A to Z April – R:  Romance

A to Z April – R: Romance

Now, I’m not what you’d call someone who picks up books just because they are romance.  But, I do like a romance within a story.  I just need there to be more than just a romance.  I read YA mostly these days, but I have read more adult romances in the past.  I preferred the… Read more »
