Contemporary Romance vs. Historical Romance….

Which do you like better? Contemporary Romance or Historical Romances?

I find contemporaries are fun and a bit easier to write (less research) although my husband and I went to Universal Studios in Hollywood and took the Studio Lot Tour for research for The Christmas Valentine. I learned so much from that tour and our trip to L.A. I guess that’s the fun kind of research!

Historicals are more involved and I find that sometimes the setting/time period leads the story in a more important way, sometimes becoming the protagonist. That can happen in contemporaries of course (think earthquake, natural disasters, landmarks, etc.) but it hasn’t been the case for my contemporaries yet. ūüôā Here’s two different options to choose from:

Highlander1               A_Christmas_Valentine_bold_finished

Historial, Christmas tale set in Scotland. ¬† ¬†Contemporary Christmas/Valentine’s tale set in Saugatuck and L.A.

Both are under $3.99! Less than most greeting cards or a movie ticket! Enjoy!

    Jamie- In answer to your question I have preferred historical romances / historical fiction for many years (decades, actually- BJ Hoff’s original series about Irish immigrants coming to America fleeing the potato famine is one of my favorites)… Well, I just finished your first book “Snow Angel”. It was so good that I could hardly put it down! I laughed.. I cried as the story carried me along like a river. Your description of the gold rush to Alaska was very detailed, so much so that I felt I was experiencing it myself- how cool it that! The romance between Elizabeth & Noah was stirring & unpredictable- filled with suspense about Elizabeth’s past. I understood her hurt & reluctance to trust people… I was sad when the story ended, and told my husband that “Snow Angel” should be made into a MOVIE!!! It’d be EONS better than any Hallmark movie-that’s for sure. I am looking forward to reading more of your novels!
