The kind of agents who take on a lot of clients and throw manuscripts out there to publishers hoping some will stick.
If you're a writer on the hunt for an agent or hope to be some day, please read.

Where else can you watch movies and read books, all in the name of research!
Starting with THE LINCOLN LAWYER.
In a word? Wow!
Matthew McConaughey nails the role of lawyer Mickey Haller (from Michael Connelly's novel) perfectly.
I recently reviewed the book THE BRASS VERDICT, a follow up to The Lincoln Lawyer, and seeing the film makes me want to read the book all the more.
Ryan Phillipe gives a great portrayal of the villain: chilling. And the support cast are excellent.
I can't review the plot without major spoilers but suffice to say, there are twists and turns galore.
My only lament? Matthew doesn't get his shirt off enough :)
The muse rates this 8/10.

INTERVIEW WITH THE DAREDEVIL.
Considering that's exactly what the heroine, Ava, gets to do at the fabulous Palazzo Versace, the title is rather apt.
And the book I've just started writing is already scheduled and titled:
WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE? will be a Jan Riva/Harlequin Romance release.
Guess I better write Rory and Gemma's story pronto!

Fillings, root canals, you name it, he's having it.
And yesterday was his first orthodontic visit, where I learned he'll need to wear braces on his top teeth for a year.
He had the most beautifully straight baby teeth and lost his first 4 over summer.
Unfortunately, due to crowding, the top 2 are crooked and not leaving much room for the rest when they come down.
So we need spacing and straightening.
I know it won't hurt much and I know he'll cope admirably but he's pretty sensitive and the thought of him going through teasing so early...
Hey, I'm a mum.
It's my job to worry :)

I've read some cracker Harlequin Romances over the years, too many to mention (though Liz Fielding's THE MARRIAGE MIRACLE, her RITA winner featuring a wheelchair bound heroine, is a standout.)
What have been your favourite Harlequin Romances over the years? Recommendations?
