Aloha to Sarah Wendell and EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE I LEARNED FROM ROMANCE NOVELS
Everything I know about world history I learned from romance novels. Or at least more than high school where it seemed so irrelevant. For me, history comes alive in romance books because I have a vested interest in the characters who lived in the time period. Romance books makes history fun ... just imagine if Leopold appeared in your apartment!
What else has romance taught its readers? Sarah Wendell is celebrating the release of her new book, EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE I LEARNED FROM ROMANCE NOVELS:
Straight from the heart of influential romance blogger Sarah Wendell, this inventive gift book provides the best wisdom about love that the romance genre has to offer. Laced with signature witty commentary and peppered with thoughts from bestselling romance authors and avid readers, these pages will reveal what every romance reader already knows: while romances are certainly steamy, they have more to offer than just a sexy hero. In fact, they might have more to say about love than we give them credit for.
I posted my review on Goodreads at this link. To learn more about Sarah and her books, check out her website at this link. I am giving away a print copy of EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE I LEARNED FROM ROMANCE NOVELS to one randomly selected commenter. To enter the giveaway,
