Managing Editor

Vanessa is a writer, reader and generally bookish Latina from San Diego. If loving Agatha Christie is wrong, she doesn't want to be right. Vanessa’s penchant for books, travel and tea is rivaled only by her serious addictions to milk, avocado and floral lattes. When not reading books or selling them, she can be found blogging, working on her first novel or cozying up at a library.

This Riot Recommendation of favorite fake romances is sponsored by The Trouble with Christmas by Amy Andrews.

“A holiday romance complete with a surly rancher dude hero to die for, the hottest blizzard ever, a smart, sweet, slightly nutty heroine and all the Christmas cheer you could possibly need.”

– USA Today bestselling author Heidi Rice
