Earlier this year, Leigh blogged about liking lighter romance. I enjoyed her piece and it got me thinking about my own views on tone in the books I prefer to read. I certainly don’t mind humorous romance or laugh out loud slapstick in the least. The book within a book from What Happens in London is one of my romance reading highlights! However, I have a soft spot for the dark and angsty, or at least the dramatic and serious, and many books on my keeper shelf feature heroes and heroines who really had to work for that happy ending.

When readers think of emotional reads, Karen Ranney’s name is often mentioned. She even did a piece here at AAR on the two-hanky read. Karen Ranney’s latest book, A Scotsman in Love, has just been released by Avon. If you’d like a chance to win it, along with a copy of The Devil Wears Tartan and signed bookplates, just comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, May 7, 2009.
