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.
She was Carey Winslow, New York’s most popular young socialite. He was Ron Norris, charming playboy, on the inside track to Carey’s heart. Then her father’s fortune crashed, and in the flash of a headline Carey tumbled from the gossip columns to obscurity on a small Southern farm. It looked as if a bleak future loomed for the dethroned debutante. But that was before lean, handsome Dr. Joel Hunter walked on to the scene.

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.
