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.
One ambition burned in Fanny Hastings’ heart—to be an actress. Possessed of beauty, talent and determination, she intended to let nothing and no one stand in the way of her career.
Though she gave her body willingly, Fanny refused to surrender her freedom. Sought by a Maharaiah as his concubine, pursued by a Viscount, adored by a handsome young actor, she rejected them all in favor of her public’s adulation.
But Fanny found that, no matter how hard she tried, she could not control her emotions; just when success was within her grasp, her wayward passions drew her into a sequence of events that threatened to destroy both her career and one man she couldn’t forget.
