WLW & lesbian books with ice queen characters – (F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge #1)

I’m very excited to share the first post of the long-awaited F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge with you. For our first crossword puzzle, I picked WLW & lesbian books with ice queen characters because that kind of heroine is quite popular with readers. If you are unfamiliar with the term, an ice queen is a character who starts out as cold and prickly but usually thaws during the course of the book, often because they’re falling in love with the other main character. If you missed yesterday’s post explaining the rules of the F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge, read up on it …

Many readers were surprised to discover that they actually enjoyed those genres. Others appreciated that they discovered new authors through Book Bingo instead of sticking to their established favorites.   A …

I know many of you have been waiting none too patiently for this list. Medical romance novels have been popular not just since Callie & Arizona from Grey’s Anatomy. Maybe it’s their great bedside manner or their white coats that makes women in medical professions such a hit with readers.
