Romance Roundup
By Beth Stifflemire

Romance Is in the Air

February 12, 2015

Texan-born Beth Stifflemire lives in Austin and is a graduate of Texas A&M University. She is the author of Waiting Hearts (Waldorf, 2014).

Fun fact: Did you know that on Amazon’s recently released a list of cities that buy the most romance books, the city of Round Rock, Texas placed #9? Just goes to show that Texans love their romance reads. And in this season of valentines, chocolates, and love, if you’re a romance reader there are plenty of juicy options on the horizon to stock your bookshelf plentifully, from Harlequin romance to hot new releases in popular series.

 

Expect numerous sizzling new releases from Texas authors for your reading pleasure—from mainstream to indie, they’ll be cranking out this spring back to back. An avid romance reader and writer myself, I can’t wait to tackle all of them!
