‘Sophie and the Rising Sun’ Kicks Up Our Love for World War II Romances

in Romance by

I have a huge weakness for romances set during World War II. It may have started with my obsession over The Bronze Horseman (Best. Book. Ever.), or maybe after I watched The English Patient all the way back in high school. But now I am officially, one hundred percent hooked. There’s just something about the nostalgia, the romance, and the heightened sense of danger that pulls me in every time. Which is why I jumped for joy when I heard that Augusta Trobaugh’s charming novel, Sophie and the Rising Sun, was being made into a movie. Set in Georgia in the early 1940s, Sophie tells the story of a lonely widow who falls for Mr. Oto, a mysterious Japanese man…

Royalty, Fantasy and a Christmas Romance are Part of Our Kindle To-Be Read List!

in Romance by

Most readers I know have an alarming to-be-read (TBR) pile. Mine is mostly on my Kindle, partly because I vowed that I would stop buying paperback romance novels at the grocery store (yeah, right) and partly because I just can’t resist an Amazon bargain. Any time I see an e-book on sale, I snap it up, adding it to my ever-growing – and never-ending – list of books that I swear I will read someday. Honestly, I both love and loathe my TBR pile. It’s like a warm and pleasant albatross around my neck, weighing me down while at the same time filling me with constant comfort and happiness. But I love that no matter what, I always have a book…
