But Eric is finally ready to admit to the feelings he had all along. Will she believe him, or have they missed their chance to connect at last?

Reviewing Romance Novels
This vella focuses on romance novels. Instead of a fictional account, this non-fiction story covers some the reasons people read romance (despite heavy opposition), who reads it, as well as popular romance tropes, sub-genres, and terminology. Once we have a better understanding of the genre as a whole, we'll hit the reviews of some of the romance novels I've read.

I live in the southern US with my husband, kids, and a cat who rules the house. I spend way too much time on the computer, and only some of it is looking at cat videos, laughing at writing memes, or reading romance novels.
