A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

Tentative Votes

on December 4, 2013

All About Romance is going to be accepting votes for their Annual Reader Poll on January 14, 2014. I find that I only gave 7 2013 books a 4 1/2 – 5 star rating, so I don’t have a lot to choose from. I’m dipping some into 4 stars books. Any suggestions for missing categories?
