like to read so I find myself interested in what others
like to read. My passion is romance, of course, but....
security guard I know was reading a
James Patterson novel--the 7th series of The Women's
Murder Club. As I watched her read she was so memorized
in the paperback novel that she didn't know I was standing
there watching her. I knew what she was feeling since
I had read the novel myself and couldn't put the book
down. I had to clear my throat to get her attention.
are loving that book," I replied.
smiled. "I am so very much," she declared.
you read romance novels?"
smile disappeared instantly and she frowned. "I
don't read those, thank u very much."
novels are make-believe and not real. Two people don't
meet across the room and its love at first sight. I
can't stand romance novels. The real world is James
novels are violent," I pointed out.
world is violent," she echoed.
shook my head at her---of course she was right, but
I wanted to escape into a world where love and romance
met. I choose not to dwell in this tarnished evil component
of Satan working its magic.
also noticed that she was still reading a paperback
novel. "I see you don't have a tablet,
shook her head again. "I like the feel of books,"
she passionately replied. "Don't you?"
upon a time, but technology is changing and I loved
reading a book on an electronic device where I don't
have to carry a lot of books in my purse, and I don't
have to wait for the mail to deliver them. I get my
books in less than five seconds, and I can download
about 50 books for my pleasure. I love my Nook
realized that change doesn't happen for some of us.
There are readers out there who love their paperback
I was still out on her views of romance so I challenged
her to some questions.
am for ten years."
did you meet your husband?"
saw him at a party and I knew I was going to marry him."
did you know?"
was just something about him that turned me on in a
serious kind of way. I just knew that he was my soul
called romance," I pointed out.
laughed. "Okay, you got me there. I was on a romantic
ride with my husband. He wined and dined me, and we
were inseparable. My body was hot all over, and I couldn't
control the electricity that embellished my body. When
he touched me the fire was burning so hot, I collapsed
from the inferno. I have to admit it was love at first
rest my case. You should take a break from the violence
and read a romance novel--you will be able to relate
to the heroine and hero eyes meeting across the room
and that instant chemistry that envelopes them. Is romance
fact or fiction?"
smiled. "Okay, I will read a romance novel when
I finish James
Patterson. Do you has any suggestions."
we were on the same page. "Maureen
Donna Hill, Rhonda
McKnight, and the list are endless."
will read one and let u know what I think."
and you won't be disappointed. Romance is the key to
the facts of finding your true soul mate. I believe
this totally. Romance is fiction when true love is not
the contributing factor and divorce is on the menu.
When you marry someone for the wrong reasons, and love
is not a part of the marriage, you are doomed after
the marriage license is signed. True love conquers all."
she said. "That is so deep."
smiled and went on my way. There are a lot of women
and men who don't believe in romance. They meet across
the room and lust is the key. I want your body and that's
all I want, thank you very much.
there are men and women who fall in love and their hearts
are overflowing with love ---real and honest true love.
romance can be fiction when you look at Kim Kardashian.
What was she thinking, was it a publicity stunt, or
she was trying to be Kholi? Did Kris play along for
the fame and fortune? Why?
romance can truly be a fact--when you see him or her
across a crowded room and know in your heart that she/he
is the one. When you know that the love is so strong
you can't live without each other, and you would lay
down your life. This is true love in a nutshell. I vote
is romance fact or fiction? In the security guard’s
eyes, a fact wins, and in my eyes romance is a fact
without a doubt, and Valentine Day this February will
prove my point.
a ride with me because romance will always win hands
down. Absolutely, it had already won. Just look at the
happy couples around you.
