Musing Mondays: Romance Novels for Valentine's Day

This week’s musing (in honor of St. Valentines Day) asks two questions, but you only need to answer one…
If you read romance novels, answer this question:
Who are your favorite “romance” authors? Why?

If you do NOT read romance novels, answer this question instead:
Do you read love-themed books in honor of Valentine’s Day? Or, Valentine’s Day books, specifically? If so, give us some examples! If not, why not?

I read romance novels when I was a teenager for fun but I haven't in years; just not my thing. Yesterday I talked a little bit about some of my favorite literary love stories like The English Patient and Jane Eyre and while I love love stories, I don't read love-themed books in honor of Valentine's Day per se, but only because I don't generally do the whole seasonal-theme-read thing in general.  I don't really have a good reason why- just not a habit I've ever gotten into!

Movies are a different story and I do plan on watching a romantic movie this evening. You can visit my movie blog to see my post on great movies for Valentine's Day.
