Academic blogging

I had a lovely email from Dr. Laura Vivanco last night, saying she'd blogged about one of my books.

I was immediately intrigued and rushed over here to take a look.

Her observations about CONTRACT TO MARRY were very interesting and she picked up exactly how I'd used the heroine Fleur's best friend Liv (who reads romance novels) as a perfect foil for Fleur's cynicism.

CONTRACT TO MARRY features an older hero, Darcy (38) and a much younger, much more cynical heroine Fleur who doesn't believe in marriage and all that rot! Of course, Darcy changes her mind eventually...This is a romance after all!

I'd love to hear what you think about Dr. Vivanco's blog.

I found all this really interesting, Nic! How did you luck onto your book I wonder.

I have no idea!
I'd say she reads romance novels anyway and mine happened to be the one she wanted to blog about because it highlighted a 'metaromance'.
