Hi, my name is Stacey and I have recently discovered that I’m a historical/western romance addict. I’m not exactly sure how this happened. I’m not a girly-girl. I have lots of shoes, but they’re all orthopedic in nature and not cute. I have lots of make-up because I do theatre, but I don’t wear it the rest of the year. I have no desire to see Eat, Pray, Love. But I cannot get enough of flowery prose about broad shouldered cowboys and Lords. In the past three days I’ve read three Alexis Harrington books-Harper’s Bride, The Irish Bride, and Homeward Hearts. They are $2.99 at Smashwords and Amazon and it is just too easy for me to download the next one onto my Kindle when I’ve finished one.
I haven’t thought of myself as a person who reads romance novels until I got my kindle. At first I’d read a paranormal every now and again, but then I read Outlander and discovered that I like historicals too. When I saw a review for Harper’s Bride on Smartbitches I decided to check it out. Well, guess I like Westerns as well. Actually, Alexis Harrington is from the Portland area and still lives here and most of her books take place in Oregon. Maybe that’s why I like them. Kinda like when I see movies that were filmed by where I used to live in L.A.- the, “Hey I know where that is!” factor.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been doing with my days. Sarah is almost done with her second round edits of Glimmer and then I will have some work to do! Until then, I’ll just be sitting on my butt anticipating reading scenes in which sweaty well-muscled men cool off by sticking their heads underneath a water pump in the yard.
