ELOISA JAMES

I write romances--21 New York Times bestsellers, highest position #5 (tied for #4, but who's counting?). My latest novel is Three Weeks with Lady X. I'm a Shakespeare professor in real life. Curious about romance or the business of writing? Ask me something!

 V&A :

Octagonal tea caddy decorated with rolled paperwork, in a protective cardboard box with lid covered with block-printed floral wall-paper; 1800-1820.

Such fresh colors! Most paper filigree from this period has faded with sunlight and age. The box has kept this one pristine.

Gorgeous!   High-res

I love you. I love every part of you, every thought and word…the entire complex, fascinating bundle of all the things you are. I want you with ten different kinds of need at once. I love all the seasons of you, the way you are now, the thought of how much more beautiful you’ll be in the decades to come. I love you for being the answer to every question my heart could ask.

I cannot recommend Jennifer Cruisie enough, especially “Welcome to Temptation”, “Faking It”, and “Bet Me”. She was my gateway drug into the romance genre.
