Some Happy VD Reading, Courtesy of Our Friends at The Pitch
This week the Crap Archivist ventures bravely into KC's used bookstores in quest of the much-maligned Harlequin Romance, in particular the specialty series "International Billionaires", "MEN: Made in America" and "Nights of Passion" and gleefully uncovers such undiscovered gems as Naughty Nights in the Millionaire's Mansion.
The quest has a happy ending (ahem!) as Scherstuhl uncovers deathless prose like ""For the next few minutes the sounds of nature at its most contented were echoed by the groans of desire from Tessa and Danny as they moved toward fulfillment" plus a sex scene that actually starts on page 69!
For the slash fiction fans among us (and we know there are plenty, judging from the comments on a feature about a certain yaoi convention), Scherstuhl throughtfully provides an excerpt from a story about George Harrison and Paul McCartney and the genesis of "Fixing a Hole". And, of course, there's this, proving that cheesy romance extends across all genders and platforms:
Crap and VD...what a splendid combination!
