Sizzling Book Club Chat: Scandal by Amanda Quick

Watch this space – at 9pm EST tonight, it will go live, and we’ll be discussing Amanda Quick’s Scandal with me, and special guest host Jane Litte from Dear Author. Plus, All Romance eBooks has set up some seriously fun giveaway shenanigans taking place all throughout the chat. I hope you’ll join us as we talk about this book, and the other old skool romances that remain ever worthy of a re-re-re-re-re-read.

See you tonight!

    I love Jayne Ann Krentz and all of her many personalities!  I just hit Borders today to pick up In Too Deep!  It’s the top of my TBR pile!

    I am so, so bummed I missed book club – but I had a blast reading it when I got home tonight.  Thanks for leaving it up!  I hope I can make the next one.  Meanwhile thanks for leaving “Love’s golden showers” permanently seared into my brain :)

    sense84:  I sense that I will miss book club 24 more times and every time I will cry great big tears into my latte.

    Ok, I’m so not a Smart Bitch – I get the email notices and apparently get them a day late – I thought the chat was tonight!  I just spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to join!  Duh!  I think I’ll have to start checking the site every morning for interesting stuff as the emails always get to me too late.  Sigh.  Oh well, at least I know what to do next time!

    I loved reading the book chat! I forgot to tune in last night, but enjoyed it just the same. I have all of Amanda Quick’s novels. Scandal was a favorite of mine. I thought it was interesting in the chat that people couldn’t believe a person could be so savvy with numbers and investments and so naive about people’s behavior. I have a friend who earned a doctorate in chemical engineering from MIT. He is brilliant with numbers and has served as our club’s treasurer for over ten years. Also, he writes all of our grants. When it comes to relating to humans, he is a complete dweeb and totally socially inept! So, go figure! Happy New Year!
    I have ordered the next chat book already!!

    sweetsiouxsie — I, too, was very surprised that readers saw any contradiction in Emily’s intellectual sophistication allied with emotional naivety.  The real-life example you cite is a very well-known type of personality, and much more extreme (and unchanging) than Emily, but everybody’s intellectual and emotional development proceeds at different rates and in different ways, and we are given ample background to enable us to understand easily why the heroine of Scandal is, at the point where we meet her, simultaneously a competent and hard-headed businesswoman and a dreamy, misty romantic.  But Emily’s emotional development catches up during the course of the story in any case; she requires only experience to get the hang of it.

    Hey folks: I am working on the ads that popped up during the chat – my apologies for that! I had no idea there were popup ads in the live stream. If you have any suggestions for an embedded chat program, let me know.

    I’ve announced the next book club pick: Karina Bliss’ “Here Comes the Groom,” and it’s lovely fun reading. I would venture to say it causes one to be washed on the warm baking sands of love’s splended shores of good reading bliss.
