In an Oyster Shell – A toe-curling romance that will have you swooning.
The Pearls –The concept was unique. Getting a hotel maid to act as your bridesmaid. It’s a rags to riches stories. Though the character doesn’t necessarily get riches though she gets to pretend at least for a weekend. It was a cute concept that was well executed.
The romance was slow burning but sizzling hot. The relationship between the two main characters was palpable. There were some really sweet moments between the couple. The tension was intense throughout the story.
The side stories made for a more enriching tale. There was lots of little sub-plots that filled out the story nicely. The characters played their roles nicely.
The Sand –There was some erotic language that took away from the sweetness of the romance.
Madelle completed four novels before Ellora’s Cave Publishing Inc. contracted to publish her debut romantic suspense, Diamond Lust—republished as Diamond Hunter—and a sexy, short free read, The Next Big Thing, in 2010.
When Madelle realized her author voice is more suited to light, humorous contemporary romance, she went waaaay back to her teen years for the Hollywood in Muskoka series setting. Madelle, her sisters, and assorted pets enjoyed idyllic summers at a lake in the District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of their top 20 Best of the World Must-see Places.
The Muskoka lakes’ forested shorelines are dotted with palatial properties owned by wealthy families and Hollywood celebrities. At sixteen, being neither rich nor famous, Madelle worked briefly as a chambermaid at the now-closed Delawana Inn, a local resort.
Madelle is retired from an engineering career in the federal public service and lives in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, with her husband. She tries to keep fit with cycling, Pilates, and yoga, and dreams of owning a waterfront cottage. Or at least a pool.
She tweets and posts on Facebook and Goodreads about Hollywood, filmmaking, Muskoka, and, of course, writing. She blogs the second Tuesday of the month at romancingthegenres.blogspot.com and occasionally on her own website.
