Life without a romance novel!

Have you thought about a world without books? Especially without romance books? I shudder when I think about it! Can anything be more horrible?

I can imagine myself dragging through the days and nights wishing for that unreal, impractical and totally impossibly handsome man waiting for me in a beautiful, again impossible places but to what avail? I know I can do nothing but just imagine it.
But with books? Well, with books, I can see them happening!

 In my favorite romance books, someone (read the blessed writer!) has wrapped my favorite dream over a delicious candy and sprinkled it with some hotter, sweet nothings that I craved for but never knew and gifted it to me. That is pretty much what romance novels mean to me.

They are those dreams that are silly yet essential for our spirits to move on in life. We don’t realize their importance till they are missing from our lives. Let’s be honest and think about how many times we have turned to a romance novel when we were going through a rough patch? I remember guzzling down piles of romance novels when I was away from my then boyfriend and now husband. It gave me solace and hope that all things romantic would come to me too. Pretty soon. And you know what? It did!

So, when life is in dumps, a romance novel might just be the happy drink one is looking for! Therefore, when I wrote the story of Lyla and Alex, I poured in everything that makes the book a happy reading journey worth taking.

Lyla and Alex have issues too. But they have their happy moments too. And in those moments, they find the strength to love, forgive, heal and move on. And to my credit, I also sprinkled with heavy doses of hot romance that satisfies some of our secret cravings too! Wink

I loved my journey with my debut romance novella “Always You”. And I couldn’t have written it without the constant presence of romance novels to cheer me, love me and most of all, to give me the dreams that I never dared to dream!

I hope if you ever pick up “Always You” to read, you would enjoy it as much as I did writing it!

Thank you Brenda for having me on your blog today and let me share my love for romance novels. Much appreciated.
