Hello! I’m so excited to be a part of the Fall Into Romance Blog Hop! I love reading which books inspired authors to write romance.
As for me, I was a late-bloomer. I didn’t read my 1st romance until 1994, the year I turned 23. I had been reading and writing suspense stories up to this point. But a friend brought me a book she had read and liked and suggested I read it. It is an historical romance set in Scotland. She knew I loved Scotland (AKA my happy place!) and she was convinced I’d love this book. Which book you ask?
I loved the book and Ms. Lamb’s writing. I quickly read every book I could find of hers. And I was hooked on romance books! I soon realized that romance novels were so much more than man meets woman, man and woman argue, man and woman get together. Until this point, I hadn’t thought romance novels could also, at the same time, be about history, suspense, mystery, etc. My friend’s suggestion opened up a whole new world for me and I’ve been reading the genre ever since!
What’s your favorite sub-genre in a romance book? Leave a comment and you could be a winner! At the end of the blog hop, I’ll give away a Celtic prize in honor of The Chieftain and my own latest book, Hear My Cry. Although Hear My Cry is set in Austin, TX, it does have Celtic ties, too!
