Reblogged from Cat's Books: Romance :

Writers are sexy. I mean they are almost always in their pajamas-- ready for bed. :) 


Here are some wonderful Writer Heroes and Heroines in Paranormal Romance. My lists are never in any particular order. 


1. Heart of the Highland Wolf  by Terry Spear


Modern day werewolf laird Ian MacNeill reluctantly allows a film production company to use his castle, but he knows his secretive clan has a big problem when a beautiful red werewolf female who insists she's working on the film keeps showing up in the wrong places... and a matter of pleasure...

Julia Wildthorn is not who she says she is-she's sneaking into Argent Castle to steal an ancient relic for her grandfather and to do research for her next werewolf romance novel. When she catches a glimpse of Ian, she realizes he's the perfect hero...


2. Insatiable by Meg Cabot


TV writer Meena Harper creates fabulous plots for Insatiable, the second-highest–rated soap opera, thanks to her burdensome if lucrative psychic ability to see into the future and determine how people are going to die. And just as Insatiable is switching to a vampire theme to attract a younger demographic, a spate of chilling murders-by-exsanguination grips New York City. Enter Lucien Antonescu, a sexy, melancholic Romanian history professor/vampire who recognizes that the murders are the work of rogue vampires who have broken away from his order. (Lucien happens to be the son of Vlad the Impaler, whom Bram Stoker gave such a bad rep.) Lucien's opposition: Alaric Wulf, a sympathetic detective from the Palatine Guard, who hopes to use Meena and her prophetic gift to stop the murders and track down Lucien. Unfortunately for Alaric, Meena is a little in love with Lucien.


3. The Sword And The Pen by Elysa Hendricks


It was time. After penning ten popular sword-and-sorcery novels, Brandon Alexander Davis was ready to move on. Ready to stop hiding in his fictional world. Ready to start living a real life. There was just one problem: as he plotted the noble death of Serilda D'Lar, his fictional creation, complete with mile-long sword, skimpy leather outfit and badass attitude, appeared in his study.

Was she nothing more than a crazy fan, or had Brandon finally cracked?

This warrior woman whom he knew so well, so strong yet vulnerable, was both fantasy and reality. She was an invitation to rediscover all he once knew--that life is an incredible, magical journey and, for love, any man can be a hero.


4. Highland Knight by Cindy Miles


Top mystery novelist Abigail Landry is suffering from writer's block. Seeking inspiration, she heads to a 14th-century castle in Scotland and soon finds that it's haunted by Ethan Munro and his five relatives: not ghosts, but 14th-century Scotsmen trapped between their time and the present who corporealize for one hour a day. Ethan needs Abigail's help to solve the mystery surrounding his situation and clear him of the murder of his wife in the past. As Abigail and Ethan fall for each other, they must avoid a vengeful spirit bent on killing Abigail out of jealousy, and the threat of losing each other if the mystery is finally solved. Spunky Abigail and typically gruff but warmhearted Ethan (and his rough and tumble kin) are sweetly entertaining. 


5. Angels Among Us by Jeanette Ward


Devil or angel? When Braelynn Burke goes in search of the truth behind the angel myths sweeping the country, she never expects to find devilishly sexy Gabe Harding. Forced to accept the local mechanic's grudging hospitality when her car breaks down, she discovers a man who heats her blood quicker than the torrid Kansas summer. Antagonistic, bull-headed and sexy-as-sin, Gabe is everything Braelynn doesn't want in a man, but once in his home her thoughts are anything but angelic.For his part Gabe doesn't need a seductive temptress who tries both his resolve and self-control by living under his roof. Even though his deceased wife appeared in the past as an angel, promising new love and a mother for their daughter, he's pretty sure Braelynn doesn't fit the bill. Like Braelynn, he's tormented by survivor's guilt and is unsure whether to cling to his wife's gentle spirit or believe the sassy seraph tormenting him is the woman he was told to wait for.Will they discover the truth they seek has nothing to do with angels and everything to do with their own fears? That love is not in their pasts, but in their future?


6. Heart Fortune  by Robin D. Owens


Jace Bayrum has always been a loner. Concerned more with getting an adrenaline fix and making money to live on his own, Jace cares little for family ties or matters of the heart. On the other hand Glyssa Licorice, Jace’s former fling and true mate, is both loving and loyal. She is determined to track down her HeartMate and have him claim her.

After hearing that Jace has been involved in an accident, Glyssa sets out to find him, departing for the excavation site of the lost starship Lugh’s Spear. Though her goal is to help Jace and finesse him into recognizing her as his mate, the excavation itself draws her in…

Thrust by fate into working side-by-side, Jace and Glyssa’s electric connection from years before sparks once more. She intrigues him, and Jace begins to realize that a HeartMate can make a difference. And one as magnetic as Glyssa could be exactly what he has been searching for…


7. Single White Vampire by Lynsay Sands


Reclusive Lucern Argeneau, a family biographer who has been classified as a paranormal romance author, is stunned when Kate C. Leever, his new editor at Roundhouse Publishing (read: Dorchester), shows up on his doorstep demanding he make a public appearance to appease his fans. After some urging from the beguiling Kate, he agrees to go to the Romantic Times convention, little knowing that he'll have to contend with adoring fans and a week full of parties and signings


8. Viking, go Home by Faith V. Smith


ulgar Thorrason’s inability to keep his lust under control earns him the ire of a Faery Princess, who sends him forward in time to modern-day Michigan to learn the difference between lust and love. There he meets Raven Harrison, a romance author. The petite beauty piques his lust, but he sees red when she scoffs at his tale of being a time-traveling Viking.

Raven is blown over by the handsome and half-dressed man who comes out of nowhere. His sensuality sends a shiver of desire straight to her feminine core. However, his tale of being curse by a Faery leads her to believe he should be locked up for his own protection. Before she can suggest just that, someone begins shooting at them, and both she and the Viking are running for their lives.

A circumstance that brings them closer in more ways than one, until their unknown assailant threatens Wulf’s life. Now both must make decisions that could destroy their relationship before it gets off the ground—and before the Viking is snatched back to the past.


9. Any Man So Daring by Sarah A. Hoyt


William Shakespeare, successful playwright, receives word that his only son has died. Reality is far more complex. The young Hamnet is a hostage in fairyland, where a war rages, and where a young princess waits a Prince Charming who might never come.
Can an all too human playwright stop the magical war that threatens both worlds?



10. The Open Water Swimmer by Sabrina Devonshire


When children’s mystery writer Dana Thomas has recurring nightmares about a swimmer drowning during an open water race, she aims to change his fate. Dana’s plan to remain objective makes a serious splashdown when she meets her “mission,” a towering blue-eyed man with the best cut set of pectorals she’s ever seen. Going incognito as a feeding station volunteer for FINA World Cup series races, she travels to Greece, Portugal, Honduras, and Tunisia to protect him.
