Audrey and the Maverick

I just finished reading Audrey and the Maverick written by Elaine Levine. As far as I can tell, this is her second book, and and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you’re into historical romance, I think you will too. 
My first love is contemporary romance. I have to be in the right mood to read a historical story. In my opinion, they tend to be a bit wordy and heavy on descriptions, which usually slows the pace. Not so with Audrey and the Maverick. I have to admit, I did scan over a few sections, but that was so I could get to the action. This book kept me up until two in the morning, and that’s saying something since my alarm is set for 6:45.
So what’s your experience with historical romance? Do you write it? Read it? Do you have a preference ie. western, regency? Will you give Audrey and the Maverick a try? I hope you do.

    I enjoy historical romances a great deal but write contemporary romances since this is what my voice is.

    I love historical romance, especially a good regency. I got hooked reading them as a teen because back then they were 'sweet' so my mom didn't disapprove. But love to read a variety of genres. I write a variety as well. My favs to write (at the moment) are historical and contemporary suspense.

    Historicals aren't all that sweet anymore! I enjoy western and regency, but don't have an interest in writing either.
