If I Could Go Back in Time, I'd Love to Go Back To...

In my December release from, RETURN TO ME, my heroine has been reincarnated over and over for centuries. In every life she was subject to the will of men. She couldn't save herself because she didn't have a chance, didn't have power, couldn't break the rules...

One thing she learned in her current life is that finally, in today's modern period, she has a chance to survive. She becomes a self-defense expert and she goes after the man who has hunted her and her lover down each lifetime. No more waiting for her date with destiny- she goes after it with fists flying!

So I guess what I am saying is, I love the pageantry of many, many ages in the past, but I don't think I'd like to live in any of them forever. There's no guarantee I'd have money or status or power of any sort. In fact, I'd be much more likely to be a peasant, have poor health, and die of malnutrition or disease long before I was old enough to die in childbirth.

That's why I love romance books so very, very much. I can live through the heroine, experiencing life the way she does, and I can know for certain that my happy ending is coming before the back cover closes.
