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!

Fiona took a deep breath, and then wished she hadn’t. Byron even smelled good, like starched linen and manly soap. She didn’t like English earls. In fact, she didn’t like Englishmen in general. This one was distracting her from her book. He made her…he made her think about things she had given up… Men, for example.

Just applied to be an AvonAddict! I’ve been reading romances from Avon exclusively since I was in middle school (when it’s not broke, don’t fix it amiright?) so I’d say I’m pretty qualified to say what a good romance looks like.

And I write my own but they’re not published yet because, well,…

Good luck!!

"The dowager’s bosom rose slightly into the air, resembling a balloon ascension Olivia had once seen in Hyde Park. "I was referring not to your birth,” the duchess said, biting the words with frigid disdain, “but to your manners."

~ Eloisa James, The Duke is Mine ~

I want morning and noon and nightfall with you. I want your tears, your smiles, your kisses…the smell of your hair, the taste of your skin, the touch of your breath on my face. I want to see you in the final hour of my life…to lie in your arms as I take my last breath.

Lisa Kleypas: Again the Magic (via ileana1009)

She would defend herself, saying that love, no matter what else it might be, was a natural talent. She would say: You are either born knowing how, or you never know.
