“Good Read with Memorable Characters”

I’m excited to be writing for Boroughs Publishing Group. My experience with them has been such a positive experience. They are so knowledgeable about the editing and publishing phases of putting out a great novel. When I was in my early twenties I noticed that my grandmother spent her spare time reading romance novels, I asked her why she had chosen the genre. At the time my grandfather was dying of cancer. She told me that the novels helped… “It’s amazing what kind of knowledge a girl can glean in a bathroom” Katherine, or Kat as her friends know her, has the habit of heading for the nearest bathroom when she gets the jitters. And she definitely has the jitters as she waits to bid on the bachelor of her choice in the celebrity Make-A-Wish Foundation Auction. To make matters worse, the hunk she’s bidding on is her ex-husband, a man that if looks could kill, would have already rendered her the victim of his rapier gaze. Why is Kat bidding for a week of her ex-husband’s time? Well now, if I told you that, I’d spoil the fun this story is sure to give its readers. Kat and Michael are a unique pair that I felt immediately drawn too. Author Lyn Austin shapes her characters with loving care, honest emotions, and real needs that make them more than just names on the pages of a book. While the story is on the short side, it’s fully developed and the author doesn’t rush the resolution of their problems. This is another story I’d recommend adding to your reading list. Just finished “The Auction” and I loved being taken to Park City for a romantic adventure! It’s great to live in the world a book takes you to. It was easy to feel the emotions of both Michael and Kat. It was easy to fall in love with them as they fell back in love with each other. Enough intrigue from one situation to another to keep your interest and turning page after page realizing you’re still reading @ 2am. Looking forward to more books from Lyn.
