Back before Janet Evanovich was rich and famous, she confesses to having written a series of romance novels. Since two of them showed up on the Giveaway Table at a gathering, I scooped them up to see what they were like. Anything with Janet’s name on it is well written – and pretty funny.
My experience with romance novels is heavy breathing, powerless women, intensity and drama. With that criteria, Wife for Hire and Smitten do not qualify. They both have the boy / girl thing going on, and a little heavy breathing, but they also had me lol. And these heroines are sure not powerless.
Each story is well put together, with fun characters and believable situations – as Janet does so well. And her soon-to-be-totally-sure touch is in evidence.
I think we need a whole new category.
