“Cat Ladies, Sex Kittens, and Romance…” I am intrigued


I am anxiously awaiting Sarah MacLean’s third book in her “Scoundrels” series. It’s due out later this month, so I’ll have a satisfying read with that extra piece of pumpkin pie…That I shouldn’t eat…But will…Then feel bad because I wasn’t supposed to…Then say, “to hell with it.” It’s a crazy dialogue that goes on in my head, people, and that’s all I can say about it. Don’t judge me.

But back to the book.

If you haven’t read any of MacLean’s stories yet, I suggest you do so immediately. I know what kind of books I like, and in romance, I stick to specific writers because I know I’ll like what they write, and I feel invested in the worlds they create. Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, Jennifer Crusie, Mary Jo Putney and Mary Balogh. The list goes on. But because I get carried away with reading every single thing those authors have written, I sometimes find myself with the tough task of having to search through the bookstore racks to “discover” new authors (as if I’m going to see them in a mall, and say, “Kid, I’m going to make you a star!” That’s not how it happens, I know, but in my head, that’s how most movie stars get made. Does it make sense, no. Is it fun to imagine pre-famous movie stars in malls, yes.)

But back to the book.

I found Sarah MacLean by going to the Avon Romance website avonromance.com, where MacLean posts regularly. So I read her books. The Rules of Scoundrels series revolves around a group of men who are not your run-of-the-mill London gentlemen, thus the scoundrels part. I’ve been waiting for the third book, and soon I’ll be able to catch up with all the characters that I’ve come to invest in.

Anyway, this tangent of a post is really just a way to share an interview of Sarah MacLean’s where she (eloquently) lets everyone know you have a right to your guilty pleasure books, and there is no need for them to be “guilty”. Make honest women and men of them, why don’tcha? I liked the interview, so anyway. Here it is.
