I am from Alabama where I live with my husband of over 30 years in our now empty nest. Our three adult children have flown the coop and my husband and I are getting ready to build that retirement house in the next few years when I hope to have even more time for reading. I am a lifelong reader and while I read primarily romance, I enjoy most genres. If an author can tell a good story, I will read it.
I love a story that gets me emotionally involved in whether the main characters get their HEA; a story that hits me on a visceral level and makes me want to turn back to page one as soon as I read "the end."
What I Hate in a Romance
Preaching of any description
Stereotypes and caricatures that are the result of lazy writing rather than furtering any plot
