Meet All About Romance Reviewer
I have read romance novels since I discovered my first one at a garage sale at age12 and became hooked. I am a stay-at-home mom of two with a degree in secondary education. I was supposed to become a high school English teacher but got waylaid by motherhood. So now instead of teaching students about literature I read romance novels and children’s books. I am an avid reader, reading at least one romance novel a day, I feel I can not sleep unless I have read a book.
My first true love is African American romance novels. Kayla Perrin, Beverly Jenkins, Brenda Jackson and Rochelle Alers are some of my favorites. This genre is important to me because I am African American and for a long time ethnic romance novels were underrepresented in the book market. Now that the genre is growing I hope to have lots of books to review. I also read more traditional contemporary authors like Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown. I also love historicals like Lisa Kleypas and Jo Beverley. My newest favorite is Christine Feehan Dark Series.
Personal Reading Tastes
What I’m a sucker for in a book:
Give me a pregnant heroine, and I am a sucker every time. Also set a book in Texas on the ranch, and I am there. Who wouldn’t love a man in a cowboy hat, boots, jeans…
What drives me absolutely nuts in a book:
Poorly written Indian stories – you know, the ones where the raiding party scalps everyone and takes off with the children.
