My name is Talia Rhea, and I am a romance author. I can't say that I remember when I first became interested in romance. I do remember being younger and constantly going through my school and local library looking for...something. I never knew what. I only knew that the majority of the books I picked up didn't have it, or if they did they didn't have enough of it.
Back then, young and stupid, I scorned romance novels. I saw buxom women on covers with shirtless Adonises posing in wind storms, holding onto each other and I turned up my nose. Those are nothing but smut, I told myself. There's no story there, just sex. Which is fine, but I want a story. Skip!
And although I don't remember when I first felt that craving for romance, I do remember which book it was that finally satisfied that craving.
Divine Evil by Nora Roberts.
Slightly dark. Completely titillating. Enthralling and passionate. The story I desired with the romance I had always unknowingly craved. There were love scenes, but I would never call it smut. It was engrossing and exciting and so captivating that I couldn't put it down. It was the first time I had ever encountered a true romance novel and when I came to realize what it was that I am.
I am Talia Rhea and I am a romantic. I crave love. A heart isn't complete without love and a story isn't complete without romance. I'm not a perfect writer, but I get better with each story. Have patience with me and give me feedback when you can. I hope my romantic heart can satisfy that something in you that craves.
