Vintage sexy: try Violet Winspear

If anyone feels like some classic, sexy vintage romance, try Violet Winspear who wrote 70 romance novels in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

You’ll find plenty of power play, age-gap, virginal heroines, coerced marriage and Alpha male themes, with heroes who are, in the author’s own words: 

“…lean and hard muscled and mocking and sardonic and tough and tigerish and single, of course. Oh and they’ve got to be rich and then I make it that they’re only cynical and smooth on the surface. But underneath they’re well, you know, sort of lost and lonely. In need of love but, when roused, capable of breathtaking passion and potency.”

Grab the paperbacks on Abebooks for some retro romantic fun, or try one of the re-released Harlequin Comic versions for Kindle.
