Where Readers and Writers of Romance Come...

Copper BeachTechnically, Sam Coppersmith might not be a private investigator, but he is exactly the man Abby Radwell needs to deal with her little problem. An antiquarian bookseller with a specialty in paranormally encrypted texts, she has been receiving anonymous notes that threaten to disclose secrets from her past unless Abby agrees to find a certain book for the blackmailer. Sam, an expert in rare minerals and paranormally charged crystals, is more than willing to take on the assignment, especially since he believes the book the blackmailer wants is the very same lab notebook his family has been trying to keep off the market (and out of the hands of crazies) for decades. However, things quickly become complicated between the two as Sam and Abby realize their simple business relationship is turning into something much more personal.

AYL Update

Hello All Ye Romance Readers!

It's been a long time since I've posted and I apologize for my neglect.  I offer, as my poor excuse, the fact that I'm currently writing my first historical romance.  Yay!  It's time consuming to say the least, and with one thing and another I've not been able to invest in the site.  I'd like to promise that I will get back on track soon, but I'd rather not make promises I can't keep.  I will say that for now I can promise to post at least one article and review a month, for the remainder of the year.  I've been relatively diligent on my facebook posts and will continue to post book and author news as I receive them.  As always, feel free to send me your romance related news as well! I'll do my best to check my inbox regularly.  

Keeping my fingers crossed, if I finish my book this year (as is the plan), the new year will bring a lot more activity to the site.  I appreciate your patience at not having completed the Western and Contemporary sections, it's a very time consuming endeavor and given that I am the only administrator of this site, I haven't quite carved out the time needed to finish; BUT  I WILL!!!  

My reading game has been off since committing to finishing this book.  I absolutely intend to gorge on several novels I've had my eye on (taking recommendations as well!) that have been released and look forward to hearing what books are on your must read lists.  

The new year will also bring a "new" look for the site, so there's that to look forward to as well!  

Again, thank you for your patience while I travel this journey and hopefully I will be able to add my name to the historical romance section in the future.  Look for my next review before the month is out!  Novel yet to be determined but I'm taking suggestions, post them on the AYL Facebook fan page.    

Until the next time, happy reading!
