About this author

Laura Landon taught high school for ten years before leaving the classroom to open her own ice-cream shop. As much as she loved serving up sundaes and malts from behind the counter, she closed up shop after penning her first novel. Now she spends nearly every waking minute writing, guiding her heroes and heroines to find their happily ever afters.

She is the author of more than a dozen historical novels, including SILENT REVENGE, INTIMATE DECEPTION, and her newest Montlake Romance release, INTIMATE SURRENDER.

Her books are enjoyed by readers around the world and you can find out more about her by visiting her website at www.lauralandon.com

I think when we sit down to write and we struggle, we've taken a wrong turn in our story, or we've forgotten an element that our inner voice is telling us must be added.
When I have trouble, I rely on my writer friends to help me out. When I can't see the forest for the trees, I have to rely on them to see my forest and point it out to me.

Last week during our writing challenge, one of our members sent an inspirational quote each day along with her daily check-in request. I looked forward to getting her emails, not only to post my accomplishment, but also to read the quote she sent with them. I loved them, and almost every day I experienced one of those "ahh" moments that don't come along often enough.


Since then, I've been amazed...

ch&ra Thank you very much for the friend request :D I'm honoured to have a writer as a friend here in GR, imagined my surprise to see your name appeared (Looks like my reading list is expanding even more >D)


message 10: by Carly

Carly Thanks for the friendship Laura. Nice to meet you. :)


Carol *Young at Heart Oldie* Hi Laura! I agree about Lord of Scoundrels, it's a favourite of mine as well. I also love The Last Hellion.

I've been an Official Reviewer for The Romance Reviews since September 2010 under the name CarolAnn.

I'd love to review your books. I already have When Love is Enough and Shattered Dreams on my PC Kindle App. I'm more than happy to receive ebooks for any of your other books you would like me to review. I'll send you a PM with my email address.

Thanks for your kind comments about my reviews!


message 8: by Laura

Laura Landon Hi, Carol! It's great to meet you!

Yes, we have several authors in common, and yes, I've read several of Loretta Chase's books. She's one of my "must read" authors. Lord of Scoundrels will always be on my "favorite reads" list!

I went to your review site - Great reviews! I haven't read Loretta Chase's new release yet, but have it on my "must-read" list.

I wasn't aware that you reviewed for The Romance Reviews, but I would love to have you review my books. Will it work if I send an ebook, or do you prefer paperbacks?

Thanks again!

Carol *Young at Heart Oldie* Hi Laura, thanks for the friend invite. I am really looking forward to reading When Love is Enough and Shattered Dreams. I love books with lots of angst and the videos for them are great.

We have some authors in common I notice - Lisa Kleypas, Lorraine Heath and Elizabeth Hoyt. Have you ever read any of Loretta Chase's books? They're sexy and funny.

I write reviews for The Romance Reviews which I subsequently post on Goodreads. Here's a link to my page - I have a couple of Loretta Chase books I have reviewed on there.
