I have loved to read ever since I can remember. My tastes have changed throughout the years: from Dr. Seuss to R. L. Stine to Stephen King and Dean Koontz before discovering a love of romances while in college. I read contemporary and paranormal romances until buying an anthology featuring Sabrina Jeffries on a whim one day. I loved the historical setting and promptly read everything written by her. From that time on, historical romance has been my genre of choice. Beastly heroes and smart and sassy heroines are my absolute favorite!
