  1. Excellent recommendation!!

    I fell in love with romances after reading Kathleen Woodiwiss’ book “Shanna” as a young adult. I subsequently read all her others. “Wolf and the Dove” is another classic. Thanks for reminding me of this title. I would read her books again and again, the settings are rich, the characters complex, and the stories rife with emotion.

    If readers like Woodiwiss, they’ll likely enjoy Johanna Lindsey, too. 🙂

    • Oh Jolyse, Your comment reminded me of why we all love romances. *Trying hard not to cry.* My first romance was “Katherine” by Anya Seton. When I was a teenager, my dad brought the story home for me to read while in bed with the flu. For hours, I got lost in the past with John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and forgot to feel bad. “Shanna” and Johanna Lindsey sound like must-reads, too–adding to my August book order, now. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Isn’t it great when books hold up over the years? You know the writer really spoke from the heart…which never changes.

    • Hi Vickie, Absolutely! Perhaps, this is the most important part of writing to master. Hope to see you at DARA. Cheers, Ashley

      • Hi again, Vickie, Considering how well you write, I believe your stories will last for years and years and years.

        For those new to Vickie’s stories, be sure to check them out, along with any of her writing-craft classes.

        Cheers, Ashley

  3. Woodiwiss and Lindsey Such memories. I feel like reading them all over again. Thanks Ashley!

    • Hi Kara, You’re very welcome. Reading stories again is a great idea. New details always appear that were missed the first time. Cheers, Ashley
