In honor of this last week of Read a Romance month, I took some time to browse through some of the author posts over on the Read a Romance website. I enjoyed them so much, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.
‘That’s what romance (at any age!) provides, the joy of a hand to hold on the journey, a person with whom to share the tears and laughter that accompany any life…’ —says Christie Ridgway–one of the authors I mentioned earlier this month.
Kristan Higgins’ post was about heroes and what makes us love them. Her list is a good one, including such traits as kindness and appreciation. So much more to a hero than broad shoulders and long eyelashes! (Although we can certainly appreciate those!)
In a post from 2013, Susan Elizabeth Phillips talks about how the romance genre is life affirming–as couples meet, fall in love and life goes forward.There’s comfort in the circle of life, so to speak. She says readers “ simply want a good story, characters they care about, and emotions they can identify with – exactly what the good romance delivers. “
Jeannie Moon writes about how true romance comes in every day life, from having someone who ‘gets you’. I couldn’t agree with her more.
Such a far-reaching, endless possibilities genre, is romance. Are you a romance reader? Did you find anything new to read this month, whatever the genre may be?
****I truly enjoy hearing from you. Please do leave a comment or pop over to Facebook and chime in on the conversation–there’s always conversation!****
