I especially love historical and contemporary romances, along with romantic suspense. See all of Dawn’s #MSWL tweets here.  Continue reading

What do you wish you had in your inbox?: I’m eager for all kinds of thrillers and suspense novels, but especially science-based (a la Michael Crichton) and military, and I’d like to see a thriller featuring a female hacker. I’m also interested in repping a gritty procedural series, like those by Peter Robinson or Michael … Continue reading

I love YA, NA, and adult contemporary romance, category romance, and romantic thrillers. Stories driven by tropes (enemies to lovers, mistaken identity, forced proximity, etc.) with fun and/or unexpected meet-cutes and swoonworthy heroes shoot straight to the top of my slush pile. As for heat level, I only acquire steamy adult romance, but sweet YA … Continue reading
