy contemporary romance is Lori Foster. She really emphasizes the intimacy in her ultra-sensual love stories and her greatest strength is creating lovable characters who places family above all else. The sexual tension and love scenes are so hot because the reader cares deeply about the hero and heroine.

My favorite book by Lori Foster is Too Much Temptation. This is a wonderfully sensual story, but what really got me was the loyalty and unconditional love between Noah and Grace. The way they protected and backed up each other, you knew they found the love of their lives in their best friend.

Favorite Book of All Time:
Right of Possession by Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz). It's a battle of the sexes kind of story with a very independent woman and the most alpha male hero I've read.

Favorite Book Read Last Month:
Because I can't wait for Sarah Morgan's upcoming book, I'm re-reading my favorites of hers. Last month I read Powerful Greek, Unworldly Wife. It's a wonderful love story!

Favorite Book You Wrote:
It's probably the story I wrote for Wicked Wonderland, which comes out November 2010. I usually write about good girls gone bad, but in my novella "Hot for the Holidays" Rachel is a reformed bad girl trying so hard not to give into temptation and go wild with Justin. It was very different for me and it turned out to be a lot of fun to write.

Favorite Romantic movie:
French Kiss starring Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline

Susanna Carr
The Year of Living Shamelessly
Every year, Katie Kramer makes the same New Year's resolution: have a wild affair with her brother's best friend, Ryder Scott. Every year, it's the same disappointment. It doesn't help that her good-girl reputation can't stand up to the hot competition, or that Ryder's always seen Katie as just his friend's innocent sister.

Ryder adores the Kramers. And it's always been a pleasure to keep an eye out for the sweet and uncomplicated Katie. Of course he'd never let on that he's always had a thing for her—to actually act on it would be impossible. Because Ryder's got a dirty side only a few girls really appreciate.

He never expected that Katie would make the first move—much less match him, kink for kink. But this year, Katie knows what she wants. With less than a week to show off her X-rated side, she sheds all her inhibitions. When it comes to satisfying a few fantasies, a woman has to be shameless.
