Today Allison Knight has interviewed Alric, the hero of Dark Immortal on her blog here. (NOTE: Sorry everyone, I've received word that this interview is being rescheduled for Thursday--Check back in)

I'm blogging at the Vauxhall Vixens about my dark hero, and I also gave author Kimber Chin a short quote about the first romance novel I ever read, which appears in her post on the Night Owl Romance blog. Check it out.

So tell me, do you remember the first romance you ever read?

Oh, and don't forget...

DARK IMMORTAL is now available!!

Buy it in ebook at Linden Bay Romance here!

I don't remember the first ACTUAL romance I read, but I do remember that Clan of the Cave Bear (the whole series actually) was the first adult book that I read.

J.K. Coi said...

Ohh, Natasha I remember that series (still have the books too).

Natasha said...

I occasionally go back and reread them all. Have you read the newest one? The Shelters of Stone? It took SOOOO long to come out!! I understand she was sick though..so I guess she is excused!

J.K. Coi said...

Huh, didn't know there was a new one. I'll have to look into that. Thanks!

Have you read Diana Gabaldon's series? It wasn't my first romance, by any means, obviously, but it's one of my favourites.

Natasha said...

When I say new...I mean in the last 5-7 years! lol
I tried to read her once, and I couldn't get into the series. I have heard great things, but I just couldn't get into it.

J.K. Coi said...

LOL, she's a very...thorough author. No stone gets left undescribed. But it's well worth it in my opinion. I love her beautiful use of the language and the relationship between Claire and Jaime.

I said on Kimber's blog that I remember my first romance was a Karen Robards.

Natasha said...

I don't know that I have read any of Karen Robards historicals... I used to read them, but now I much prefer the modern or futuristic.
Thorough is an excellent way to describe her! lol
See I am a skimmer. I know it's horrible. I don't remember half of what I have read, so actually it makes rereading ok :), but I skim for dialogue. If there isn't much, then I tend to loose focus! :D I don't know how I made it through Clan of the Cave Bear! lol

I don't remember my first romance but I remember my first erotic romance.

New Years Kiss by Tielle St. Claire. WOW. Hot. And a super shock to the system since it was not only erotic, it was a werewolf shifter and a menage to boot.

A very thrilling introduction to the genre...

No, I don't. In fact I've tried to track down some of the early books and haven't managed to match the plot to a title. Any good sites for looking for a title based on the plot?

J.K. Coi said...

Kytaira,
You're welcome to tell us the plot here and we'll see if we can help you figure out what the title is.

I know too that if you email the Smart Bitches, they will often help with that kind of thing as well.
