Romancing the Novel

While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.

The Black Hawk - Joanna Bourne What an amazing series this has turned out to be. I do not think that I am able to point out a favorite, they are all my favorites! Well, maybe Doyle and Maggie's story, The Forbidden Rose but then, that wouldn't be fair to the others :) This will be my desert island series. Honestly, I could not be stranded on a desert island without this series. I read this series in publication order. The author states: "If you read the books in the order in which they were written, you're going to see the characters develop as they did in my own mind. You'll find out about them in the way I found out about them."
That worked very well for me. TFR would be read first in chronological order, but the H, Doyle is in all of the books and I loved reading his story after getting glimpses of him that made me quite curious to get to know him better.
This book, The Black Hawk, is Adrian (Hawk) and Justine's story. Hawk has also been in all the books and we watch him grow up. This book goes back and forth from when they first met to the current situation they find themselves in. I am not always a fan of that type of writing, but it worked in this book. This story really starts in TFR as that is where he first meets Justine.
I HIGHLY recommend this series, it is not to be missed!
