So, like me, you’re a romance fan? It’s my one undeniable weakness. Show me a sappy movie, a heart-melting book or let me hear an emotional song about love and I’m a goner. Sold. Sign me UP.
Which means, over the last…ummm…few years, I’ve read, watched, seen and heard a LOT of stories about love, falling in love, losing love, finding love, making love. Love is in the air, isn’t it? Isn’t it always?
Now, I combine my two favorite loves, science fiction and romance, in the Interstellar Brides series. In Mating Fever, our sassy, smart, little-bit-crazy heroine gets a bit more than she bargained for when her assigned mate is a Beast suffering from Mating Fever. Beauty and the Beast? Yep, you guessed it, one of my favorites.
But make Beast a hot, protective, sexy-as-hell alpha male in outer space? Yes. I DID do that. Sorry. (Not Sorry!)
But I digress. Top 5 BEST HEA’s ever? Here’s my personal list. What’s on yours?
1 – Beauty and the Beast (Yes, I saw the new movie. LOVED it.)
2 – Blay and Qhuinn in Lover At Last by JR Ward – I cried for an hour… (*warning – it’s a gay vampire romance, and one of the best love stories I’ve ever read…especially if you know their history in the previous books. Explicit scenes – including a M/M/M/M/F scene may be a bit much for some readers.)
3 – Jerry Maguire and Dorothy Boyd – Movie magic. “You had me at Hello.” swoons
4 – Alessandro and Theresa in The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders. I read this when it was Indie – and I’ve read it at least a half dozen times. A woman whose heart has been broken by her husband, and a man who realizes his mistake too late. Their path back to each other is truly beautiful.
5 – Mercy and Riley in Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. Re-read. Re-read. Re-read. It’s amazing every time. She’s a cat shifter, he’s a wolf, and they both have claws and the attitudes to go with them. Y.U.M.
Love comes in all forms. May you find your personal bliss, and may your days be full of love and Happily-Ever-Afters.
About Grace Goodwin
Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead. Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of. She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.
