Spotlight+ #Giveaway: MK Meredith's Seducing the Tycoon

Top 5 Romance Authors from My Youth

Hello there romance lovers! My name is MK Meredith and I write an emotional ride on heated sheets. I love all the feels and All. The. Feels. Heehee…
I was asked to share my top 5 authors, so I decided to share my top 5 authors from when I was purely a reader. Way back in the day before I became an author myself.

I will admit, that this list will date me a bit. But I’m okay with that. LOL!

Though I write contemporary romance, my very favorite romance to read is historical. I always feel like I was meant to live back in the time of the Ton as an independent woman changing our status in the world…but only if I had money. Living back then without money seemed horrible to say the least—aside from a rich, sexy hero falling helplessly in love with you. Ha!

Here are the authors that kept me dreaming.

5. Karen Robards ~ I adore Ms. Robards’ historicals, her contemporaries are amazing as well, but like I said…historical fan over here. I love how spunky her heroines are. They are the ladies I’d want as my best friends.

4. Nora Roberts ~ Ms. Nora weaves a great story that makes the simplest life tasks seem interesting. That’s a very cool super power to have. And I loved her destination books…Ireland, Italy, wherever…didn’t matter. Take me there!

3. Jude Deveraux ~ Ms. Jude is one of my historical writers who made me fall in LOVE with the Ton. Oh! The decadence. The idea of attending a grand ball and having some huge, dark, and stunning hero put his name on my dance card…and scratch all the others out…makes my heart a pitter patter. LOL! I love the romance of it all!

2. Susan Johnson ~ Oh, now…Ms. Susan taught me a lot, and I mean A LOT! I had never imagined the things one could do with marzipan strawberries, wine corks, or ice cubes. But whew! I learned fast! LOL!

1. Johanna Lindsey ~ Ms. Johanna made me fall head-over-girl-parts in love with Vikings. I blazed through her Haardrad Family series (from waaaaay back in the early 80’s). Romance has changes A LOT since these books were written, but they will always have a special place in my heart.

So, I know this list, at least the books I thought of while writing this list, takes us waaaay back, earlier than some of you may have been born. But they’re authors who have always stayed with me…and who make it very difficult to pass up at a book store!

Oh, and I have to mention my very first romance author. I had picked up Virginia Henley when I was about 11 years old…I haven’t set romances down, since.
I met her back in 2005, and when she found out I read her at such an early age, she was scandalized! LOL! Oooops. #sorrynotsorry

I loved every happy ever after!

And still do!

Hugs, loves, and peanut butter!

About the Book:

He’ll play dirty to protect his assets—but falling for the competition was never the plan.

International tycoon Drago De Luca has the world at his feet and he knows it. But back home in Italy, his beloved grandmother’s family inn is on the verge of closing down for good, thanks to hotshot American heiress, Chase Huntington, and her new hotel. Drago has to protect Nonna’s inn, even if it means getting close enough to Chase to convince her she needs to leave. But the more time he spends with Chase, the more he’s drawn to her passion, her love of his culture, and the way she looks in those Louis Vuitton heels.

Chase Huntington would give anything to enjoy her time with charming, sexy-as-hell Drago in the style capital of the world, but she has to make sure the new Huntington hotel opens successfully. How else can she prove she’s not just fashionista with a fortune—she’s an heiress savvy enough to take over the family’s biggest hotel back in California? But somewhere between boutiques and business plans, she falls head over Louboutins for Drago. But when Drago’s true motive for spending so much time with her comes to light, it could destroy everything Chase built and everything she thought she found in Italy.
