ROMANTIC READS

So many books on my list of favorites .  To simplify  I am putting my books into categories.  This is the first one.  They will  be a lot more to come.  Keep reading.

This is a fairly new release.  I  couldn’t stop reading it.  There’s intrigue but there is no question this is a book about a great romance.  VENETIA KELLY’S TRAVELING SHOW  by Frank Delaney

I would like to introduce you to Marlene de Blast (if you haven’t already met this author).  Her books are prose that read like poetry.  There’s recipes (she’s a chef) but there is great romance and it is non fiction.  Read in the proper sequence.
