Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 335 comments It seems like contemporary romances usual have the heroine being an executive, business owner, lawyer, or something else kind of glamorous.

What are some books where the heroine has an unusual job. Tell us the book and the job.

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 335 comments That sounds intresting.


Paganalexandria  | 4037 comments I didn't necessarily like this book Beautiful Prey by Phoenix Daniels , but the heroine was an undercover officer, working the stroll in order to catch a murderer. It has tons of good reviews, so maybe you might like it.


The heroine in Safe House (Steel Infidels Biker MC Romance) by Dez Burke is veterinarian.


The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears (thefountainpendiva) | 1210 comments Shiree McCarver has a new Blasian romance coming out in which the heroine is the lead singer for a symphonic metal band. Now you KNOW I'll be raving like crazy over this one!

I have been utterly FIENDING for this since she started it on last year's NaNoWriMo.

You guys got me curious about this one so I went to McCarvers web site. I found this http://www.lulu.com/shop/shiree-mccar... Sounds like that might be it. There are some other interesting titles there too. I'll have to try something by this author.

Megan (meganscoils) | 674 comments In Where We Belong by Emily Giffin she was an executive producer and writer for TV shows. In The Space Between (Space, #1) by Victoria H. Smith she was an opera singer. lol I've never noticed.

Tea | 464 comments Whoa! If the book Andrea found is the right one, damn, girl!! Five hundred twenty-nine pages for a NaNo project sounds pretty amazing to me.


message 16: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 335 comments Nano is only the beginning! You're considered a "winner" if you complete 200 pages (50K words). After that is the hard part of whipping all that spew into a structured story that other people can read. lol. That is probably where the additional length came from.

Tea | 464 comments Oh, I know how NaNo works. I just know few people who write more than twice the minimum requirement for winning – even after the month is up.

But to have it edited and ready for publication fewer than six months later... ? I find that even more impressive. (Then again, perhaps I'd see things differently if I'd ever participated in in NaNoEdMo.)

The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears (thefountainpendiva) | 1210 comments @Andrea: McCarver's newest one is called "Metal Love Song" and it's not up yet. However, Visual-Kei Rock Star is amazing. If you're a fan of Japanese VK music, this one's right up your alley. If you don't know what VK is, I'll be more than happy to talk your ear off, lol.

I've done NaNoWriMo before and I've won twice. I just like to see if I can do 50k in a month, though I'm still editing last year's entry.

Tina | 1369 comments In A race for redemption by Serenity King . The heroine a race car driver.


message 20: by A.W. (new)

A.W. Giselle Carmichael's book Arms of a Stranger is about the horrible affects from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the heroine Simone Lardner is a professional chef but she leaves that life behind to volunteer rebuilding and restoring homes in her home town destroyed by the hurricane so that was cool to read about the heroine's ability to build an entire house from the ground up.


Paganalexandria  | 4037 comments Yesterday I was in another group, and this guy casually said check out my books under these two different female pen names, and listed one of his favorite themes as Interracial. Me thinking naively, "cool!", checked them out on Amazon. Big mistake, the titles were like, "Colored Chicks with...", you get the idea. That's what prompted my earlier rant. Thought it a good idea to clarify, I will read anyone version of INTERRACIAL ROMANCE, but am leery of things offered in the EROTICA market.
