Real life put its foot down right in the middle of my April and made very sure that I didn’t get much reading done. So that means very few good romance novel recommendations for you. Luckily for this post, there were two rec worthy reads in there.
The Runaway Countess by Leigh LaValle: This was a wonderful read! I was pretty shocked to learn that this was a debut book. The author had a smooth, emotional quality to her writing that I don’t often find in a new author. I really enjoyed watching the hero and heroine grow and fall in love, and can’t wait to see what this author comes out with next. This got an A- from me. The review will be posted soon.
The Witness by Nora Roberts: This felt like a return to the Nora Roberts of old. I loved rediscovering the charm of her old style. The way she does the backstory in her standalones and the way she can build a community really stood out. The storyline was unique and different, and the hero was a lot of fun to read about. This gets a B+ from me. Read the review here.
So far the only strike against me is curiosity?”
“There are others. Proximity, for one, which would make it awkward and problematic when I no longer want to have sex with you.”
“What makes you think you’re going to want to stop having sex with me?”
She got out two glasses, two small plates, two forks. “The law of averages.”
“Oh, that. I defy averages.”
“A lot of people believe they do. They don’t.”
