Romancing the Novel

While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.

Sweet Savage Love - Rosemary Rogers

I first read this book 32 years ago and at that time I was infatuated with Kathleen Woodiwiss. I was looking for something along the same theme. Where KW's heroines were only ever with one man ( Of course there are lots of almost rape scenes where our hero steps in and saves her virtue) I was shocked when the h of this book is raped.. where was Steve?? He was supposed to rescue her!! Oh the agony... How many times I wanted to throw this book at the wall... Even my new husband (well now he is my old husband) didn't understand my anguish over this book. I even had a theme song running in my head over this couple... Tainted Love by Soft Cell. I still think of Ginny and Steve if I hear it.
