This is just SO wrong!

Jenn/Me: I get to play Rowen this Saturday. I need to go find a good romance novel to bring with me.
Monte: "good romance novel"
Jenn/Me: Well... hard to do.
Jenn/Me: Entertaining romance novel?
Jenn/Me: I think I have one with Fabio on the front called "Pirate!" I think. It was in a bag of books my mom gave me.
Jenn/Me: If not, I have all of those Vampire romance novels to read and I'm sure I have at least one anthology of supernatural romance stories.
Monte: Take the Fabio
Monte: As I recall, the book "Pirate" is coauthored by Fabio
Jenn/Me: Oh wow.
Jenn/Me: That would be doubtly interesting to Rowen.
Jenn/Me: *face palm* I can't believe I'm going to have to do research on Fabio for a character.
Monte: He came out with three or so
Monte: all with him on the cover, of course
Jenn/Me: Of course!
Jenn/Me: You know, I've never actually read it. Now I'm going to have to so I can gush about it in character. My God, this character is so not me. What a study in masochism.
Monte: *evil grin*
Jenn/Me: You are being evil.
Monte: I just think it is funny.
Monte: You get to play a character who gushes about FABIO
Monte: That rules
Jenn/Me: At least, I'll know when I'm in character.

Continuing with the wrongness...

Ok. This is scary. I just went through my 800 or so paperbacks that I own and found 13 romance novels!

  • 7 are "Dark" novels by Feehan, given to me by my mom for Christmas. These novels are pretending to be speculative fiction with a horror bent but, really, they are romances.

  • 2 are straight up vampire romances, complete with vampire princes - given to me by my mom.

  • 2 are generic sff romance - one involving a witch and one involving a telepathic cat man on another world - given to me by my mom.

  • 1 is a 'historical' romance of a pirate... called Pirate... written by Fabio with, of course, Fabio on the front. There is no way in hell I would have bought this one. Mom must have given it to me.

  • 1 is an anthology of supernatural romance stories. It has Fabio on the cover. I will admit to buying this one. I think this is the one I'm going to take to the first Heirs game. I just can't bring myself to read the Pirate one by Fabio.
