Love All-American

School's out and the holiday weekend is here; time to celebrate your independence!  If you're like me, you've probably got a lot of hard-core idling planned for this weekend.  It's easy to forget things amidst all those parades, picnics, and jockeying for the best fireworks-viewing position, so I'd like to remind you of your most important piece of holiday equipment: a good blanket read. 

Choosing a blanket read can be a serious business.  First, there's the space consideration.  Paperbacks are best; not only are they physically lighter to carry, but they fit easily in a large pocket and the fine is minimal should you lose one.  (Hey, if you're going to be indulging in a few of Dorothy Ng's cocktails, it could happen.)  Then, there's the question of content.  You need something light, quick, and engaging, but not SO engaging that you give yourself sunburn.  (On second thought... perhaps you should just wear a hat and remember your sunblock.) 

In honor of the 4th, I've pulled together some all-American romances that would make great blanket reads.  Most of them are set in the good ol' U. S. of A., with a few featuring our brave men and women overseas.  If you enjoy category romance (the shorter, serial books with the month of release on the spine), you may want to check out the Harlequin American Romances-- all of them are set in the States.  Whatever you choose, I guarantee that the guys between these pages will make you proud to be an American.

Happy 4th of July!
