What was the first romance novel you ever read?
As a teenager when I visited my grandmother I would often dig through her many, many paperbacks and find a Victoria Holt or Phyllis Whitney to read while she read her book. I truly enjoyed those wonderful authors, but it was the day I discovered the book SHANNA by Kathleen Woodiwiss on my mother's dresser that I knew I had found what I was looking for. The drama, the adventure, and of course the romance at the heart of that book hooked me for life. I read in between my classes at school, sometimes even during! I read at night until the wee hours of the morning. I was very upset when I found that I couldn't read in the car because my stomach would get upset. So what was your first romance novel? Did you know immediately that it was what you had been looking for?
