*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog linkup hosted by The Broke and The Bookish*
It’s Tuesday, folks, and you know what that means – another installment of the popular blog linkup “Top Ten Tuesday”. This week’s theme is author duos you’d love to see write a book together. I’m only going to go with 5 pairs because this is a lot harder than it seems lol. But, still, 5 pairs is 10 authors so I’m not really cheating, right? 😉
Why: I very rarely enjoy first person narratives but I do love the way both of these lovely authors use the technique. Also, they kinda look alike lol.
What kind of book: Since Varina Denman writes contemporary novels and Dawn Crandall writes historicals, I would love to see them do a dual timeline book together. I think this would be an incredible book, and I would be first in line to get a copy!
Why: In a word? DROOL. Both Pepper Basham and Carla Laureano write heroes that are so drool-worthy I often need alternate sources of oxygen while reading their novels. And their kissing scenes!! Whew!! (Varina and Dawn could totally hold their own in this department too!)
What kind of book: I don’t even care lol. The two of them writing drool-worthy heroes and sassy heroines to counter them would be enough to send me into a romantical oxygen-depleted fan-needing tizzy. I’m not sure I could survive the read … but what a way to go!!
Why: Both Deeanne Gist and Kristan Higgins have me giggling almost from word one, then swooning from the sheer romance of it all, then tearing up at a tender moment, then back to giggling some more… and mix & repeat.
What kind of book: I would love to read a contemporary romance written by these ladies. It would without a doubt be in turns hilarious, touching, and swoon-worthy. And it would be a guaranteed favorite!
Why: Lynette Eason and Irene Hannon are my two favorite authors of romantic suspense. Both write heart-stopping action, riveting suspense, and delicious romance.
What kind of book: Regency fiction. NO. Romantic suspense, of course! Although I’m quite positive that Lynette and Irene could both write a killer Regency romance (pun a happy accident there), I would first want them to collaborate on their trademarks. I have a feeling that nobody would be able to put a cowritten-by-them book down even for a nano-second!
Why: This is pretty self-explanatory but NOBODY created epic fantasy worlds like these two friends.
What kind of book: I know a collaboration is impossible now, this side of heaven, but I would have loved for Lewis & Tolkien to simply do what they did best.
What author duos would you love to see write a book together?
