R is for Romantic Suspense: Racy Intrigue Anyone?
My very first dip into romance came when I gave romantic suspense a try as a teenager. I was bored with my usual fare so I complained to my mom that I was ready for more mature reading, but please lord, was there something besides those romances with the swooning woman and constipated looking men on the covers (I wouldn’t be caught dead reading that mushy stuff back then and now I adore it all). She grinned with a knowing smile (mom knew me well and still does) as she placed a copy of Phyllis A Whitney’s The Winter People in my hand and said, “Here! Let’s see how this one grabs you.”
Grab me it did. I lost lots of sleep that summer. I was hooked and still am. I don’t read it as much as I like it these days, but Romantic Suspense is still one of my favorite classifications of Romance. I have so many wonderful RS writers and series still to try.
Favorite Old School Writers:
Phyllis A. Whitney
Tiffany K. Snow
Tori St. Claire
Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban
