One of Houston's most popular authors, Kerrelyn Sparks, signs and discusses her latest release, Less Than a Gentleman. Sparks, who is well known as a paranormal writer (she does lots of romantic comedy with vampires), began her career writing historical romance novels such as Less Than a Gentleman, which follows the dashing rogue Matthias Murray Thomas, a freedom fighter during the American Revolution, and Caroline Munro, a woman he persuades to pose as his fiancée. We don't really have to tell you the rest, do we? They fall in love. A lot. And they misread each other's signals. A lot. And since this is a Sparks novel, they make readers laugh. A lot. Sparks shares the podium with fellow writers Lily Dalton (Never Desire a Duke) and Shana Galen (True Spies).
