Theme Day: Writers

I thought it would be fun to showcase stories that one or more of the characters are writers.  I always like these stories, sometimes it is a a surprise that they can write about something they know nothing about which can lead to a hilarious story.  Here are a few I have enjoyed.

Tangled Up In You  (Writer Friends, #3) (Truly, Idaho, #2)True HeartSingle White Vampire (Argeneau, #3)Erotic Research (Black and White Collection #1)

Sex, Lies, and Online Dating (Writer Friends, #1)Sex, Lies, and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lucy is a mystery writer who is currently writing about a female serial killer who is strangling her online victims. When she meets Quinn hoping he will be the last of the dates she is using for research, she is surprised by the attraction she feels for him and his ability to break through and touch her heart. What Lucy doesn't know is Quinn is a homicide detective and Lucy is his number one suspect.

Clever and very funny, Lucy has had a string of bad boyfriends and thinks she sees something in Quinn, while Quinn is playing his part he finds it difficult to keep it business as usual especially when he is looking at suspected murderer Luc.

Here a couple that a reader suggested to add. I have read This Heart of Mine, but Welcome to Temptation is a new recommendation that I quickly added to my TBR.
This Heart of Mine (Chicago Stars, #5)Welcome to Temptation (Dempseys, #1)Divorced, Desperate and Delicious (Divorced, #1)

Also this one which I have read and loved
Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Bridgertons, #4)


  1. Ooh, add "This Heart of Mine" to the list (by Susan Elizabeth Phillips).

    And "Welcome to Temptation" by Jennifer Cruisie, which has an author theme, although she's writing screen plays. Seriously, need to read this one if you haven't some very funny scenes.

  2. Two more to add, Divorced, Desperate and Dating by Christie Craig. And Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, by Julia Quinn. While both have steamy scenes, they aren't erotic though (the Julia Quinn one is a Regency. :-) )

    I love these lists.
