Rachel Rossano

Biography

I have loved the written word from the moment my mother first sat down to read me a story. A well woven story is a joy to read and leaves the reader with a sense of completion, yet wanting more. That is what I am striving for in my work.

I am a wife with young children who need constant attention. Currently I spend my days happily chasing little ones, changing diapers, and filling tummies. Writing and editing fit in the spaces but are never far from my thoughts.

  • Redemption on April 18, 2011

    Jaimey Grant’s "Redemption" thrills the emotions. Her main character grabbed my interest from the first page. Dare, Darius Prestwich, is a rogue with an almost invisible honorable streak. The heroine, Lady Genevieve Northwicke, or Jenny, was not as colorful, but she caught my interest and held it. Above all she appears to be a good fit for Dare. Both characters made some choices that surprised and shocked me. It took me a while to process some of the off-page behavior. I was forewarned, though, that Ms. Grant’s fiction tends toward the rougher side of Regency fare. The plot moved like a runaway phaeton, sweeping the reader along behind barely controlled horseflesh. Don’t expect much opportunity to observe the scenery. I never lost interest as I eagerly plunged onward. I particularly enjoyed the supporting cast and the biting and quick dialogue that filled the novel’s pages. All the characters and their interactions made me eager to meet them again. Also, Grant’s descriptions delighted me. I found myself highlighting sentences just so I could revisit my favorites again. Overall, "Redemption" is an exciting and engaging read. I enjoyed it and I am looking forward to reading my next acquisition by her, "Deception."
