(a.k.a. Nikoo & Jim McGoldrick)

Two peas in a pod, a pair of halfwits, the Laurel and Hardy of romance fiction...Nikoo & Jim McGoldrick were married in St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin 68 years ago before a worldwide television audience. After a honeymoon tour of their oil fields in Iran, they embarked on a writing career that has produced dozens of New York Times bestsellers, two Academy Award Winning film adaptations, and a Nobel Prize for Literature. After all this, fortune FINALLY smiled on them and they won the New Jersey Lottery. Taking their two sons, Nikoo and Jim spent a year backpacking through Africa and then seven years in Tibet, teaching the Dalai Lama the subtle intricacies of Scrabble. Upon returning to t

With regard to writer's block, we've been really blessed. Since we collaborate on everything, when one of us is feeling stuck, the other is there to keep the ball rolling.
To give an example, it's become a standing joke that when Nikoo is stuck with the beginning of a scene, laboring for hours and coming up empty, she will turn to me and say, 'Get me started.' Since we've already talked and talked and talked about the scene, I just launch into it, spending an hour or so and writing a few pages that I think are just brilliant. Nikoo then reads it over and invariably looks me in the eye and says, "Well, now I know what I DON'T want."
So, in the end, I don't have to deal with writer's block, but Nikoo has to deal with her writer's blockhead.(less)

We have so many! Pushed to choose one couple, we'd have to say...Lizzie Hexam and Eugene Wrayburn from Dickens's OUR MUTUAL FRIEND.
Born with nothing along the banks of the Thames, Lizzie is a strong and giving woman whom can survive anything. Eugene, a lawyer who hates the hypocrisy of aristocratic life, is a man who needs to grow and develop into a hero who deserves Lizzie. (less)

Description: Like every other girl her age, Killian knows all about vampires and aliens and bad boys of every description. They are not real. When a handsome young swimmer climbs into her storm-tossed boat an hour from her summer destination, however, the worlds of fantasy and reality suddenly collide…and a journey of love and self-discovery begins. Uncas Island is a place of mystery. The island has no mall, no social scene, and no action of any kind, but it does have immortal islanders, a seer with his own stone tower, and two bad boys who battle for Killian's attentions. Before the summer is through, Killian will learn the truth of her family's past and the role she is destined to play in a centuries old curse.
