Take a Chance on Romance?


As both a reader and an author, I’ve become a huge fan of romance boxed sets and anthologies in the last couple of years.

I’ve always loved romance series, but anthologies and boxed sets are a bit like a decadent box of chocolate covered nuts and chews; each a little different, but still yummy!

Passionate+Promises+2D+CoverGroup sets are inexpensive, often selling for less than a buck, and even if I don’t like or read all the stories, I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my money.

The reads are usually themed-based, so I know what I’m getting. I particularly like the sets that have indexes, mini story blurbs,andPostcard heat ratings in the beginning, because I don’t read erotica.

I read really fast, which means,even with my increasingly limited reading time, I can zip through a story and feel the satisfaction of a happily-ever-after.

I’ve discovered some amazing authors, many of whom have become auto-buys for me via sets.  When I find an author I like, I’m rather like a barnacle on a ship–hard to pry loose!

I mentioned the cost above, but really, think about the bargain.

Six, eight, ten, or more stories for around a dollar?

Even if I pay a bit more, that’s a steal, because most of the stories are also available as stand-alones too. I have a novella priced at 99¢ that was part of a set of eight books for the same price.

I love to gift them to friends, family, and readers too.

As an author, I have been involved in seveb group projects (some free and others for sale) and am slated for a couple more. Working with other authors is a fabulous opportunity to get to know them really well, build relationships, and develop long-standing friendships. Each brings a different skill-set to the table, but I have found their willingness to share their knowledge and support the other authors in the group is invaluable.

Once Upon a True Love’s Kiss is a wonderful set of eight tantalizing kiss and tell Regency romances by bestselling, award-winning authors that releases January 4, 2016 but is available for pre-order now.

    I love boxed sets and anthologies for two reasons. One, I get to try out new authors, and two, the stories are usually short reads. (I’ve become impatient lately and want my HEAs to happen faster!) Oh, and who can object to the price? So that’s three reasons. 😉
