Contest!!! Cathy's giving one LCB a copy of "Bedding the Heiress!" And, I'll toss one to a second LCB, only cause I have an extra. No way I'm giving up my copy.
What a great day! Cathy Maxwell's here to celebrate the release of her hot new historical, "Bedding the Heiress!" I remember binging on on Cathy's novels when I first started reading romance, and I recall fondly a crush on a certain roguish Irish hero. Today Cathy posits a theory about why we read romance, and I for one agree enthusiastically, which is how I know you'll want to offer Cathy your Bella buongiorno this morning...
“It’s the tall boots,” is how I usually respond when I’m asked why I read “those” books.
I love being swept away by a story whether it is about female vampire slayers, sassy career gals, or women taking on society or the prairie. I’ll read anything as long as the story includes a great relationship.
Besides, someplace between fourth load of laundry for the day and the need to make still another trip to the grocery store where I’ll spend time answering calls from my boss and my mother, it’s at that moment when I need to be reminded why I decided to crowd my life with all these people to love.
You know the answer. It had to do with that first thrill of love and a very special connection with a man who has made juggling it all worthwhile.
And I don’t care if he wears tall boots or not . . .
So what about you? When is “your” time for reading? And why Romance? What draws you to “our” books?
