I have hundreds of books in my house & so does my mom. She is one of 9 kids (Catholic) and her & her sisters all swap books. She had a bunch that she was going to take to Salvation Army, but I took them to post.
Somone in my mom's family likes the uh historical romance genre. I have never in my life seen so many ripped bodices. Words like flame-haired, merciless, stallion, aristocrat & desire are tossed around the way we use words like the & have.
What really gets me though are the names. Here are just a few of my personal favorites. Fleur Toogood & Rafe McIntyre. How about Gem McBride & Chase Dupre, Lady Regina Termaine & Viscount Draker, or Lady Adriana Sutton & Colton Wyndham. The last one is a Kathleen E. Woodiwiss book called The Reluctant Suitor, which is described on the back cover as “Genteelly Steamy!”
Another favorite is Sweet Velvet Passion featuring Silly Southern Minx, Velvet McBride & Backwoods Yankee Buck, J. Eliot Cutter
Lake Emerson, the lusty liontamer & his woman Clover Sinclair in Midnight Ecstasy.
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I found the holy grail of trashy romance novels. Behold the cover of Savage Thunder featuring none other than Fabio himself!
Fabio is an Native American in this book, so note how they cleverly made his long flowing hair black. Best of all is the name of the character that Fabio represents on the cover. "Colt Thunder" and to think that I settled for John & Jack when naming my sons. *sigh*
