Wild, Wicked & Wanton

101 Ways to Love Like You're in a Romance Novel

Christie Craig and Faye Hughes are romance writers who took their research on love and romance and wrote an excellent book on the dos and don’ts of love. To guide us through their research is heroine, Jayne. Jayne has stared in lots of romance novels and has come across many heroes and roadblocks to love. By using her experiences, by the end of the book you’ll know how to find that happily ever after ending.
Jayne doesn’t just jump into her story without a plan. First you need to know if the guy is a keeper or a creeper. Jayne shares her experiences with both giving you insight on what to look for and what not to find. After all, why waste your time on someone who isn’t going to give you what you need, want and deserve.
Of course, everyone loves a bad boy and Jayne does too. She however knows if they can be reformed into a keeper or if they’re just around for a good time. She admits that there is nothing wrong with a good time if that’s all you’re looking for but if you’re not, take notes. Jayne tells it how it is.
But what if you love the guy and your friends and family think he’s no good. Or what if your family “knows” the perfect guy. Jayne shares her experiences with this common problem. After all, guys may come and go but family is always around.
With 10 chapters, an appendix and an index, Jayne goes through every imaginable scenario sharing her advice, her experiences and her knowledge. A lot of it you may have heard before and some of it may be new but regardless Jayne puts it all out there so you know and understand what is happening.
I found this a fun book to read. Its humorous heroine, Jayne, gives life to all the 101 ways to love like you’re in a romance novel. And yes, the ways are numbered and scattered throughout the book. You don’t need to be single and looking to enjoy Jayne’s adventures. I’m not and I thoroughly enjoyed.
I never really thought about it but I guess romance writers do need to put in a lot of research on falling in love and finding the right guy. I can’t think of a better way to put all that research to work than this great guide. I can’t recommend this little book enough to anyone who has ever loved and lost and tried again. 
After all, we all deserve a happily ever after and everyone can use the help of a friend like Jayne.

Book Blurb for Wild, Wicked & Wanton

Sure, romance novels offer are fun, pure fantasy, but can they actually teach a woman anything about love?Absolutely!

Think about it, if a woman spent as much time plotting her romantic relationships as authors did in plotting their romance novels, there would be far less heartache. If real women took their cues from romance heroines, there may be more real-life Happily Ever Afters. Romance authors Christie Craig and Faye Hughes have turned their philosophy into a humorous self-help relationship book that lists 101 ways a woman can love like she's a romance heroine.

Romance heroines aren't perfect, they make mistakes. But by the end of the book, they've earned their walk into the sunset. How do they do it? Courage, wisdom, and some good ol' kick-ass gumption. Heroines don't wish they'd said something, they say it. They don't fret about their problems; they fix them. And couldn't we all use a little bit of their wisdom to deal with real life and with real men?

Meet Jayne. Like most romance heroines - and most real life women - she's had her share of heartaches. In Wild, Wicked and Wanton, Jayne's search for true love teaches her:

How to recognize a Keeper . . . and a Creeper

How to tame a Bad Boy

How to trust her instincts

How to find her own Mr. Right

And Much, Much More!
