Sounds like a crazy question coming from an author claiming to have written five of them. But that doesn't make the query any less valid. For most people, when you say romance, images of heart-shaped candy boxes, long stemmed red roses, and probably bearskin rugs and roaring fires pop into mind. But is that it?

Reasons why I suck at blogging…
