About Jacqueline Diaz
Old-School, retro, and vintage romance reads are my jam, baby! The good, the bad, the cheesy, and the sleazy! I have no shame about it; I love ’em!
An auto-didact, amateur historian, and reader of romance novels since 1990, I hope to offer a unique perspective on the genre.
As a blogger, you may know me by several names; here, I’m Jacqueline Diaz. I’m also the aspiring author of two works-in-progress, historical romances, The Savage Noble and What She Says with Her Eyes, which hopefully will be released in 2023.
This artists did some beautiful work that is for sure! I adore that Susan Johnson. The book is as good as the cover is.
I have to catch up on my Susan Johnson! I read seized by Love which is a great old romance!
