Outside of a Dog, #8

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx.

Believe it or not, there are all different types of romances. Adventure romances, humorous romances, inspirational or Christian romances, contemporary romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense, chick lit, and romances that deal with a variety of so-called women’s issues. In this issue of Outside of a Dog, I’d like to give readers an example or two of adventure romance’s notable authors:

Cherry Adair’s books are a good illustration of adventure romances. She gives her readers a strong romantic plot blended with an exciting adventure storyline. Most of her novels deal with strong male characters who are involved with the military, police, or Special Forces. The majority came out originally in paperback. Here are just a few of her recent titles.

White Heat (2007) SHL TPL ARM

Edge of Darkness (2006) WCV WMB

Edge of Fear (2006) WMB

Edge of Danger (2006) WMB

Hot Ice (2005) ROG SHL TPL ARM

Susan Anderson’s titles, on the other hand, feature a blend of romance and suspense but it is the large dose of humor that keeps her audience turning the pages.

Just for Kicks (2006) WAM SHL

Head over Heels (2002) WMB WDB

All Shook Up (2001) CLL SHL TPL

Next week we will give you some suggestions for contemporary and inspirational romances.
