Just because Adda Sinclaire writes best-selling romances doesn't mean she lives one! Adda can't shake the feeling that something's missing from her life---not her ex-husband, who ran off with another author and took their dog with him. And not a current beau. It couldn't be Jesus---or could it? 416 pages, softcover from NavPress.
Bestselling romance author Adda Sinclaire has writer's block. Just when she catches her breath-and quite possibly the eye of a certain fabulously good-looking man--her arch-nemesis gives the pot one final stir.
Since 1994, TAMARA LEIGH has been writing nationally best selling, award-winning historical romances, including Warrior Bride , Unforgotten, Misbegotten Saxon Bride , Pagan Bride , and Virgin Bride . Her most recent release, Blackheart , made the USA Today Best-seller List. Stealing Adda is her first book with NavPress.
Romance writer Leigh (Blackheart) makes her debut in the Christian market with this tale based at least partly on her life experience. Adda Sinclaire is a bestselling romance novelist with a case of writers block and a lingering interest in Christianity. Like most chick-lit heroines, she has a knack for ridiculous situations, whether thats pulling out a clump of her nemesiss hair or sticking her tongue out at a good-looking guy across a restaurant (who turns out to be the publisher trying to acquire her next book). If at times unbelievable, the plot moves quickly and will draw readers in. Nick, the good-looking publisher, becomes Addas love interest (although technically their relationship is strictly business). Stick Woman, her archenemy, accuses Adda of plagiarizing one of her books, forcing Adda into hiding. Add a dose of family conflict, an insistent would-be lover and a supporting cast of several characters who happen to be Christian, and you have the makings of compelling inspirational romance. Traditional romance readers may also be attracted to this title Addas investigation of Christianity, if a bit forced, plays a supporting role, and readers are never browbeaten. And if the conclusion is primarily about the improvement of Addas character, Leigh also fulfills her readers expectations of the romance genre. Copyright 2006 Publishers Weekly
