As Crimson Romance celebrates its first anniversary, we honor those pioneers who helped shape the direction of romance novels for all of us. Suspense, mystery, paranormal activity and love—always love—have been the cornerstone of the genre since the early 1970s. Now we have updated the covers to these classics–but not the words—and reissued these timeless reads to let you relive the thrill of discovering a world of romance all over again.
Lovely chestnut-haired Lynn Carter refused to be impressed by Wayde McCuller’s wealth and darkly handsome looks. She thought him a snob and resented his scorn for the hometown she loved. Yet somehow Lynn found it impossible to avoid constant encounters with the arrogantly charming young man. And when the town was rocked by a shocking incident that left Wayde in serious trouble, Lynn felt compelled to rush to the defense of the man she’d thought she hated. Could it be that her anger toward Wayde masked deep feelings of love? Was she headed for happiness—or heartbreak?
Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors
Eroline Pearl Gaddis Dern (1895 – 1966) began her literary career editing trade journals and fan magazines. For thirty years she wrote traditional romances for a single publisher, Arcadia House. For the last ten of those years she wrote principally nurse novels. She also wrote “love novels,” a romance genre invented by lending-library publishers that was considered a bit racier for the times.
