romance covers i have loved


The Italian's Pregnant Prisoner (Once Upon A Seduction, #3)The Italian’s Pregnant Prisoner by Maisey Yates

i have not read this book, and i do not wish to impugn it unfairly, but as a gut reaction to that title, we’ve really reached rock bottom in terms of “acceptable scenarios for romance novels.” while i am sure that situations exist in which it is not morally reprehensible for an italian to retain a pregnant prisoner, i am as hard-pressed as giles corey to think of one. but it does make me wonder what’s next in harlequin’s line of non-con romance novels:

the sheikh’s subway frottage

the billionaire’s sex dungeon for runaways

the cowboy lurking in the closet of your air b n b

the tycoon wore gloves

the CEO’s office bathroom cam

the cashier in the cowboy’s spank bank

the foreigner pretends there is no word for “consent” in his language

the uber driver

please continue to brainstorm with me here – together we could become as wealthy as a sex-trafficking viking.

    This KJ Charles snippet is honestly one of the only romance writers I can think of saying “No, non-con is totally not okay, kill the guy and escape.”

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
