The First Illustrated Romance Ever?!

Just what exactly is an illustrated romance, you might be asking. Well, picture your regular romance but instead of seeing the characters and scenes in your head, you see them right there on the page!

Sounds amazing right? 😀

Well author Jenn LeBlanc might have just started a new trend with her debut illustrated romance The Rake and the Recluse!

I confess when I first heard of this new romance, I couldn’t quite get my head around it, simply because I wondered why it took so long to come up with this kind of book! A great romance and plenty of well-shot photos to drool over? Yes please!!! The best part? The author took them herself (she’s also a talented photographer) so we get her vision directly from her!

Francine Larrabee woke up on the wrong side of the century. She was fairly certain she went to sleep in her own comfy bed, but she doesn’t quite seem to be there now. Only adding to her problems is that she has no voice, is constantly being glowered at by a large, stunning man who is obsessed with propriety, and she is apparently betrothed to another horrid little man, determined to ruin her, and any other girls that get in his way.

How does she find herself in the past, when she couldn’t even find herself in her present? How does a self sufficient businesswoman survive in a time when women were still considered property for the whole of their lives and what is she going to do with this man who draws her to him so fiercely.

The book is available on Amazon in paperback (published last year) and you can even view the first chapter and get a peek at some of the photos inside!

Currently the book has been updated with brand new chapters and photos and there is no doubt it will soon be available on Amazon in paperback to order.

The new title will read The Rake and the Recluse Redux and is divided into 6 parts all of which will be available on Kindle February 14 and 28 2012.

So what are you waiting for? Have a look at this exciting new concept and you might be seriously tempted to buy!

I know I will be picking up a copy very soon 😉
