Isabelle Joshua wrote her first novel while in graduate school. She is a mother of five children and has been married for over 12 years. She lives in the south and enjoys her air conditioner while sitting in front of her laptop creating stories, researching ideas, or getting sidetracked by funny videos.

She loves romance and interesting characters. She's been an avid reader since childhood. Her characters are witty and complex, they love intensely, and most of the time steam up the windows with their heat. She loves a good story that captures a reader and doesn't let go. She hopes to create stories that capture her readers as well.

But I have the sequel to The Swallow that I've started and need to finish. I also have two smaller books that will also be in the series that I have ideas about. Then I have about two or three other books separate from the Caged Beauty Series that I am in various stages of writing.(less)

First there are so many beloved couples in books but the ones that I am thinking of have issues that don't make them my favorite like Scarlett and Rhett don't end up together until the sequel (which wasn't written by Margaret Mitchell) or Elizabeth and Darcy (love them, but we don't see them together much to know how they are except before they are a couple). Maybe, America and Prince Maxim from The Selection Series but they don't feel like my favorite. Or Rebecca Bloomwood and Luke Brandon from Shopaholic Series but he's always so busy. Or Tris and Four but gosh that's so tragic, and they are barely together as a couple. Oh, but I do love Juliette and Warner from Shatter Me series, they might take it because of their story is so dramatic and hot. But they aren't together as a good couple until the end, which once they are together it is so good. Until I can think of a better couple, which usually is the couple that I am currently reading, I think Shatter Me's couple Juliette and Warner are it for me right now. Sorry, that was long, but I love romance and want every couple to end up together.(less)

Review: Fast Women

Fast Women Fast Women by Jennifer Crusie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was a fun and fast read. I did get a little confused by all the characters and the back story and the mystery plot. But it was a good book and held my interest.

“He stops walking and grasps both of my hands to stop me. He narrows his eyes at me. "You’ve never been tickled? Ever?” His lips curl in a wickedly sexy smile. “You’re a tickle…virgin?”
I nod and tilt my head down, looking demure. He makes it sound so erotic. I finally find my voice. “It wasn’t a virginity I ever focused on.”
Isabelle Joshua, The Swallow

“Rachel moans, “Great. Well, he’s not the only one sexually frustrated.”

I laugh. “Well, then get over these issues so you both can be relieved.”

“How’s Alex?” She raises an eyebrow at me.

“I’m sure fine,” I say defensively. “I haven’t seen him in a few weeks.”

“Really? I thought he made a nightly appearance.”

“Rachel, those dreams aren’t him. It’s my f’ed up brain replaying my memories as a form of torture...”
Isabelle Joshua, The Bluebird

“I take a deep breath and let him tilt my shoulders back. I gaze up, and he peers down at me. He kisses my eyes, my mouth—deeply, sensually—stirring my depths.
He undresses me as he blesses my skin with his kisses. “Lay down,” he directs. I’m bare, vulnerable, open, and full of love.”

“Ah, I love this; I love...your mouth on me.” He feels so good. Ah. His fingers replace his tongue. My emotions bubble up to the surface, screaming for release. I want to tell him how I feel. My eyes gloss with tears. I love him. I love you. I love you. Alex, I love you.”

“I want to have my friend back, so I need to set him straight. I am by his side and he looks up to see me. I speak before he can say anything.
“Are you talking to me yet? Because I don’t believe you’re justified in your anger. I get to make my own decision about the relationships that I may or may not have. And I can choose at what pace I have that relationship. If you don’t like it, then tough. You’re happy—you have Bethany. Let me find my own happiness. You can’t tell me what to do about this. I have to make up my own mind. Okay?”
Isabelle Joshua, The Swallow

“I feel a strong hand caress my inner elbow and his lips at my ear. “You look good dancing.”
I turn and Alex and I share the same breathing space. It’s hard to keep my eyes away from his mouth. “Really? I didn’t realize you saw me.”
He narrows his eyes briefly. “I see you.”
