About the Romance Blogger
Where You Can Find Me
First Romance Book I Read
My roommate in college, Amy, was a huge romance reader. She really wanted me to read one so she gave me Sweet Liar by Jude Deveraux because the heroine’s name was Samantha. I was hooked. I went to Barnes and Noble the next day and bought all Deveraux’s books (this was before readers when you could just go to amazon and download them!).
Ezrah: I don’t think I’ve read Sweet Liar before! I’m definitely checking it out!
Favorite Romance Genre/s
Paranormal Romance and Romantic Suspense
Ezrah: I’m starting to love PNR!
Favorite Romance Trope/s
- Friends to lovers
- Fated Mates
- Opposites attract
Ezrah: Opposites attract is one of my favorite tropes, too!
Top Auto-buy Authors
Nalini Singh, Christine Feehan, Sarina Bowen
Top Romance Books You Highly Recommend
All Played Out by Cora Carmack, The Strongest Steel by Scarlett Cole, The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
Ezrah: I still haven’t read All Played Out and The Kiss Quotient! I’m so happy that The Strongest Steel is part of Audible Escape! I just borrowed it!
Top Romance Series You Recommend
- Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh (18 books in the original series, and 3 in the spin-off Psy-Changeling Trinity), PNR and my favorite book in the series is Slave to Sensation because it kicked it off and Shield of Winter (because Vasik and Ivy Jane is EVERYTHING)

Favorite Quotes from a Romance Book
Favorite Thing About the Romance Community
My favorite thing about the romance community is how open and accepting it is. There is a wide range of romance books: clean to erotic, contemporary to fantasy, YA to adult and yet everyone in the romance community can appreciate that some books are for you and some aren’t. I also love how supportive the community is for the people behind the books/blogs.
Ezrah: Yes, I agree! The romance community is definitely accepting! I also love that there is a romance book for everyone!
Romance Myth that You Hate
Ezrah: I ABSOLUTELY AGREE! I just hate that term! And I also hate the term “smut.” Gaah, it drives me up the wall.
SE White says
I love me some fated mates, as well. It’s an insta-buy trope for me!
Fated Mates is such a PNR thing – I really need to get into PNR!
Yay for fated mates!!! I feel like sometimes I am the only person who digs that trope!
This is such a great feature! Thanks for having me!

YESSSSSS on the “mommy porn” myth! I also hate it when people say they only read “clean” books…sex is not dirty.
Liz @ Bent Bookworm recently posted…The Necromancer’s Bride – Tour + Review!
ABSOLUTELY! Call them sweet romance, or closed door, or fade to black – not “clean” gaaah it drives me nuts!
I also hate the term “mommy porn.”
