Losing It - Your Perfect Valentine's Day Gift!

Confession: I was never a big romance reader. I preferred stories of fantasy and adventure and was skeptical when it came to stories of love. Always the cynic when it came to relationships!

But I would always wonder just what was in those books my mom would never let me touch on her bookshelf - an entire bookshelf of Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel, Sandra Brown, and others I'm likely forgetting. When she finally thought me old enough to give one a go, she handed me a Nora Roberts book, and I finally saw what all the fuss was all about. So I read just about every Nora Roberts book on the shelf, then moved on to the others.

In fact, as much as I am still a cynic, Nora Roberts' Dance Upon the Air changed the way I looked at love It gave me hope. I still have that book (pretty sure I stole it from my mom. Sorry, Mom!) and it is one of my most re-read books.

I wrote my first romance novel last year, Damsel Not. While my heroine still holds that cynical and stubborn outlook that I maintain to the day, she also lets herself open up to the possibility of happiness. I wrote that book remembering how I felt reading one of my first romance novels: surprised, excited, pessimistic, and, well, a little giggly (hey, I was in middle school). 

Giving Caster and Evangeline of Fragile Creatures their own romantic scene was a combination of all those things romance books made me want. I hope you enjoy it!
