Ranking My Favorite Romance Series on the Scoville Scale of Spiciness

This week, a friend of mine was asking what I was reading. I’ve been in reading rut all year almost and it’s been a little tough. However, usually I pick up romance books to get me back into the habit of reading after a slump. I explained to this friend that I rank books on a level of spiciness.

So my brother and I left to visit our parents out-of-state. Thankfully, my dad is doing well and on the mend. This post is about the books I read while dealing with my dad’s open heart surgery.
