Does anybody else miss the branding within a line?
Couple fall in love over 3 days but in the context of the short book Silhouette Desire, I believe it worked. Blaze is my go-to line for when I want fun and sexy. Harlequin hardly holds the market share on that! You tend to get a very strong focus on the romance in categories. And trust me, when you hit upon an author who writes the format well? Absolutely nothing better.
Picking 5 favorites is really, really hard for me because I have enjoyed so many category romances. I used to buy more than I do now. The lousy titles of recent years have turned me off.
However, when I look past the titles and pick up the books themselves, I do find some gems. Perchance to Dream by Kathleen Korbel 3.
- Worth Lying For;
- The Violins of Saint-Jacques: A Tale of the Antilles.
- There Is Still More.
- Changelings & Other Stories;
- Manual Witness Seduction (Mills & Boon Blaze).
- The Two Elsies A Sequel to Elsie at Nantucket.
- See a Problem?!
Break the NIght by Anne Stuart 5. Do-Over by Dorien Kelly. Note: I limited myself to the contemporary lines. If I started going back into my stash of series historicals, this would be the longest list ever!

My top 5 are: 1. Power Play by Nancy Warren have you got yours yet Katie??? Under the Influence by Nancy Warren. These books, break my ruts, and are great for quick reads. Cindy W : 2. I happened across your blog early this year and picked up Under the Influence based on your recommendation. I agree with you with one exception. The titles are a real problem for me, and HP is actually my favorite category line.
Yet, I still find it hard to choose books with the information provided. With such cloudy information to work with, I think readers can be excused for dismissing them. Yes, it can be argued that all romances are prone to silly titles and inaccurate blurbs, but not to the same extent and not usually both at the same time. The HP line is consistently misleading.
Name That Book cont. Part II
Maybe if the publisher treated them like real books with real titles and blurbs, readers would as well. Yes, that is me Katie! When I signed up for the forum, I did it under baseballmom5, not Cindy W. It must have been during a good baseball season or something so you may not have recognized me either! That book got me back into reading series books. I love Blazes, but am open to just a darn good quick story!
Thank you, Katie. You have expressed my feelings perfectly. I have often thought that category gets a similar response within Romance to what Romance gets from non-romance readers. About the blurbs. I can assure you that they are not computer generated. Generally they are written by the editor, who ought to know what the book is about. If you consider that one is wrong or misleading, try writing to the senior editor of the line, or let the author know.
Most of us have email and will probably be glad to pass on that type of concern.
