We walked the cobbled streets of that enchanting city, and visited the home of the creator of the Claddagh ring. Ireland is a truly magical place, and Galway is even more so. There's just something so...intoxicating about it. And I got to thinking, "What would have happened if a British courtier was apprenticed to an Irishman?" With the rumblings between Ireland and England never far from the surface, it wasn't difficult to imagine what sparks might fly between them.</span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span><br> <br></div><div><div><span data-contrast="auto" lang="EN-US"></span></div><div><h4><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.?</span><span data-ccp-props="{"134233279":true,"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span></h4><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">I've always been a romantic at heart, playing wedding and princess since I was a little girl. I love the excitement of meeting someone new, and the flurry of emotions that comes with falling in love. I also love exploring the deep nuances of a well-established, time-proven love. I believe we were made for story, and romance is at the very heart of it.</span><span data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span><br> <br></div><div><span data-contrast="auto" lang="EN-US"></span></div></div><div><div><h4><span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">What book are you currently reading?</span> </h4>​<span data-contrast="none" lang="EN-US">I am currently reading <em>A Heart Adrift </em>by Laura Frantz, and it's amazing.

And I love it so very much! My family typically visits the Foothills Branch of Glendale Public Library.
