I have a confession. I don’t usually read erotica/steamy romance novels. It’s not that I don’t read romance. I actually enjoy romance novels, especially romantic comedies. I just found, novels heavy on the steam are often light on the plot and I usually get bored.
So, when I started reading The Safeguarded Heart by Melanie A. Smith and reached the first sexy scene, I was afraid I wouldn’t be reading much more of it. (Not that the scene wasn’t superbly written. It doesn’t have to be my thing for me to appreciate the writing (cue face fanning).
Except, I did keep reading. And reading. And reading. Why? Because the plot kept me guessing and I fell in love with the characters. None of them are perfect, which made me love them even more. I finished The Safeguarded Heart ready to read the second novel in the series. It’s on my list now.
So, if you’re looking for a good romance, with a little intrigue and some extra steaminess, check it out. I’ll definitely be reading more by Smith.

About my Reading Corner:
There’s a reason this page isn’t titled reviews. I’m not a reviewer, nor do I want to be. You’ll find every work I write about, I enjoyed on some level. That’s not to say I will enjoy every novel I read. I just won’t be writing about them. My goal with this section is simple – to share an author’s work I enjoyed, so maybe you’ll enjoy it, too.
