It’s Contemporary Romance Month over on our Embracing Romance Facebook page!
I write historical romance, but I love a good contemporary romance. I think romance is romance, regardless of the era. Men and women are, at their core, the same in any time period. We laugh, love, cry, hurt, want to bang our husbands over the head with frying pans and get that flutter in our bellies when we kiss that special someone.
As readers, we can sigh right along with the heroine as her knight in shining armor braves the dragon, and we can sigh when a firefighter hero rescues a kitten from a tree. A Navy SEAL, an earl, a millionaire, a medieval knight, a spy, a small town chef, a NYC stockbroker, a Tudor courtier—I love reading them all!
So my question to you, Dear Readers, is what time period do you love to read? And, if it’s contemporary, what’s on your TBR pile?
