I'm always intrigued by the first-meet stories of married couples I know personally, and I was curious to learn how authors who make a career of writing about romance have experienced it in their own lives.
I was happy to discover that many of these authors go beyond simply describing how they met their husbands, expanding their narrative into highlights of their courtships. I also found it a fascinating coincidence that most of the authors in this collection knew their husbands for many years before marrying them--unlike typical romance heroes and heroines who tend to marry precipitously. In addition, many of these authors have been in very long, happy marriages, ranging from 19-45 years, which is quite inspiring, and very like the happily ever after that romance novels offer their readers.
After the authors' individual narratives, each provides an excerpt from of one of her most recent published books, and these novels represent a wide variety of subgenres of romance fiction, such as: historical, contemporary, comedy, erotica, paranormal and Christian. There is something here for almost every taste in romance.
I am rating this ebook as to how effective it is in promoting the authors participating in it. As a fan of the romance genre always looking for new authors to read, I believe that these authors have done a good job achieving their intended objective in promoting their work.
In a brilliant (and FREE on Amazon) promotional tool, these romance authors all tell readers how they met their husbands, (ergo the title...) and then they share the cover and an excerpt from one of their books. Great idea, right? The excerpts are sure to whet your appetite and are guaranteed to add a few more books to your TBR list.
Four and a half stars.
I found myself connecting with the authors as some of them also went through marriage situations like my own. I couldn't help but wonder if the place they mentioned was the one nearby and smiled when they realized that the guy that they knew as a friend, turned out to be true love.
The only drawback was the formatting was a little off which led to some issues with my reader. It didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the story but I wanted you to be aware.
If you are looking for a sweet read with a twist, this is the story for you.
All of the stories are followed by an excerpt, summary, or both from the author's work. Some have short biographies. There is a very wide variety in book types - contempory, historical, western, regency, comedy, paranormal, inspirational, erotica, etc.
I downloaded the book because I was interested in the true narratives. I only read a few of the excerpts. The book intends to promote interest in the authors' work. At first I didn't think it would work that way for me, but it actually did. I looked up more information on two of the authors and added two books to my wish list.
It is worth reading just for the true stories. If one of the samples piques your interest then the book has met it's goal.
