On Romance Novels, The Last Great Bastion Of Underground Writing

Hi Maria, just loved this article. I have a vast collection of vintage romances and tend to prefer anything written before 1980. Most people would probably say I'm prudish but I find that some of the modern story lines portray men and situations that are in fact too real and rather sordid for my old fashioned tastes. When I read a Mills and Boon I don't want realism. I can get that just about anywhere but finding it in between the covers of my romances doesn't leave me with a 'Pleasant' feeling as promised by earlier M & B s. This isn't to say there aren't brilliant writers in the modern lines. Just that I'm not willing for my Prozac reading to be brought quite so up to date. Fi
