Day 27 of the 31 Days of Books Giveaway: What’s Your Favorite Romance Novel World?
January 27th, 2014

Congratulations to Gail, who won yesterday’s drawing! I’ll be emailing Gail to arrange delivery of her choice of book.

Let’s talk about our favorite worlds. One of the reasons we read books is to be transported to a different place, whether that place is a different era, a different lifestyle or a different world/planet all together. When we are brought to a different place in our minds, we are able to—at least for a short while—forget our own problems.

What are some of your favorite worlds?

For me, I adore the Celta world created by Robin D. Owens (not just because her cats can communicate telepathically) and the Harmony world created by Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz). I also really love the futuristic world of J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas. That world seems just a few steps removed from ours.

In Eve’s world, the technology seems like something that would really be available in our near future, yet the cops still love doughnuts and people still fall in love and have kids just like they do today. She’s come up with policies that might someday exist, like legal “licensed companions” and “professional mothers.” Race is nothing more than a way to describe someone’s appearance, and people can have all kinds of work done along the lines of cosmetic surgery to change anything at all about their appearance, even eye color. Yet there are still murderers and drug addicts and fast cars and people without morals. I absolutely adore this world, and not just because a man like Roarke can exist there. Which makes me wonder…they have cloning technology, right? <G>

What about you? What are your favorite worlds in the books you read? Comment to be included in a drawing to win a paperback title from my backlist!

    I adore and addicted with Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar world. I wish I could live there permanently. The companions, shin’a’in and hawk brothers. The world is so rich.

    I also love fearun – Forgotten realms / wizard of the coast. But them I love elves especially drows

  3. I haven’t been there for a while, but BN100 is right – the Black Dagger Brotherhood world is great. I also love Tessa Dare’s Spinster Cove world. Regency romances with funny characters always make me happy. I won your To Ruin the Duke this month, and I’m putting it on my blog on Wednesday – one of the worlds I love! I sooo enjoyed this book! Thanks, Deb! 🙂

    I have lots of favorites I love to read about. I’m going to go with my favorite romance world that I’d actually want to live in, and that’s Janet Chapman’s Highlander/Midnight Bay/Spellbound Fall world.
