Why I read and write romance novels...

Recently I was asked why I write sweet romance. My automatic answer came out without me even thinking about it—I read for enjoyment, and to me that is once upon a time and happily ever after.

This person didn’t let me off the hook that easily, she wanted to know why?

I explained that working in the non-profit human services field I see enough of the real world, and that I don’t want to read about it.

Again, she asked why?

I explained that I have control over what I bring upon myself, and I don’t want that to be tragedy, or misfortune, or heartache. I want my life to be filled with humor, grace, and love, so that’s what I choose to read and write about.

Years ago I heard someone say the below standard, and have always believed it.
Watch your thoughts because they become your words.
Watch your words because they become your actions.
Watch your actions because they become your habits.
Watch your habits because they become your character.
Watch your character because it becomes your destiny.

On to reviews for this week….

Doctor McBride—4 hearts from Dee Daily at The Romance Studio. “Ms. Robinson keeps this tale fast moving with those twists and turns that always make a book fun.”

And Rancher McBride—5 hearts from the same reviewer at The Romance Studio. “The interaction of the characters and the dialogue in this installment of the McBride family saga is excellent.”

Doctor McBride also received a review from Joyfully Reviewed. Reviewer Tanya said, “A fast paced fun addition to the McBride brothers’ stories.”
