I'm a retired English teacher who taught as much British history as British literature. Since I loved BEOWULF and all the "old stuff'" I've always loved adventure (and so did my students). Now I read mostly for fun, and I enjoy reading historyical and contemporary action romance books. Kat Martin is an author I discovered this year. I have bought several of her previous titles and each of her "Against ..." series. They are all good and her writing gets better and better. I will continue to buy her books that have both strong heroes and heroines with adventure and romance mixed together. Her books are great fun!
