I love Kate Holden. Her style is mesmerizing, the stories of her life amazing. If you are new to this author, I suggest you start at the beginning and read In My Skin first.
Kate Holden has lived one hell of a life, and as you read through her memories, you will live it too. The Romantic had me so drawn in, I feel like it was me walking the ancient streets of Rome. I was seduced by exotic Italian men right along beside her. I was also sad to reach the end of the book, I am hungry for more.
If you’re after some real escapist reading, don’t go past The Romantic.
