I’ve been reading Marina Adair’s Need You for Mine, the newest book in her Heroes of St. Helena series.  The heroine, Harper, is constantly accused of “collecting people” because she is trying to fill the void in her life left by a crappy mother, who cared more about herself than her daughter. It is obvious that what she wants is someone to love — someone who will love her back not in spite of who she is but because of it.

I chose the Ella Enchanted version of this song because it started playing while I was reading yesterday and it totally fit the scene.  Also, I just watched the movie (for like the millionth time) over the weekend.  What can I say, the movie is so much fun.


Romance novels have been a part of my life since I was 14 years old and one of my neighbors dropped off a laundry basket full of Harlequins. From that day on, my nose was always in a book. I started my first review site in 2013, but took some time off for personal issues in 2018.
