I love to read romances and a free one for my Kindle is irresistible. If you don’t have Kindle you can download the application to your desktop and read books there. In general what gets me interested in a romance is a strong woman who is living her life to the fullest and a handsome hot man who is strong honorable and able to jump in for all the wrong or right reasons. It has to have a happy ending too!
