Real men vs romance men

Man in suit

I should probably start this post off by saying that this is one woman's opinion. Mine. And even as I go on and on and wax lyrical about the romance heroes I adore and the man who is the love of my life, I'm just one woman. And this is my opinion.

Will everyday life change future romances?


As we move further into the pandemic, and things start to ease in various countries, I continue to think about how all of this will impact the romance genre. I talked about whether it will impact contemporary romance in another post. But today, I want to explore some of the changes I've seen happening around me and if those changes are here to stay. Consider this a follow up from the previous article.

Review: The Queen's Flight (The Emerging Queens #2) by Jamie K Schmidt

I know I've added the odd extra post a week recently on Saturdays. What can I say? I've got a little extra time and the inclination to blog a little more. And I've got some things queued up that I've wanted to share. I hope you don't mind the extra post and enjoy them though this may not happen every Saturday.

For today's post, it's an old book review for a book I read a while ago and never posted. It made me smile and brought back good memories of the reading experience so I thought I'd share. And if you love dragon shifters, this is a good one.

Easy reading when I can't brain anymore

Girl reading

My poor brain. There's so much going on right now that I'm feeling quite overwhelmed. I don't post about any of it on Facebook, which I like to keep as my happy place, so only pictures of food, Steve, and all the gins and cocktails I drink. Yeah, we've a boozy bunch here!! I guess this bloggity is where I deal with and process all the big things going on in the world with a little bit of a romance spin to it because this is, after all, a romance blog.

What Helen Read #49: May 2020

Hello all. As I'm writing this the world is a crazy place right now. So much tragedy and destruction. So much of it coming out of the US. So sad. I'm falling back onto my favorite authors and romances for a bit of an escape. The news has been getting me down.

What about you? How are you doing? Have you been affected by any of the stuff going on? Please take care and stay safe. xoxo

Here's what Helen read for the last month.
