No, in this thread people love a variety of romance authors. When I first started, I read contemporary romances, but I'm fascinated with the nobility and Regency, Edwardian, and Georgian periods, so now I read the majority of those kinds of books. oceansportrait - I will have to check that series out. boxermom - I can't remember which one it was. If you ladies read really fast, I HIGHLY encourage you all to check out the romance collections at your local libraries, my County library's collection is massive. Also, check out the e-books. I also started listening to the audio books.....I find that books I just CAN'T get into, or normally would NOT read in print, I get another perspective through audio--I think it the narration...Highly advise checking this out.
