Welcome to the first installment of Bad Romance, a feature that you crazy bunch chose over other, less-silly ones. In this spot, you can follow along as I read, well, bad romance novels and give my insightful feedback on them. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll hurl. And I do recommend listening to the song as you go.
The selected title this week is Taming His Viking Woman, by Michelle Styles, chosen because come on, look at that title! It’s part of the Harlequin “Historical” line, so that means no time-travelling lairds or hunky special forces teams. No, just good, old-fashioned Vikings and good, old-fashioned bodice-ripping (literally) romance. The book is fifteen chapters, but today we’ll just be doing the first one to lay the ground work in. Strap yourselves in, lads and lasses, because we’re off to the races!
