First, introductions!  

Let me start off by saying hello.  I’m Lisa Marie Wilkinson, and I write award-winning historical romance novels.  My first book, “Fire at Midnight” is being released by Medallion Press on March 1, and my second historical romance, “Stolen Promise,” will be released in March 2010. 

I’ve been a writer for almost as long as I can remember, from writing bad poetry as a child to being a lyricist/music critic to writing very dry, boring technical material.  I’m an avid reader, too, and I enjoy many different genres, although I have to admit I’m partial to romance, particularly romances with bad-boy heroes and the women who tame them. 

My debut novel, “Fire at Midnight” currently holds the highest number of contest wins in the Romance Writers of America world of chapter contests.  I am officially a tiara-wearing Diva. 

I have a trailer for “Fire at Midnight.” Click on the link if you’d like to play it: Trailer for Fire at Midnight.

You may read excerpts from “Fire at Midnight” and advance reviewer comments on my website.

I also write book and film reviews on my blog, “The View from the Eddystone Light.”

Since I write romance, I thought a good ice-breaker for my first CTR blog might be to share a few of my favorite quotes about love and romance and ask you to either share your thoughts on the quotes or your own favorite quotes on the subject of love and romance.

Here we go!!

“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.” 

-Victor Hugo

“Immature love says:  ‘I love you because I need you. ‘Mature love says ‘I need you because I love you.'”

–Erich Fromm

“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:  That word is love.”


“He who love touches walks not in darkness.”


“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

–Emily Bronte

”Love is… born with the pleasure of looking at each other; it is fed with the necessity of seeing each other; it is concluded with the impossibility of separation!´



“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”

–Charlie Brown

 Your turn!  Please leave a comment!
