Molli Moran was born and raised in the South, and brings a love of all things small-town to her romances. She grew up with her nose in a book and her head in the clouds, and not much has changed since then. Molli found her own happily-ever-after on the West Coast. Give her Kay and coffee, and you’ve never seen a happier person. Other things she loves include road trips, the ocean, and Captain America.

You can find Molli on Twitter, where she spends way too much time (@MissMolliWrites). She’s not throwing away her shot.

I'd have to say Jamie and Claire Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER series. Their temerity, passion, and courage has always inspired me. I love them as individuals and as a couple. And the TV show is just so darn gorgeous. (less)

**Trigger warning: This post talks about the death of a parent (my dad).

 

 

Dear Daddy,

I haven’t talked to you in almost a month—four weeks without hearing your voice, seeing you smile because you’d made me smile, or surprising you with a peck on the cheek or a hug as I came in from work. We used to talk every day: about politics, about religion, about music, including your imp...

Reckless Miles by Claire Kingsley

Ridiculously adorable and sexy

How much did I love this one? SO much. Cooper and Amelia were perfect for each other, and watching them fall was super sweet. I love the whole Miles family, as well as Claire’s storytelling.

Sweet

This was so lovely. *happy sigh* Warm and real and intense at times, but mostly, just two girls falling in love and dealing with life. Not too angsty, a good pace and flow. Super cute.

June and Selena were totally adorable, as was this novella. It’s super refreshing to read a ff romance with no homophobia or tragedy—just a sweet story of two people falling for each other. Also? The fat positivity was wonderful.

Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Cute and steamy

So, this was absolutely adorable and steamy with so many great moments of lightness. Low angst and thorough enough in characterization that I really loved both Rafe and Sloan. And those kids. <3

Quick and sweet read.

THE KEY TO 19B is a romance novella that focuses on endings and beginnings. A quick read, I still had time to come to admire AJ for the brave choices she made in doing what was best for her and in opening her heart again.

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,

Jennifer Comeaux Saw McMinnville on your profile and I had to smile. My late aunt had a farm near Sparta, and I remember seeing McMinnville on the map whenever we took road trips up there. We got lost quite a few times on the mountain roads! :)
