Falling in Love with Romance by Carrie Ann Ryan
First, I want to give a HUGE thank you for letting me take over for the day. This is my debut novel, so it is always amazing to meet new people.
Today I’m going to be talking about how I fell in love with the romance world. I will admit. I’m a junkie. A romance junkie. I love love love reading romance. There is nothing better to me than after a long day, going home and cracking open a book. Or in my case lately, switching on my Kindle. LOL
I love opening my eyes to a tough hero who will sweep me off my feet. But what I really love is when the heroine scoffs and walks side by side. They are equals in my world. Strength in romance and their love. It makes me all gooey inside LOL.
My first romance book was actually Twilight. I know right? But even though people may roll their eyes, it still caught my attention. Then I gave them back to my friend and bought a copy of a Laurell K. Hamilton book, Guilty Pleasures. Now that one drew me to good story telling and romance. Though it still didn’t feel like a true romance yet. But after reading Sherrylin Kenyon, Kelley Armstrong and then Nora Roberts, I found myself with a clear addiction. And I don’t want a cure. Just give me more romance!
I love reading romance. I love the connections, the fact that no matter what happens, there is a happy ending. I don’t want to go through reading a 350+ page book and then everyone leave alone. Sad. What was the point? Evil and lonely hearts overpopulate our society – bring me something new. Something I can drown myself in and fall in love.
I don’t need fancy cars, diamond earrings, chocolates and silk. If they are in a trailer park in the wilderness and one happens to turn into a werewolf or a moose I’d be happy. As long as they are in love, I can be drawn in. On that note however, I have the sudden feeling to write a moose inspired love story. Hmm…. LOL
What is your favorite part of romance? What brought you in? Talk to me.
Again, thank you for letting me stop by!
