TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books That Feature Characters Who Are Writers
Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

A Victorian-era novelist who specializes in scandalous settings.
2. See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson -- Jane Alcott
A female sports journalist who also writes erotic adventures for a magazine.

Colin writes about his various travels while Penelope's writings are bit more mysterious.
4. This Heart of Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips -- Molly Somerville
A children's book writer.
5. And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke -- Emmaline Dove
She acts as a publisher's secretary, but secretly writes etiquette books for ladies.
6. Ten Things I Love About You by Julia Quinn -- Sebastian Gray
One of the most surprising writers...a lord who writes something very unusual.
