Author has written 20 stories for Romance.
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.
Update: I just got a twitter account. Feel free to follow me @Talia_Rhea if you so please.
~Due to issues during the re-write of Mates, I have decided to delete the story outright and start from scratch. It will still be the same general story, but I'm not going to keep attempting to polish it, I'm just going to rebuild it. Will begin posting relatively soon.
