Interviews & Essays

An Essay by Christy Reece

The written word is a powerful tool. By evoking strong emotions and memories that can stay with you forever, words can change hearts, minds and lives. I believe the romance genre accomplishes this better than any other. Romance inspires, enlightens and entertains, allowing readers to fall in love with characters as the characters fall in love with each other.

Romance not only stirs emotions of today, but can also bring back memories of yesterday. All those firsts that help you remember what it was like to fall in love. That first eye contact across a crowded room . . . that zing of attraction was unlike anything you'd ever felt before. In an instant, you knew something special was about to happen. The first kiss, first touch. The first time you heard his deep, masculine chuckle; the first time you saw her beautiful smile. All of those wonderful remembrances can be renewed and relived with each romance.

Writing is a passion for me; being a published author in the genre I love is a dream come true. Growing up in a household of women, we shared a multitude of things and one of those is the love of reading. My mother introduced me to reading at an early age and I devoured every book that came my way. I was in my early teens when I read my first romance. Instantly, I was drawn into a world filled with drama, passion and the rich fulfillment of finding that perfect love. The moment I closed the book, I was hooked.

Though I've read and enjoyed various genres through the years, romance kept calling me back. I love the optimism...the indomitable shared hope that there will be a better day. Each story has its own journey, but in the end, I am assured, there will behappiness. As the characters develop through the pages, fall in love, make mistakes and sometimes go through horrific circumstances, they experience a self-discovery and often find out they're much stronger and capable than they thought. And despite everything they've gone through, there's hope for the future because of their love for one another. Are tears shed along the way? Sometimes. But there's also laughter, joy and every other emotion that encompasses the human condition. There is triumph and hope; there is a happy ending. My goal is to entertain my readers. I want them to close my book with a smile on their face, uplifted and energized.

Romance novels empower and embolden. They make us realize the endless possibilities of life and whatever tragedies occur, we can overcome. Yes, romance novels are fictional, but at their core, they are grounded in reality. Love might not conquer all but can strengthen and help us to overcome and endure and look to a brighter tomorrow.

    I Also Recommend:

    No Chance...I recommend you "Chance It"!

    First off, this is my first experience with books by Christy Reece...but it will not be my last! I have already put her previous books on my wish list for my nook, and I have the release dates of the next 2 "Chance" books on my calendar. This book is one of those you start and then don't want to put down...it was easy to "get into" the story and stay there. The main characters are well developed, and I hope we get to follow up on how they are doing personally and professionally in the next books.
    I consider this book an "easy read", one that allows for a little escape time...perfect for a rainy day (or a sunny one). Enjoy!

    Another Winner by a Great Author

    This is another highly recommended read by Christy Reece. She is an auto buy for me. All of her books, including NO CHANCE, contain multi-dimensional characters, plots that keep you reading, and enough emotion and even humor to make a very nice balance. The whole idea of the Last Chance Rescue team makes a perfect backdrop for introducing amazing characters. Delving into their often traumatic pasts just adds to the drama. You don't have to read the three previous LCR books to completely understand where NO CHANCE begins, but those three earlier books are terrific reads. SECOND CHANCE, the next book in this particular trilogy, comes out in just a couple of weeks, and not a moment too soon!

    an exiting romantic suspense second chance at love tale

    On Kalamina Island in the South Pacific, Gabe Maddox and Skylar James met, apparently fell in love and married. However, happily ever after ended before it began as her wealthy father Jeremiah managed to split the couple. Their last exchange between them was Gabe's note of departure.

    Eight years later, when his beloved daughter is kidnapped, a desperate Jeremiah hires Last Chance Rescue unaware that Gabe is one of their operatives. Gabe takes charge of the mission in which Skylar was kidnapped trying to learn what happened to her best friend Kendra.

    The latest Last Chance Rescue (see Rescue me and Run to Me) is an exiting romantic suspense second chance at love, if they survive, thriller. Gabe hides his anger over feeling she betrayed him and desire behind a stoic do the job and move on mask; while Skylar remains frustrated that he left before she could return to him and worried over Kendra. With a several twists including a great late shocker, fans will root for this couple to rescue their hearts as well as their lives, but No Chance for the former and little chance for the latter.

    Can't wait for the next one!

    She has a great style of writing. All the characters are interesting with a lot of mystery about them. Only problem is she doesn't write fast enough. 8-) All of her books are winners in my book.

    No Chance

    This book was great. It kept my attention and I read it in less than a day.
    Gabe and Skylar fall in love when they are both at a resort escaping from their personal lives. Within two weeks they are married. Skylar goes home to tell her parents and it doesn't go well. Her father arranges for Gabe to look like he has committed suicide, leaving Skylar to grieve him for 8 years. Meanwhile, Gabriel thinks she doesn't love him, has abandoned him and he is very bitter.
    When Skylar is kidnapped, her father contacts an agency that finds missing persons, just so happens Gabe is their best man. When he finds out what has happened to Skylar her comes to her rescue.
    The story takes many twist and turns and has a plot you don't expect. Through it all Gabe fights his attraction to his wife and keeps her at a distance. At times he is cruel and you want to hate him....but you still love him at the same time as his character is so tortured over his past and the women he still loves.
    The ending is great and I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.

    Moderately amusing

    Cute but repetitive series. Author needs some different plot lines and more variety in descriptions of characters and depictions of sex scenes.
