The steamy month of August also happens to be Read a Romance Month.  Yep, consider this a mid-month reminder or a call to read one for the very first time. 🙂 Was that an eye-roll I sensed from some of you readers? I'm sure it was.  Why?  Because romance is one of the most shat-upon genres. … Continue reading Read a Romance Month
