Gwyn Cready's " A Novel Seduction"

  As I have said the past few weeks  A LOT of my maternity leave since November has been filled with reading in between midnigt feedings! It helps give me a sort of "adult interaction" that I do not get on a daily basis while staying home with a newborn and 3 children under the age of 5 and a hubby that works long days! I love them to pieces but reading is my "mommy time"!

 The first book I have to share with you is by the Rita Award winning author Gwyn Cready called "A Novel Seduction". I'll admit I'm not normally a romance novel reader but the words on the cover read - The fastest way to a woman's heart is between the covers - I had to check it out!

Synopisis: When snobbish book critic Ellery Sharpe screws up at Vanity Place magazine, her boss assigns her the ultimate punishment: write an ode to romance novels, a genre she considers the literary equivalent of word search puzzles. To make matters worse, he hires her sexy former party boy ex, Axel Mackenzie, to shoot the photos. Axel really wants the project to succeed. For one, the magazine will double his fee if he convinces strong-willed Ellery to write a story no woman can resist. Besides, getting Ellery to fall for romance novels might be just the push she needs to believe people can change . . . even him. At his sister’s advice, Axel gives Ellery a copy of Kiltlander, a much-adored romance whose warrior hero is utterly irresistible. To her dismay, Ellery finds herself secretly falling in love with the story—and with Axel, who’s drawing his own lessons from the book’s compelling hero. With her carefully crafted image of herself crumbling and her dream job on the line, will Ellery risk it all to make the leap from tight-lipped literati to happily-ever-after heroine?

GWYN CREADY is the recipient of the 2009 RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance and the author of Tumbling Through Time, Seducing Mr. Darcy, Flirting with Forever and Aching for Always. She has been called "the master of time travel romance." A Novel Seduction is her first foray into contemporary romance as well as men in kilts, and she found both eminently satisfying. She lives in Pittsburgh with her family. You can also stay up to date with Gwyn by liking her Facebook page and also by following her twitter account!

I would recommend this to anyone that is into the romance genre AND to any woman that hasn't tried a "romance read" yet! As I said I am not a fan of romance novels but this book is above and beyond what I was expecting! It will make you smile, laugh out loud and even get those little chills up your spine at certain parts! I may even try another! I loved the main characters in the book, especially Ellery! If you haven't given romance novels a try - give this one the chance! It will not disappoint!
