I first met Leanne during really bad circumstances. It was back in the days when I wrote fanfiction and someone took one of Leanne's books, changed the character names and posted it as her own story. Everyone was ooohing and aaahing over this woman's skill as a writer. And then... someone recognized the book and said it was a romance novel. I was tasked with finding a copy so we could make sure before we screamed plagiarism. Sadly, this woman had copied almost word for word. But on the bright side, I discovered romance novels and Leanne. After I finished that book, I went back to the used book store and hunted down Leanne's back list.
So please scoot over and make room on the swingset for NY Times bestselling author Leanne Banks.
Ever want to be a princess?
I grew up on Disney, so I did. I was the youngest of three daughters, however, so that slot was filled long before I was born.
While writing my first Silhouette Special Edition in ten years, I got the chance to write about a princess. She’s way different than the traditional fairy tale princess. She’s over worked with no life and no handsome prince in sight unless you count her cranky brother.
She’s always been the one to fill the gaps and she’s made sure not to cause any scandals. When she gets an opportunity to take a break from being a princess, she does it in a big way and gets pregnant by a Texas rancher.
I hope you’ll give ROYAL HOLIDAY BABY a try. You can purchase it in bookstores and there’s a 35% discount at Walmart. You can also get it online, of course. I’m giving away a copy of one of my previous titles to one commenter, so join in!
Here are my questions:
Have you ever wanted to be a princess?
What do you think would be the best part of being a princess? The tiara? The prince? Or the staff?
What do you think would be the worst part.
