Hey there - Tracy here. I'm filling in for Kati as she was hit by Hurricane Irene. She's well but has no power...therefore no internet. Please keep Kati and the many others on the east coast in your thoughts as they deal with the fallout.
The boss that I worked for for the past 10 years recently retired. She’s a good friend and knows that I read romance novels and likes to listen to all of the different stories I have to tell if I come across a bizarre premise or a juicy m/m novel, etc.
I had lunch with her yesterday and since she’s retired she now has all this time to read (lucky bitch) and though she reads fiction and non-fiction she’s only ever read one romance novel and that was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. She really liked that book and even read part of the next one in that series but couldn’t finish it. She got an iPad for a retirement gift and just loves the Kindle app on it. She now wants me to choose a romance novel for her.
Oh. the. pressure.
She’s not really a fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal or sci-fi kind of girl.
She would like a historical (any time period/country) or a contemporary.
I’ll have to work her up to m/m like I did for my mom but for now I think I’ll stick with m/f.
I have a couple of ideas but wanted some input from our many, many followers.
Tell me your 1 recommendation (I know, it’s hard to keep it to one) that you would give a non-romance novel reading friend – even if it’s fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi or m/m – that’s looking for a really good romance.
Come on people, don’t be shy!
