Thank you for visiting my author's page.
This question is one I had to think about for a minute. There are so many good/bad and dysfunctional fictional couples! My knee jerk reaction is Noah and Allie from Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook.
I love their love. It's one of those books that grabbed me and left me craving that type of devotion and passion. I also love characters that love to write (the letters from Noah, Allie's journal, etc.) As well as a social stigma that leaves you rooting for the underdog. Although I haven't seen the movie, the book remains one of my all time favorites!
Of course I also love Gaius and Elizabeth of my novel, The Sinners' Club especially as I format the sequel to their love affair.
Thanks again for the question. Keep reading!(less)

Who was Ching Shih? Mogu?

Have you ever considered what it would have been like to be a woman in the 1800’s? Especially in a world mostly dominated by men. Life’s primal challenges, food, shelter, etc would have been hard enough without the patriarchal societies most women lived (and often times still live) in. I’d like to think I would...

Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie
"Massie writes a moving portrait of Russia's last tsar and his family. Rich in detail about this period of Russian history, and the prominent figures of the time, this book reads like an epic novel. Well worth reading."

Picked up this audiobook because the setting is Dublin, one of my favorite places to visit. The book is fun if not a little predictable. Definitely worth the read, great twists to keep the reader guessing.
