I'm in for a treat...





DVDs of the BBC's North and South arrived today and I can't wait to start watching the series tonight. Somehow I missed this when it was on TV and I've heard so much about it, especially about Richard Armitage.
A little while ago, writer friend Anne Gracie alerted me to the fact that amazon.co.uk was having a sale of DVDs, so I quickly grabbed this beauty. I'm sorry I didn't mention it at the time. Blogs should be about passing on useful information, shouldn't they?
Anyway, just checked and North and South is still greatly reduced, so perhaps the sale is continuing. You might like to check it out.
And in the interests of passing on information, if there's anyone out there who would like to know more about writing for Harlequin Romance aka Romance (UK) or Sweet romance (ANZ), just sing out!

You are so lucky: oh to be about to experience all the wonder and joy that is North and South. I think my copy is just about worn out!!!

Loved, loved, loved it, 2 paw. I watched all four episodes last night. And it was so worthwhile -- and let me just say aaaaah about that fabulous, amazing kiss at the end, which had so much power because of the long, increasingly complicated tension leading up to it.

I bought this last year, Barb, when everyone was raving about it.

I loved it too!

That scene at the train station...sigh...

Barbara - can you now see why Wtaching this series inspired me to write a romance?

There are now five of us published from the N&S fansite. N&S introduced me to the concept of the Alpha Male.. as as you say, powerful emotion and agonising URST. I didn't know that these are the building blocks of all romance at the time.
