30 Day Book Challenge – Day 20

Today’s prompt: Favorite romance book

I’m actually a huge sucker for romance. If a book includes romance, chances are, I will like it infinitely more. This is my favorite romance novel of all time:

Ashes in the Wind is beefy for a romance; my paperback is 665 pages. You’d think a book of that length would contain some boring parts, but nope. There’s a surprising amount of action here.

Basically, a tomboyish Southern belle falls in love with a Yankee doctor during the Civil War. Of course, the two start out bickering constantly, but unlike most romance novels, it’s more entertaining than annoying. Alaina, the heroine definitely is not just a wimpy damsel in need of rescuing. Her strength and bravery bring the book to life, along with vivid descriptions of the Southern landscape.

  1. I enjoy reading historical romance novels ~ combining a glimpse into the past with a look at timeless tales of love (and betrayal).

    This sounds like a good one to enjoy on a rainy day. Thanks, Maggie.


      • I read that one. It was all right. Jude Deveraux’s heroines are a little bit too “saccharine” for my taste, but I’m glad you’re enjoying it. 🙂


  2. I like Kathleen Woodiwiss. I read ‘A Rose in Winter’ but nothing else so far.
