Do you make them grovel?

I recently saw a post where a reader was complaining that she didn't think authors made the hero grovel enough when they had to get back into the heroines good graces after the dreaded black moment in a story. There was a lot of agreement echoed in the post which surprised me. Most of the women commenting wanted the hero to work a lot harder in order to be forgiven. They felt the heroines were too easy on the heroes.

What Helen Read #27: June 2018

I'm late, y'all!! So late!! This post was meant to have gone up last week, but alas! it did not happen. Work got the better of me and then when the weekend came, I was in a bit of a mood because I was so exhausted, so I didn't do much. Finally got off my behind and put this together on Sunday. Very late!!!

Anyway, enough of my lamenting, didn't Helen have a great month in June. Looks like she read some fantastic books.

Here's what Helen read for the last month.

Guest Post: Challenges of love and ambition in a time of war by Pamela Hart | New Release: The Desert Nurse

I'm excited to have Pamela visit the bloggity. This is not her first time though cos Mr Manview has done a post on one of her previous books, A Letter From Italy. He gave it 5 whopping stars!! And she has become one of his favorite historical romance writers, so you can imagine my delight when Pamela agreed to write a guest post to give us insights to The Desert Nurse.

The Desert Nurse by Pamela Hart

Please give Pamela a very warm welcome.

Challenges of love and ambition in a time of war

I love this headline! It really sums up The Desert Nurse for me. (Wish I’d thought of it for the tag-line!)

The Desert Nurse is set in WWI, and it’s hard for us to realise how profoundly everyone’s lives were changed by that war. Australia has been involved in several wars over the past twenty years, but the day-to-day life of ordinary people hasn’t been affected, because those wars are fought by professionals.
