Today we're thrilled to welcome Sara Jane Stone, whose Full Exposure was just released. Full Exposure is the first book in the Independence Falls series and focuses on Georgia, a recently-returned soldier who is struggling with life back home. Sara Jane faced her own trying time, but found comfort in a romance novel, just when she needed it most, and she's here today to tell us how and why an Eloisa James book landed on her Keeper Shelf. Thanks, Sara Jane!
Do you remember your first? The romance novel that drew you in and wouldn’t let go, the pages filled with tension, conflict, kisses—maybe a peek inside the bedroom—and characters you couldn’t resist rooting for? What about your favorite? The journey to happy-ever-after that you’ve read again and again?
My keeper shelf is lined with these books. But there is one that stands out from the rest. It is not the best romance novel I’ve ever read, or my favorite by this particular author. (And I’ve read all of her books.) It is the story that was there for me when I thought I couldn’t keep going, paralyzed by my own emotions and fears—on the New York City subway.
