Love Lora Leigh! Especially her NAuti Boys series!
I can't remember the first romance I read, but I know I am hooked! Thanks for the giveaway!-Cali W.
I like all paranormal romances
Paranormal romance got me loving romance in general.
I don't remember the title of the book, but it was one of those cheap Mira novels. It was about a rich girl who as a ugly duckling teenager had a crush on this bit older, good-looking neighbour guy, but when he came after a few years to visit her parents, she overheard him making fun of her to somebody, because he thought she still looked ugly. Which of course made her want to get back at him, so she decided to humiliate him by making him fall in love with her and then probably dump him, so somehow she got hired by him to work at his home, and of course he fell in love with this beautiful girl, except that she fell in love with him too. After some drama, I think it ended happily with them getting together. I'd really like to remember what book that was, as I'd really love to reread it.
After searching the net, I think I've found the title! I can't believe it, after so many years of wondering:) I'm 99% sure it was "Maid to Measure" by Roberta Leigh.
So glad you came back with a title! Your description had me wanting to read it!
Great hop! I started with Harlequin novels and I still revisit them. They were mostly romantic suspense. I love them for a nice, predictable but usually exciting and hot read!
I used to love the Harlequins! But the Presents collection became to formula for me. Love the steamy Blaze collection!
Historical romances set in the 19th century are my favorite reads. Thanks for the giveaway. Love these hops!
I love a good Regency read! Stephanie Laurens and Lisa Kleypas are favs there!
I started reading romance when I was just a kid. The first was a Lavyrle Spencer book. I don't remember which one because I devoured them all.
I used to read my mom's old romance books, and from there, I found paranormal and erotic romance. I have been "hooked" since I was little.
Nice blog! Thanks for the invite.
I love paranormal, but I read just about every genre.
I was hooked into romance as soon as I read my first YA romance book. Though, honestly, I don't remember which book that was. I do remember which book got me into adult romance: Pretty Persuasion. It isn't even my favorite romance now, but I still remember it because it got me hooked into the genre :)
I am sure if I went back and read some of those early romance reads I would probably think less of them. But at the time I loved them!
I love awkward romances. Its fun! :)
OMG! I'm 50 and you expect me to remember the first one?!? I know it wasn't one of hers, but in junior high (keep in mind it was the 70's and I was 12ish) I was a big fan of Barbara Cartland.
LOL!! Anne, I changed my question after seeing your comment! I thought if I am honest I would be hard pressed to name the book that started it all, too!
I honest couldn't tell you a book...it was back when they posted short stories in the magazines my mom bought...from there I was hooked.
It was a Jude Devereaux, but honestly I sped through her entire collection in about a week and I cannot recall which one I started with. :)firstname.lastname@example.org

Vampire romances got me hooked! Thanks for the giveaway!
When I was younger, I devoured Judith McNaught's novels.
Many including Margaret Mitchell and Emily Giffin.
I began reading romance a very long time ago and then stopped because it became dull for me at about age 15 or so; I don't remember what author really "hooked" me on it at the time. I began reading romance "related" books when I got hooked on the paranormal genre. Romance seemed to be a part of the story, so I kind of backed into romance, to get my paranormal fix. Now, I like it, though I still prefer there to be another component to the story, such as a mystery, etc. Straight romance still isn't my thing (erotica is a bit different, I must say...I've just discovered it, and I like reading it for its own sake). email@example.com
