Snow-Kissed, a Romance Novels for Feminists Best of 2013: What are yours?

Snow-Kissed, a Romance Novels for Feminists Best of 2013: What are yours?

A big thank you to Jackie at Romance Novels for Feminists for honoring SNOW-KISSED as one of her Best Books of 2013. I really love Jackie’s scholarly and insightful look into texts, and so it’s a true honor to have another book chosen by her. (Last year it was THE CHOCOLATE KISS, which confused people about its year of release by being released Dec 24 — technically in December and officially, by¬†publishing world terms, a “2013 release”.) I think most of you will agree that THE CHOCOLATE KISS and SNOW-KISSED are very different books!¬†

It’s also very interesting to me, because I don’t really try to write books that are feminist or not feminist, just imagine people interacting with each other (usually one vivid scene between two people starts me working on a book).

Here’s what Romance Novels for Feminists says in explaining the choice: “Florand has a true gift for penning romances with all the characteristics of gourmet chocolate: rich (emotionally), sweet but subtle, all often underlaid with a surprisingly strong bite of the unexpected. I thoroughly enjoyed all three of the full-length Paris-set romances she published this past year. But my top pick would have to be her novella, Snow-Kissed, which tells of an estranged wife and husband who struggle through their anger, passion, and grief in the wake of a series of devastating miscarriages to somehow find the courage to risk themselves one more time for love.”

Thank you so much, Jackie!

What about you? Have you read any of the other books on her list? There are some I’ve recommended to readers myself and some I am now interested to read. Are there any other books you would add to this list for the ways they explore a woman’s heart or life?
