Cute, steamy romance with a diverse lead - a curvy black woman who experienced chronic pain due to fibromyalgia. Definitely worth a read!

The Illustrious House of Ramires | Jos Maria de Ea de Queirs

The book was published in 1900 after the authors death and tracks the attempts of Goncalo Ramires, last son of an ancient Portuguese noble family, to find his way in life. Should he write a historical novel? Should he pursue a political career? Should he concentrate on his business?
So much is possible but he struggles to make up his mind and actually finish something. There is intrigue and trouble but things never get truely dire. #portugal

BarbaraBB Great review. Are you still in Portugal? 4mo
Henrik_Madsen @BarbaraBB Sadly not. I have already been back to work for two weeks but I‘m a bit behind on reviews. 4mo

This who know me IRL know that I am not a fan of Pride and Prejudice and can not tolerate P&P retelling. Well, folks, I have found an exception! AYESHA AT LAST is simply delightful. Set in the Muslim community in Toronto, Jalaluddin does an amazing job of bringing new life to a well-worn tale (with a healthy dose of Shakespeare) while weaving in unique cultural details. #highlyrecommended #books #romancenovel #ayeshaatlast #uzmajalaluddin

For those interested in #romantsy or the state of diversity in the reading world, the Ripped Bodice has their annual Diversity Survey our for 2018... it‘s not pretty https://bookriot.com/2019/03/05/the-2018-state-of-racial-diversity-in-romance-pu...

jpmcwisemorgan No, it‘s not. Knowing this makes it even harder to take people getting upset when authors call for more diversity in the books being published. 9mo
Chelleo Sadly, not surprising. 9mo

I know it‘s 10 years old, but it‘s soooo funny and awesome! Every romance fan should read this. I wish they‘d write an updated version. It explains everything I love about romance, while acknowledging the cringeworthy parts with humor. #romance #romantsy #nonfiction

I‘m on page 2 and I‘m already crying I‘m laughing so hard! This book gets me and my romance loving heart 😂

RebelGrrrl It's sooooooooo so so so so so GOOD. I love this book a LOT. Also, fun party idea: scan a bunch of different romance covers and do the romance cover treasure hunt (you'll encounter the rules for play later on in the book)..... you'll all laugh so hard it will be the game everyone remembers for a really long time lol. 10mo
LaurenReads @RebelGrrrl Just got to the cover game and I‘m dying 😂😂 I have some old skool romance that‘ll earn some points 10mo

This book is delightful and funny and is a smart take on the genre of romance and has given me a hell of a lot of respect for the genre. It's also given me a game for my book group this evening as we discuss Julie Garwood's the Bride and romance in general!
