The Mistress of Saucy Historical Romances

Squeeeeeeeeeee!

Sorry for the high-pitched squeal, but I just have to share the latest review of STROKE OF GENIUS from Books Monthly:

"Georgette Heyer with ripped bodices! Emily's latest story is simply charming - Crispin Hawke is awkward, dashing, self-assured, rude, everything you'd expect from Georgette Heyer, or even Jane Austen. Grace Makepeace, unlike the previous heroines in Emily's novels, is American. She's tall, beautiful, and knows what she wants. But she falls for Hawke in a big way and decides that she wants him above everything else. Emily Bryan is the mistress of saucy historical romances, and as ever, STROKE OF GENIUS is pure delight." BooksMonthly!


OMGosh! Did he just compare me to Heyer and Austen? I do believe I feel a case of the vapors coming on.

This totally made my day!

Hugs all around!

Gillian, Chelley, & Mitzi--Thanks for sharing my joy. There's such a sense of validation when a reviewer gets my work.

I just finished Stroke of Genius last night (very late last night), and the final scene made me cry! It was beautiful! And that's on top of all the fun plot twists and fan-yourself sensuality... Love it!

EmilyBryan said...

Oh, Nynke! Sorry to make you cry (and yet it was part of my evil plan!) and keeping you up very late was very naughty of me (again,--insert evil laughter here-- part of my plan!) but I'm so glad you loved STROKE OF GENIUS.

Your words of praise gave me glory-bumps! If you have a minute, could you please post your thoughts at Amazon? It always helps to have customer reviews. Thanks so much!
