This week I took a break from reading real-life, serious books. I read a romance novel. I'm not a huge fan of romance novels. There is a particular genre of romance novels though that I love. It is the kind of romance where due to some overriding circumstance the bride and groom HAVE to marry each other, and they fall in love after being married. I think one reason these appeal to me is because the focus becomes more the character of the bride and groom than their looks. I've read several of these based on different time periods and different locations. I think my favourite has been The Knight and the Dove by Lori Wick. Another favourite by the same author is The Princess. The one I read this week is Rocky Mountain Oasis by Lynette Bonner.
