I’ve been trying for years to figure out what it is that makes some readers resistant to historical romance. I know the heat, sex, and social issues in my books easily compare with contemporary romances today. In fact, my BFF loaned a coworker one of my books, and the woman returned it say, “OMG, Karen I got wet.” LOL I love stories like that! I love it that my books can stir emotions and libidos.
My GYN doc loved the theme of my upcoming reissue, Pleasure Me. Before she retired, Dr. K always kept some of my bookmarks on hand to give to patients who were having libido problems at home. She knew my books would do the trick to stir the emotional center of a woman’s brain. If you read sexy romance, do you go find your significant other after reading a sex scene? If you answered yes, you need to let your partner know to thank a romance author! LOL
