Audrey and the Maverick

I just finished reading Audrey and the Maverick written by Elaine Levine. As far as I can tell, this is her second book, and and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you're into historical romance, I think you will too. 

My first love is contemporary romance. I have to be in the right mood to read a historical story. In my opinion, they tend to be a bit wordy and heavy on descriptions, which usually slows the pace. Not so with Audrey and the Maverick. I have to admit, I did scan over a few sections, but that was so I could get to the action. This book kept me up until two in the morning, and that's saying something since my alarm is set for 6:45.

So what's your experience with historical romance? Do you write it? Read it? Do you have a preference ie. western, regency? Will you give Audrey and the Maverick a try? I hope you do.


  1. I enjoy historical romances a great deal but write contemporary romances since this is what my voice is.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Liz! If you read Audrey and the Maverick, I'd like to know what you think.

  3. I clicked on the book cover to look inside, but the Maverick wasn't giving it up!!

  5. Sorry about that. I couldn't figure out how to link the picture to If you visit or Google Elaine Levine you can get a summary of the story. Happy reading!

  6. I love historical romance, especially a good regency. I got hooked reading them as a teen because back then they were 'sweet' so my mom didn't disapprove. But love to read a variety of genres. I write a variety as well. My favs to write (at the moment) are historical and contemporary suspense.

  7. Historicals aren't all that sweet anymore! I enjoy western and regency, but don't have an interest in writing either.
