Get To Know Regina:
What was one of the first romance novels you ever read? My first exposure to romance novels was a little unconventional. At my "sweet 16" birthday party, one of my good friends gifted me with the first four books in the Anita Blake series -- Guilty Pleasures, and everything about Anita and Jean-Claude's pas de deux, blew my mind. I loved seeing this combative, strong but wounded heroine holding her own against an array of supernaturally powerful enemies. (Appropriately, the same friend who introduced me to the Anita series also took me to my first Lady Jane's Salon reading in NYC!)
Which fictional hero would you love to go on a date with? My younger self is crying out for me to choose the classics: either Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice) or Professor Bhaer (Little Women, but think Gabriel Byrne taking Jo to the opera) but in recent years, I would have to say Renard from Susan Carroll's The Dark Queen -- I have a weakness for discerning heroes who manage to challenge and respect their heroines.
