Battle of the Books: First “He’s Hot” Moment by Gina Conkle*

The Battle of the Books continues…     Two novels in my Midnight Meetings series are launching in these final months of 2017: The Lord Meets His Lady (book 3) and Meet a Rogue at Midnight (book 4, a novella). Part of the fun has been comparing hallmark scenes in romance and seeing which book fared better. I’m continuing “Battle of the Books”* with “The Heroine’s First ‘He’s...

Both men appear as key secondary characters in the Midnight Meetings series. Now they get their own books, but as men, they couldn’t be more different. So, here’s a reader poll for you. Which hero archetype appeals to you the...
