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.
