Naima Simone is a USA today bestselling romance author I’ve admired for so long, and I knew we would have a lot of laughs when we finally got to sit down and chat. We had so much fun discussing the art of a perfect sex scene, which this book is full of, and why she and I are the perfect historical romance fans (spoiler alert: it’s because neither of us are interested in looking up the accuracy of the historical details, so we pretty just go with the flow.) This book is new to me, but I absolutely fell in love with it, and I think I might agree with Naima that “Saving Grace” is the Best Book Ever.
