Congratulations to all of the, I’m sure, worthy finalist in contention for the coveted awards. While I don’t have an author/reader relationship any but Madelynn Ellis, I can say she is an author of the highest caliber. Even if the reader might never have imagined being captivated by some of the genres she is the Mistress of- because the leads are created to be so real – the stories are so much more than sex. It’s not that simple. She is quite complex and offers a varied menu to her readers…her historicals are wonderful- her contemporaries written under a pen name are clever and amusing. I just love her style, whatever the genre- and she is a terrific lady as well.
