Lol. JE *did* start life as a romance writer, as you probably know.
I'd love to find some of her romances, or at least hear from someone
who's read them. I think the chances of any ever turning up here are
small, so I'd have to order them from the States. That would make it
a guilty pleasure!
Oddly enough, fate or something seems to want to fill my guilty
category for 2002. I went to AlexLit, got a set of recs (which I
haven't done for a while), went through about 5 pages rating a few
things - nothing even remotely romancey. Then I went off and
searched a few books and then got recs again. The first book on my
list *had* been an Antonia Fraser, The Cricket Term_, I think, but
the second time that was number three. Number one was a Laura
Kinsale, Flowers in/of/for the Storm (something like that - I've read
it, just can't remember the title exactly) and the second was a Mary
Jo Putney. How weird is that? Then I went to Amazon, and on my
books home page there was a big old bodice-buster cover picture -
didn't even catch the name though I did notice the "sensuality
rating" was a 9. Probably too much for me... :)
