In romance novels, readers often have personal pet peeves and deal-breakers that can affect their enjoyment of a story. These preferences can range from specific plot elements to word choices, and they are highly subjective.
This review is of Tender Savage, a standalone Zebra Lovegram by Phoebe Conn. Tender Savage starts in Wilmington, Delaware, in June 1862. The book spans from June 1862 to September 1863 during the American Civil War. 3 stars
Wish on the Moon by Sally Wentworth has gotten mixed to low reviews around the internet, but it’s a romance I fully enjoyed.
