All the Snuggles

Admit it: your favorite part of a romance novel is the first kiss. It’s okay, this is a safe space. You can be honest. We’re all here for the same reason – we love clean, contemporary romance. We’re not looking for sex or swearing, but that kiss … There’d better be at least one, and I want it to make my heart twitter! I’m a big fan of kissing. It shouldn’t surprise me. I’ve [...]

What’s Your Type?

Finding your fictional perfect match! Hi everyone! How’s your early summer going so far? Any moms out there equal parts excited and nervous about the prospect of children home all summer? Just me?

People Being People

You know what I like about stories? People being people. People are interesting. Or is it just me? Everyone has something special about them. A quirk, if you will. I read a book recently where one of the characters talked to the cars on the road and did online stress shopping. Yes Austin, you know that story 😉 (Falling For You by Becky Wade). These were small things in the grand scope of the [...]

What Were You Reading?

Hooked on Phonics worked for me! That’s not a pitch, that’s the truth. I wasn’t a great reader as a kid. Neither was my sister. My mom wanted to make sure we didn’t fall through the cracks, so she ordered Hooked on Phonics. (Mr. GH is a funny little man...) We worked our way through the program and ended up learning to read (go figure!). I’d always enjoyed books, but once I could read [...]
