I’m always looking for a good romantic comedy when theaters come out with their new releases. To tell you the truth, it’s been a dry spell since the heyday youth of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan . I keep trying, but I don’t think I’ve really enjoyed one rom com since the 90’s.
I might be a throwback to the black and white comedies like It Happened One Night, but I don’t mean that kind of screwball comedy or the raucous gut-busting comedy of Bridesmaids, which of course are great. I mean the funny, but sweet, romance-with-an-obstacle kind of comedy found in Sleepless in Seattle, for example.
Where have all the rom coms gone?
I searched Google and wow! Other people’s ideas of what makes a fantastic romantic comedy are widely different from mine, so I thought I’d throw my list out there and let you share yours.
1. While You Were Sleeping – I’d never much liked Sandra Bullock until I saw this movie, but its acting and storyline are so non-sacchriny that I’d put it at the top of my list. The misfit girl, waiting forever for her dream and dream man and bam! There he is in the most unexpected place.
2. When Harry Met Sally – just for the banter alone (not to mention the famous cafe scene delivered by Meg Ryan) along with the comedic chops of Billy Crystal in his younger days, this one has to be on my short-list.
3. Pretty Woman – the concept of the man with everything who doesn’t have the one thing that matters is always intriguing. A working girl turned girlfriend is about as cliched as they come, but somehow Julia Roberts — with all that hair! and Richard Gere with that cool aloofness — work for me.
What about you? Favorite three romance comedies and why. Don’t forget the why! It’s the most important part. Today I’m giving away both a free audible download of The Watcher and an ebook of the same title.

Brace yourselves, ladies! With the release of SECOND-CHANCE SEDUCTION, I’ve launched a new series with Harlequin Desire featuring the McLaren brothers of the highlands of Northern California. To honor their heritage, we’re throwing a Scottish-themed launch party today. The Lair is decked out in tartan, the tables are overloaded with legs o’ lamb (plus haggis for the Bravehearts in the bunch), and the cabana boys are dressed in kilts!
Our young, kilted laddies are willing to play a few Scottish games with ye, if ye’ve a mind to… wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
The MacLaren brothers are taking California by storm with their brewing empire, and pity the women who get in their way. Aye, these men have talented tongues, an’ make no mistake. Raise a pint for a traditional toast. (Never mind if you don’t drink. This is fictional beer.)
If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
So let it be!
And now, a bit about SECOND-CHANCE SEDUCTION…
Connor MacLaren never forgave Maggie Jameson for leaving him. Ten years later, his former sweetheart’s back in their California town, desperate for the Scottish businessman’s help. And he knows just how to get her out of his system once and for all…
Agreeing to temporarily pose as Connor’s girlfriend is déjà vu. After only a few minutes alone with the rugged Highlander, Maggie’s breathless with desire. Of course, this was Connor’s intention…until his plan backfires, leaving them both wanting much more.
Now, lassies, let’s give ourselves not-so-authentic Scots nicknames. Here’s how it works… Take your first name and give it an “-ie” ending. Then add “Mac” to your most notable physical feature, the street where you grew up, or a word related to your job. Today, I shall be Katie MacDeadline!
Post your Scots nickname in the comments below, and I’ll select one of ye at random to receive an autographed copy of SECOND-CHANCE SEDUCTION.
