    Hey, I'm romantic.

    I'm writing something of a romance novel. It might fit into that genre. I call it The Swan Society.

    I like swans. I'm not much of a romance reader. I don't even write it very well. I wrote a sex scene once and gave myself a hernia laughing.

    My mother used to read Harlequin romances. When I was eight or nine, I read a few and was appalled to find the only variances were the names and occupations of the characters. It was always boy meets girl. Boy and girl immediately dislike each other (but the sparks are unmistakeable). Boy and girl spend most of the book misunderstanding each other until the end when they finally acknowledge each other's love and embrace. The end.

    Tho' I understand these days they're allowed to make love - discreetly.

    Frank, you just described the Mills and Boon plot perfectly (and succinctly). Although, I can tell you from a recent- very slow- night shift, that the sex is not so discrete anymore. I was shocked. Old ladies read M & B all the time in hospital and I actually read the line: 'sheathed to the hilt' in this one.

    Maybe that's why the old ladies read it..?

    My personal favorite bad romance novel line is, "They pleasured each other."
