More of Maya's books…
“When a woman reads a romance novel, she is putting her own pleasure first. That small act of rebellion is perceived as a threat to the status quo. It’s also why this eternally popular and profitable genre has been scorned, ridiculed and dismissed.”
Maya Rodale

“What are you reading?"

She replied without once taking her eyes off the page. "I am reading the sort of sentimental novel men dismiss as rubbish but could actually stand to learn a thing or two from."

"That's an awfully long title," he remarked dryly.”
Maya Rodale, The Wicked Wallflower

“I take it back. You're not stupid. But damn, you are insane.”
Maya Rodale, Seducing Mr. Knightly
