Researching for “Wayward Love” in Palos Verdes
Love Belvin is an author of contemporary adult romance novels with over twenty titles published to date. She prides herself on penning heavily flawed characters, whom aren’t deemed ‘fairy tale’ worthy or found in your typical romance novel.
She believes these characters are clients, who visit her fictional therapy practice in need of assistance to attain flourishing and sustainable love. She shares their journeys with the world through compelling and in-depth romance novels.
Her heart beats unfairly for an eight-pound Shih Tzu named Nyssa Marie, her first and last pet. She loves to travel anywhere tropical and/or where there is rich pop culture. Belvin believes behind every union between a man and a woman is a story, and she would love to pull the romance portion out of it somehow.
Love is a native of the New York Tri-State Area and now lives in the Delaware Valley. She’s an avid reader and enjoys dinner parties with her closest girlfriends. While she enjoys many things, nothing excites her more than curling up with a glass of wine and a good romance novel.
