Books: Old-Fashioned Romance

In Case You Were Wondering, What Do I Mean By an Old Fashioned Romance?

Old fashioned romances are most often referred to as Traditional romances and are also sometimes called Sweet romances or even Clean and Wholesome (although I'm not fond of that tag, Amazon uses it--they don't use sweet or traditional--so I have occasionally been forced to the wall on that one). In addition to the differing terms, there can be some disagreement on the level of sensuality and/or things such as curse words. Some people are purists (absolutely no swearing and no sensuality).

In my case, I'm not particularly strict about these things. In fact, I can't imagine writing a book without a bit of heat between the hero and heroine, so in my old fashioned romances, there is a certain level of sensuality, although (as these were originally published as Silhouette Romances), there are no love scenes before marriage, although...there may be a love scene or two after marriage. Some people feel there should be absolutely no swearing. My characters (okay, my heroes) might occasionally use a rather mild curse word, although that's pretty rare. That pretty much wraps up what makes these books different from my other books (the ones with love scenes).

I wrote quite a few books in this style for Silhouette and have the rights back to a number of them, so I'll be listing them here as I republish them. (Clicking through on the link or image will take you to a page with a description and links to all the major booksellers. Eventually, I'll add excerpts there as well, but in the meantime, most of the booksellers have either a Look Inside the Book feature where you can read the first couple of chapters or they offer a free downloadable sample of an ebook, or both). At the moment, I haven't gotten around to making all of these available in print editions, but I plan to do that eventually.
