Kassa came up with a lovely idea: Write a fan letter to an author and let them know they are appreciated. She kindly organized a group of bloggers and created a schedule which you can see on Erotic Horizon’s blog if you click the graphic below. Yesterday Cecile over at All I Want And More had a lovely thank you post on her blog. Be sure to visit KatieBabs blog tomorrow to see which author she will thank. Today is my turn.
When I first sat down to write my letter I thought I’d pick an author off my list of many favorites and tap away at the keyboard. But then I realized, it wasn’t going to be that easy. There are so many writers who have entertained me, made me laugh, kept me on the edge of my seat or made me want to throw a book across the room with a crazy cliff hanger. So how to decide who to write my letter to today? It truly wasn’t easy but in the end I had to pick just one.
I chose an author who I discovered late last year that rocked my world with erotic romance. I wrote in my review of her book, Switch:
“[…] I will safely say Megan Hart has reset the bar in what I expect from an erotic romance.”
Dear Ms. Hart,
I discovered your wonderful work late last year and have been a fan every since I read your novel, Switch. I didn’t know exactly what to expect from Switch as you were a ‘new to me’ author, but the blurb and cover appealed to me so I gave it a go. One chapter in and I knew I was reading something very special. You moved me and made me want to grab up another Megan Hart novel as soon as possible. So far I’ve read five of your books and I intend to work my way through every one I can get my hands on. I admit that I do have to take a break between books as your stories move me in ways I had never thought a romance novel could.
You write such emotionally complicated, deeply moving stories and I believe you are in a class by yourself when it comes to contemporary, erotic romance. You write about heroines that are far from perfect, and as you take me on their emotional journeys I grit my teeth, I occasionally cry, and I always celebrate in their joys. When it comes to addressing sensuality and sexuality in relationships, you reign supreme. I love that your heroines are in charge of their own orgasms. They are unashamed of their sexuality and take their pleasure when and where they choose. Your stories are thoughtful and provocative, and you never fail to take me a little further than I was prepared to go. Although your stories sometimes address topics that I tend to shy away from in contemporary romance, I have learned to trust that you will handle these topics with finesse and grace, yet you will still capture the raw emotional impact that comes with these very real human emotions.
Each time I pick up one of your books, I experience a certain amount of excitement mixed with just a touch of apprehension because I know you will ‘take me there’ but I will like it (love it). I know before I even begin that I am in for a treat and I will savor every word to it’s fullest.
Thank you Megan Hart for sharing your amazing talent.
My favorite Megan Hart Novels (so far):
I’m currently reading Deeper, then looking forward to reading Tempted and eagerly awaiting the release of Naked.
