Reader: Amish romances are good bedtime reading -- even it they're not hot

Beverly Lewis could be Colorado's most successful author. Her specialty? Bonnet-busters, as Amish romance novels are called -- even though she's not Amish.

Since 1965, Lewis has lived in Colorado Springs, producing novel after novel set in the Pennsylvania's Amish country.

Two of her books have even hit the romantic jackpot by being reinterpreted into Lifetime and Hallmark movies. And she definitely has loyal fans, including Nplace:

I think I have read every one of her books so I guess that speaks for itself. Good bedtime reading, doesn't shake your nerves or keep you on edge but pleasant reading.
