My next guest is…
Heather Snow is a historical romance writer with a degree in Chemistry who found she much preferred creating chemistry on the page, rather than in the lab! She is forever trying to wrangle her left and right brain to work together (some days with more success than others!), but if her two sides had to duke it out, left would win every time–which can be a creative challenge. Luckily, she loves challenges…she just goes about solving them analytically.
She lives with her husband and two sons in the Midwest and truly hopes you find her stories have just the right chemistry
Heather’s latest release is SWEET ENEMY:
Geoffrey Wentworth, a war hero and rising political star, never wanted to be the Earl, but when his brother dies, he knows his duty—take up the responsibility for his family’s estates. His mother’s definition of duty differs from his, however, and can be summed up in one word—heirs. When Geoffrey rushes home to answer her urgent summons, he finds himself host to a house full of women, all vying to become the next Countess of Stratford. But his love is Parliament, where he wields his influence and reputation to better the lives of ex-soldiers, until a tempting houseguest and a secret from his past threaten his freedom…and his heart.
Liliana Claremont, a brilliant chemist, doesn’t want to be any man’s wife, much less a Countess. If she had tuppence for every time she’d been told her place was filling the nursery, not experimenting in the laboratory, she could buy the Tower Bridge. However, when she receives a coveted invitation to the Earl’s house party, she trades in her beakers for ball gowns and gladly takes on the guise of husband hunter—for the chance to uncover what the Earl had to do with the murder of her father.

“Not often do I pick up something that sucks me in so thoroughly that I have no concept of anything else but the world in the book I am reading. Thank you, Heather Snow, for transporting me somewhere else for a much needed escape!”

I love that Heather’s heroine is a chemist! Since I used to teach science, to enter to win a copy of SWEET ENEMY, simply tell me…
What was your favorite science sub-discipline (geology, chemistry, physics, etc) when you were in school? (Or, if you hated science, why?)

I would have to say geology. I’ve always been interested in plate tectonics.

I’m kind of a nerd myself, so chemistry was my favorite in high school and although I didn’t turn that in to a career for myself I still remember the excitement of the labs we’d done.

I would say it was the earth sciences too (Geology etc) but I was also an anthro minor so I liked playing in the dirt. I had a rock collection as a child and everything. We are lucky enough now to live right next to a beautiful national park with lots of geological features.

i hated science im not gonna lie even had to take a summer school course as i wouldnt dissect a frog. i was more a math and english girl but needed the credits

Ehhh science was never my thing in high school. I took the requirements of earth science (freshman) and biology (sophmore where we had to dissect frongs). It just always went over my head, made me feel dumb even though I passed them

Me and science did not get along at all. I didn’t hate it but it was really hard for me to keep my focus and absorb the content.

I liked geology.

Looks like an awesome novel! Looking forward to reading 🙂

biology because i don’t remember there being any math involved. but i liked the cool experiments we did in chemistry and physics
April 3rd, 2012 at 6:46 pm · Link
I would say it was biology for me 🙂
April 3rd, 2012 at 6:46 pm · Link
Oh I was horrible in science… but I have to go with Chemistry. The experiments were fun, chemical reactions so interesting and amazingly complicated.
April 3rd, 2012 at 6:48 pm · Link
My favorite subject was Earth Science.
April 3rd, 2012 at 6:57 pm · Link
i loved anatomy & physiology! but i also have a soft spot for chemistry because i teach chem labs
April 3rd, 2012 at 7:08 pm · Link
I loved pretty much all science, but my favorite I think was Anatomy and Physiology. I loved to dissect things. I know, gross, right?

I always enjoyed biology – anything to do with animals especially.
April 3rd, 2012 at 7:50 pm · Link
Was not a fan of science, but I did enjoy Geology/ Earth Science in college.
April 3rd, 2012 at 7:58 pm · Link
was never any good at the physical sciences but always enjoyed psychology — what makes people tick is fascinating

The only science class I enjoyed in school was ecology, I was more into history.

i loved marine biology!
April 3rd, 2012 at 9:01 pm · Link
Chemistry I always pictured myself as a mad scientist. LOL.
April 3rd, 2012 at 9:05 pm · Link
My favorite was biology. I even went on to major in it!

this book was awesome! the personw ho wins is seriously in for agreat read

I liked some of it but it wasn’t my strong suit! lol
April 3rd, 2012 at 10:06 pm · Link
I liked chemistry–it made the most sense to me, all those rules fitting things together. Physics through me for a major loop from which I never recovered 😉

I’m an engineer. I loved all the sciences.

My favorite was biology.

My favorite was also biology. I tought that dissecting frogs was cool (at that time!).
Thanks for the giveaway!

I enjoyed biology especially anything to do with animals. Plus, we watched a lot of videos.

Astronomy. I hated Chemistry
April 4th, 2012 at 11:47 am · Link
My favorite was chemistry although for completely crazy reasons. I used my french knowledge to memorize the periodic table of elements (still remember them to this day), and my 10th grade chem teacher had to run under a table one day in class when his volcano went off before he was ready. Good times!

It’s hard to decide, but I’ll go with physics since I enjoyed building a trebuchet.

I loved animal behavior, hated physics.
