I woefully short on books, so I need recomendations. Here's the catch: I like romps. If the book doesn't hit the ground running, I'm going to have trouble getting started. Sometime to catch my interest, keep me reading. I also like character and HATE history. Anybook that tells me about the long war and the dynstasty looses me instantly.
I really liked The Time Traveler's Wife. I also really like Wen Spencer, Tanya Huff and Charline Harris.
