I know, I know, according to a lot of romance novels I’ve read, I should really be into shoes. I’m not. When I see a pair of designer shoes, I think of pain–both to my wallet and my feet When heroines obsess about shoes, I’m skim reading.
But introduce a dog and I’m there for it! I want to get to know the pup. I love it if they’re quirky, serious, bad tempered…I don’t care, I’ll read it. Dogs often steal the scenes for me.
And dogs help me decide if the man character are really heroes and heroines, or a DNF (Do Not Finish). I won’t read a book featuring a hero or heroine who doesn’t take care of animals (excluding rom coms where one character starts the book ignorant and swiftly learns–those amuse me).
I like cats, horses and other animals too.
What about you?
