I love books! I also write them. FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec.
Meredith Duran continues to be one of my very favorite romance authors writing today. She is a brilliant writer, and this book was amazing. I think I cried about four or five times. And it was wonderful to see a Cinderella/My Fair Lady story that really explored what it would be like to move from rags to riches--the bad as well as the good.
