In partnership with Bay Area Book Festival T.J. Kline (Heart's Desire), Julie Ann Long (It Started with a Scandal), Jennifer Ryan (At Wolf Ranch)
If you think Bay Area readers are immune to the lure of the romance novel, think again. Bring your own love of this hugely popular genre out in the open — or get a taste of it for the first time — as three very popular practitioners share their work and observations on the books that really shouldn't hide in plain brown covers!
