Kathleen E. Woodiwiss has always been the pinacle of historical romance, as far as I am concerned. When I was a teenager and young adult, her stories were what I lived for. In fact, my first born was named after her epic novel "Shanna". My style of writing in Love's Vengeance was very much influenced by her and I have had gotten feedback regarding the similairities.
In Out of the Past, although the story is contemporary and more simple and modern language, I was able to give another nod to Ms. Woodiwiss in the story, which is unique. It was thrilling to be able to weave the story in such a way to be able to do so.
