Miss Bates is a voracious reader and sucker for an HEA. She has a lot to say about the books she reads. Miss Bates writes mainly about historical and contemporary romance, “vintage” romance, gothic romance and, on rare occasions, crime fiction (if it contains “romantic elements”). She doesn’t read or review paranormal or New Adult romance, steam-punk, erotica, litfic, or women’s fiction. Miss Bates would defend your right to read and write them, though.
