What's Your Favorite Setting For a Romance ?


First of all, we here at Sanctuary's Finest would like to send a big thank you to all of you who have participated in our mini poll which is located on the right sidebar under our quote of the week.

A mini poll is a great and easy way to find out what our readers like, what they're reading and who their favorite characters are...it's fantastically wonderful! =) So we decided to have a bi weekly mini poll to get to know our readers better and well, just because we're nosy and we just wanna know...alright? And yeah, I know that our mini poll has been up all month long, but well, I just finally got around to doing this post so just deal with it, alright? Sorry about that...I'll get better with this, I swear.

A few weeks ago, we put up the poll and here are the results:

What is Your Favorite Setting for a Romance?
  • 55% for The Highlands
  • 21% for The London Ton
  • 9% for Modern Day Contemporaries
  • 12% for Modern Day Paranormals
  • 3% for Westerns
According to our little poll, the fan favorite is The Highlands setting...so I thought I'd expound a little more on this particular subject and ask a few more questions to add to the little Highland Setting Poll...
  • Why do you guys like the highland setting so much? Does the coldness of the climate appeal to you or is it the sexy Highland Lairds that do it for you? Why do you like The Highlands better than say, England or America or even Ireland, what is it about Scotland that wraps you right up into the story?
  • Who's your favorite Highlander Hero?
  • Which author, in your opinion writes the best Highland stories?
  • Which book is your favorite Highland story?
  • Is there anything about the Highlands that you don't like? What?
Come tell ladies, inquiring minds want to know...

I voted for the London Ton.
Can't say that I have read that many Highland setting books. I can only think of one.

I don't remember the names of all of the books that I have read that are based in the Highlands but I do know that Julie Garwood is a badass. I voted for the London Ton but the Highland books are awesome because its so interesting to see how the clans were run and the almost barbaric (for lack of better word) way the men were viewed. I still need to get all of my books unpacked!! *sigh*

Off topic but what is with the popups?

Is that you guys or is blogger punishing me for leaving them?

Hey Syb!

I think it's blogger. I asked Dylan about it and that's what she said. I might have to write them another letter.

Chantal,

I prefer the Highland books myself. I just really don't care for the London Ton books anymore. I think I OD'd on them.

Hey Charm School,

I'm SO with you on JG. She's great at putting together a good story.

Hey Syb,

Nope, the pop ups are actually from bravenet, I haven't figured out how to get rid of those things but until I do, they're going to plague us...sorry about that! =)

# Who's your favorite Highlander Hero? Probably Dageus MacKeltar
# Which author, in your opinion writes the best Highland stories? Karen Marie Moning
# Which book is your favorite Highland story? Kiss of the Highlander by KMM
# Is there anything about the Highlands that you don't like? What? Sometimes when I'm reading the accents it slows me down!

Daphne, Dageus' story is one that I have read. I plan to buy more from that series as soon as the boxing day shoppers go home. (I can't stand shopping with a bunch of strangers around me. I don't really like other people. I always get snotty with them when they get in my way lol)

Happy new year everyone!

Chantal ~ did you read the series out of order? hehe. I'm not really anal about that but I just thought you'd want to know the order of the series in case you already don't know:

Beyond the Highland Mist
To Tame a Highland Warrior
The Highlander's Touch
Kiss of the Highlander
The Dark Highlander
The Immortal Highlander
Spell of the Highlander

Okay I'm here to answer these questions...Daphne, I do love you sweets! haha...

# Why do you guys like the highland setting so much? Does the coldness of the climate appeal to you or is it the sexy Highland Lairds that do it for you? Why do you like The Highlands better than say, England or America or even Ireland, what is it about Scotland that wraps you right up into the story?

I love the whole setting with the rolling lush green hills, the dominant sexy men with the thick Scottish brogue, I also love the fierceness with which they loved their women, they fierceness with which they showed their loyalty and just how manly the men are...I love it!

# Who's your favorite Highlander Hero?

This one is easy...Dageus MacKeltar and then his ancestor, Cian MacKeltar...those MacKeltar men are dead sexy and oh so smart, a winning combination for me!

# Which author, in your opinion writes the best Highland stories?

I enjoy all Highlander stories but my favorites are written by Julie Garwood and Karen Marie Moning.

# Which book is your favorite Highland story?

The Dark Highlander, Spell of the Highlander and The Wedding by Julie Garwood.

# Is there anything about the Highlands that you don't like? What?

Hmmm, not really...I love those suckers to death!

Happy New Years everyone!

Chantal, let us know how you liked KMM's stories, it's a favorite amongst us here at SF, so we'd love to read your take on this series...lots and lots of hot men, that's for sure! And then of course, we'd LOVE to see if you're a Drustan or a Dageus girl...=)

Blogger Chantal said...

Out of those, I have only read Dageus' story. I did like Drustan when he made his appearance in it though. They both set off so much sex appeal, I'd like to keep them both please. Hehe.

Thanks for the book list. I do like to read in order. At the time I picked up the book I didn't know it was a series. I just thought the cover was hot.
