Author spotlight with Victoria Vane

by Victoria Vane Genres: Romance WELCOME VICTORIA! It’s truly a pleasure to have you on the blog talking about your newest book and getting to know more about you. Let’s dive into some questions… What made you start writing romance? My writing career began in 2010 with the publication of a huge novel (548 published pages) called THE HIGHEST STAKES, a story of star-crossed lovers and horse racing set in the 18th century.

Rating System Explanation

5 Stars

Five stars are like six-pack abs on a really tan, hunky guy not wearing much. They make us drool, we stroke them (the books, not the guys! - sometimes the guys...) and want to make sweet, sweet love to them. Five stars is the hottest, we mean, highest honor.


4 Stars

Four stars is a total hunkalicious of burning love, but maybe we didn't like his hair for some reason. We still think he's hot, and we're still going to recommend him, we mean, the book, to readers because it's a damn fine ass, we mean book.


3 Stars

Three stars = that awkward guy at the party. He's cute and you know he's cute, and if you look at him the right way, he even looks like Brad Pitt a little, but there are flaws. Surprisingly, he's good in bed (because you got drunk and shit happens).


2 Stars

Remember that - yeah we don't either.


1 Stars

One star is like expecting a somewhat attractive guy and being sent a Grumpy cat meme. We appreciate the effort, but no. This book was not for us. Grumpy cat might want to use it for litter though.
