I sometimes hear authors say that they couldn't possibly choose favorites among their books—that it would be like choosing a favorite child.
Well, maybe it's because I don't have children, but I can choose favorites.
Some books are just special to me, and I don't really know why, but here we go.
The Prenup is my favorite of all my books. It came from the heart, without regard for genre conventions, reader preferences, or publishing pressure. I felt the most like me while writing, as though I was born to write it.
Walk of Shame is another one that feels fundamentally like me. It's exactly the sort of frothy, unapologetic happily-ever-after bit of fluff that I find am immensely proud to put out into the world.
If there was ever a book where I felt the muse take over, it's Blurred Lines. I didn't even have a concept between "two best friends fall in love," but I finished it in under 10 days, and it went on to be my bestseller of all time.
Irresistibly Yours and Yours to Keep are light, and fun, and they make me smile every time I think of them. I've noticed that "light" romances are often dismissed as forgettable, as though it's only the dark and twisty angst that is worthy of remembering. Not so for this lady.
The Trouble With Love is my favorite of the Stiletto & Oxford series. I think it's one of my best books.
Made for You is one of my most polarizing books. Sales and reviews say that it's not an overall favorite, but the people who love it really love it. My fans of this book are my most vocal and most passionate.
I rarely read, or even open my books, after they've gone to print. I make an exception from Runaway Groom. I've read it probably 10 times since publication. It give me butterflies and makes me smile.
