Authors Samanthe Beck and Robin Bielman Dish on Their Favorite Writing Duos
If you haven't heard...we love books here at Women.com.
Authors, Samanthe Beck and Robin Bielman were kind enough to share their absolute favorite writing duos within the romance genre. If you don't know what to read next, take a look at their suggestions.
Samanthe & Robin's Recommendations
We love to read romance. Robin reads everywhere—couch, bed, beach, with her toes in the sand. Basically anywhere. Sam reads while driving. (Long red lights in LA). That love of romance is what started our desire to write books with uplifting, happy endings. We also loved writing a book together! Did we face challenges? Yes. But there's something very special and meaningful about sharing words with someone whose individual books you already admire.
The idea to co-write a book came naturally, and we couldn't wait to dive in, hoping we'd capture some of the magic that other writing teams have made look easy. Who are some of those duos we hold in high regard? Let us tell you…
1. Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen
Him is one of those rare books you can read again and again. The heroes capture your heart and hold on. Jamie and Wesley are so richly drawn that the reader feels everything they do. Elle and Sarina's WAGs series is also a must read.
2. Christina Lauren
Every book written by these ladies is sexy, funny, touching, romantic, and relatable on some level. We fall in love with their heroes and want to be best friends with their heroines.
3. Taryn Elliott and Cari Quinn
The Lost in Oblivion collection is addictive, binge-worthy rock star romance turbo fueled on sex, drugs, rock & roll, and HEA! You will revisit these stories like favorite songs.
4. Lauren Hawkeye and Cathryn Fox
Like Elle and Sarina, these two ladies are NY Times Bestsellers in their own right, but they joined forces to produce a truly amazing time-travel, lumberjack romance called Wood. It is magnificently creative, and sublime in every detail. We "wood" love more…a series PLEASE!!!
About the Authors
When not attached to her laptop, USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Bielman can almost always be found with her nose in a book. A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can't live without jumpstarts all of her story ideas. She is a 2014 RITA Finalist, loves to frequent coffee shops, and plays a mean game of sock tug of war with her cute, but sometimes naughty dog, Harry. She cherishes her family and friends and loves to connect with readers.
Samanthe Beck lives in Malibu, California with her husband, their young son, a furry ninja named Kitty, and Bebe the trash talkin' Chihuahua. When not writing fun, contemporary, melt-your-Kindle sexy romances for Entangled Publishing's Brazen imprint, she searches for the perfect cabernet to pair with Ambien.
About Promise Me
Instead of soaking up the SoCal sunshine while house-sitting for my aunt, I'm dealing with a Pomeranian who thinks she's a pit bull, two half sisters who would happily prune me off the family tree, and him. Vaughn Shaughnessy. Hot model about to go nuclear, dangerously sexy flirt whose perceptive green eyes promise he's more than just a pretty face. He's the kind of walking, talking temptation I should avoid, but that's impossible because he also happens to be my extremely lickable—I mean likable—neighbor.
He's turning me into a hot mess.
Thing is, I can't handle more messes in my life. I'm still trying to come to terms with the monumental ones in my past, and getting involved with Vaughn—even for temporary summer fun—is guaranteed to get messy. I don't dare risk it, but I'm not sure I can resist…
