Michelle Sagara, is under the Luna Imprint.
Start your day with Yahoo! - make it your home page
- Mercedes Lackey has published at least one title under this imprint,
called The Fairy Godmother. I quite enjoyed the title as a more
light-hearted fantasy with a familiar plot line and suggested
romance all combined with Lackey's known literary talent.
It seems she has taken a step further and is about to publish a
title for Harlequin called One Good Knight.
I think for some, this is a logical step. For those of you who
don't know, the most popular themes of romantic novels are
historical or quasi-historical settings. Romance in modern times
just isn't as... romantic? Therefore, to set a romance plot into a
fantasy world seems as natural as peanut butter and jelly.
Not all of us like our sci-fi hard and our fantasy thick with epic
battles, some of us like a little human interest too.
However, that being said, I'm sure, like most genres, there is going
to be a lot of books that shouldn't have been published and we'll
find ourselves wondering why...
In general, I think it's an opportunity for fantasy readers to find
more romance and romance readers to broaden their horizons.
It's a good thing! (Remember, you don't have to read it. :) )
