Not everyone likes the same type of book, we all have the right to like or dislike a book, it doesn't mean that we are wrong or right...we also have the right to not finish a book too!
You can't judge a book by its cover, but a great cover will draw you to a book, from there it's up to the Author!
Lost leads such as free books, are the doors to discovery!
What is a Romance novel to me? It is a book, where the "focus"of the story is character-driven by the developing romantic relationship between the two main characters and where the goal is ever-lasting love. I prefer books where the love story is important but not all-consuming. It must not contain any explicit sex.
History is important to remember. Without History we would not have any present or future. Without knowing History, we are more likely to keep repeating our mistakes.
Historical fiction tells a story that is set in the past. Even though there maybe historical persons, places and things in this story the protagonists are "usually" fictional. Where as a Historical Novel is "usually" about Historical figures, but can also contain fictional characters and dialogue. ....in saying this, I have found the title of Hictorical Fiction and Historical Novels interchangeable at times.
