Today marks the start of a month-long celebration of romance novels sponsored by Bobbi Dumas, who reviews for Kirkus and NPR. She’s gathered together a stellar collection of romance writers like Kristan Higgins and Katharine Ashe to share their thoughts on the romance genre, why readers love it, and why it’s important. In fact, Kristan and Katharine kick things off today with two short and very engaging essays on heroes and on how romance novels can spark revelations in the reader. You really should check them out! Katharine and Kristan are both hosting contests too, so be sure to enter.

Speaking of great romances to read, Katharine’s new book, I Adored A Lord, is out this week. She’s one of my favorite historical romance novelists, and her books are always at the top of my TBR list. AND her book is currently on sale in digital for only $3.79, which is pretty darn amazing. You’ll definitely want to check it out!
