As an avid dreamer and an impossible romantic, I thrive on reading, writing, and inventing the fantasies of the mind and body. For me, Danielle Steele is an absolute genius. She captures your soul before the book is even open.
Even the mere mention of a romance novel, book or even just a topic conjures up images, scenes, dialogs and colors of love within my mind. The possibilities become endless where all is possible and nothing is barred. There is something about love and romance that sets my mind on fire. Real or fantasy makes no difference. The very idea that someone could experience it and live it beckons my thoughts. I am giddy as a teenager when I can get one of Danielle’s books; the titles alone throw me into a whole other world. Take a look for yourself Matters of The Heart, One Day at a Time, To Love Again: surely a romantic can’t deny that the titles are alluring, calling and even welcoming you to open up the doors to the possibilities.
If the titles are not enough to trap you in romance land, the scenes so delicately etched upon the covers (of the book) force you to at least read the back. Any one of her novels has the power to draw me in and keep me there until the very last word. As a reader, I rise and fall, hope and dream with each turn of the page. I tell you, it’s impossible to kill the romance within my heart and soul. Many have tried and many have failed but what is most important is that I have never failed myself. Just as in “Season of Love,” a failed love is not the end all of life, it is just the beginning of another. There is nothing to trap a person, mind or thought but the person themselves. If I do not find romance, then I at least find solace in the beginning of an ending.
Only in the use of words can one so clearly define their life, love and honor. Only within a book or another’s story can we truly seek a release of the passionate mind within us all. There is little in life that one can forever lose. Danielle Steele has never missed a mark with any of her books in creating, enhancing and delivering a powerful force within the romantic mind.
