So, Stephanie's latest book is out - One Final Step. And in it she tackles some serious serious taboo subjects. Our heroine was the other woman in a presidential cheating scandal years ago and our hero has a past with ramifications that I'm not going to spoil for anyone - because it's so so so worth letting it all unfold as you read it.
I like talking about writers that subvert romance conventions - and I think Stephanie is tearing up sacred ground left right and center - which is difficult in romance but she's that she's doing it in category romance where the conventions seem more like laws just kills me. KILLS ME! I can't believe what she gets away with. I couldn't kill a dog in Superromance, and she's ...well, you have to read the books.
I am inspired by what Stephanie is doing, I am literally stealing things from her as she writes them. In her next book she takes on the secret baby trope and she's just killing it.
I want to be like Stephanie when I grow up!
