"A Candle Loses Nothing By Lighting Another Candle" - Father James Keller

Friday, December 2, 2011


Favorite Genre(s):
Tracy: Romance is my favorite. Surprise, right? Then, under the subgenres, first and foremost historical. But I love contemporaries and paranormal, too. Though I’d say I like “light” paranormal. Psychic characters are cool. Things like that. I’m not yet into the shape-shifting, etc., though if the characters are great, the chemistry between them well-defined, I’d read almost anything. It’s the characters for me. The relationships.

List of at least 5 Favorite Books in that Genre:
Tracy: VOWS – LaVyrle Spencer. It was the first romance I ever read, so holds a special place in my heart.
DANCE – Judith Ivory. Simply love her. Wonderfully expressive writer. **This is my favorite book in the Genre – and of all time, I think! (To answer the question early.)
Another recent favorite! PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS - Sherry Thomas
Another recent favorite! WHEN HARRY MET MOLLY - Kieran Kramer
Another recent favorite! SCANDALOUS DESIRES – Elizabeth Hoyt

Favorite Book Read Last Month:
Tracy: IN TOTAL SURRENDER – Anne Mallory

Favorite Book You Wrote: (Please explain why)
Tracey: Easy answer! TIDES OF LOVE. Backstory: Tides of Love was written first. Brother: Noah Garrett. TIDES OF PASSION followed: Zach Garrett.
Why Tides of Love if I had to chose one? Well, Noah Garrett is MY type of hero. He’s a marine biologist, Outer Banks, 1898. He lives a controlled life until her meets Elle. He’s a sexy nerd. Almost too intelligent to see love staring him in the face. He’s the gorgeous dork.

“Terrific dialogue…and hot loves scenes. If you haven’t read
Tracy Sumner before, TIDES OF PASSION is a good place to start.”
—All About Romance

Spirited Savannah Connor is passionately committed to stamping out social injustice. Yet when she arrives in Pilot Isle, North Carolina, ready to take up a new cause, she quickly finds herself on the outs with the town constable. Zachariah Garrett is the most arrogant, infuriating, maddeningly attractive man it’s ever been her misfortune to meet. And suddenly, Savannah is fighting  a whole new battle—this one against her own yearning for a man who is impossible to resist.

Ever since his wife’s death two years ago, Zachariah Garrett has dedicated his life to keeping the peace. And avoiding the thought of love. But Savannah Connor isn’t an ordinary woman—and she proves hard to ignore. She’s a beguiling beauty with the power to awaken emotions Zach thought he’d never feel again, and the tenderness to help him forget his fears. And risk his heart once more.
