Not Contemporary Romance - Fantasy/Adventure
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review, which you can find below.
I expected the typical motorcycle gang novella that is popular in romance right now. However, this is in a genre all of its own.
Celia was born and raised in the desert by her hippie parents. Her life, in her early 20s, consists of running her family's general store and hanging out at the Rusty Nail, the local bar. (This is a 2 hour listen - any further details may spoil.)
As the only female under the age of 45 in town. It seems like the perfect setting for a hard-core romance novel. Instead Augusta Hill spins a tale of fantasy and a crazy adventure.
This was listed or categorized as Romance > Contemporary, it is not either. There was no romance and it is fantasy or science-fiction, shifter & magic. This mis-categorization is unfortunate because, as a romance listener I was disappointed. However, this would be a pleasant surprise for those who enjoy the genre of fantasy, outlander, etc.
The author builds great characters and the author narrator is good.
