Women's Fiction Contemporary | Romance Contemporary
At 25, after five years as her mother's caregiver,
it's time for Shelby to experience freedom and adventure.
Time for travel, college and romance. But when she visits
Virgin River, she runs into Luke Riordan, decidedly
not whom she has in mind.
A handsome Blackhawk
pilot, Luke exited the army after twenty years, four wars
and having been shot out of the sky three times. At thirty-
eight he's tough and jaded. His major was in one-night
stands, with a minor in commitment avoidance.
Technically, these two are all wrong for one another. But
sometimes what you want and what you need are two different
things…two very good things.

Sometimes getting lost in a simple, sweet or spicy, romance is just what you want or need to calm life down. Hope Gwen, and you, are fully recovered!

Gosh, Gwen, that same thing happened to my sister when her daughter flipped her car and ran all the way home. She was OK, but it was scary.

Thank heaven Gwen is all right, or as all right as someone can be when they've collided with all you mentioned.
As you know, my life underwent a drastic change with my husband's "freak" home accident 2-1/2 years ago. I would be lost without my books. They've always been my friends, but the last 2 years they are my best friends and sometimes the only contact I have with "outsiders" for days on in.
Romance does it best for me, but then those serial killers keep me enthralled. Let's face it, I like everything but paranormals and sci-fi.
Give Gwen a big hug from all of us FF "peoples"....

I have always turned to a good book to- what I call- escape the crappiness of life sometimes. I have always loved to read a good romance- if only to have the happy ending all neatly tied up in a way that real life can not be. I have my favorite authors I save that I know can make me laugh and get caught up in a great story.

Yes, romances are sort of the sedative
for those of us who could have better
days. At times, we don't need to read
about chaos and suspense - we have
enough of our own. Something sweet,
not necessarily simple, and satisfying
- best of all it isn't fattening. What
more could one want to sooth the soul
when your 18 year old son walks into
the bedroom at 3 AM asking "Who's
going to take me to the hospital, I just
cut my finger off?" Too bad I forgot a
book that night. He's 26 now, I keep a
book in the car just in case, but he's
getting better at getting himself to the
emergency room. I wasn't even home
when the bear attacked him in the
back yard (wish I had been, he didn't
go to the hospital and should have).
We do earn every grey hair, don't we.

Yeah, when our lives are turned upside down, especially from the fallout of something someone else did, we need to seek solace, and I also turn to books. They are good for escapism!
