Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance (New Cultural Studies), Doreen Owens Malek, Jayne Ann Krentz, Laura Kinsale, Linda Barlow, Mary Jo Putney
2 Doreen Owens Malek, Jayne Ann Krentz, Laura Kinsale, Linda Barlow, Mary Jo Putney Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance (New Cultural Studies)
U.S.A. University of Pennsylvania Press 1992 0812214110 / 9780812214116 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
186 indexed pages including bibliography. In this book, Jayne Ann Krentz and its other contributors - all best-selling romance writers - explode myths and biases that haunt both the writers and readers of romances. In this seamless, ultimately fascinating, and controversial book, the authors dispute some of the notions that plague their profession, including the time-worn theory that the romance genre contains only one single, monolithic story, which is cranked out over and over again. The authors discuss positive life-affirming values inherent in all romances: the celebration of female power, courage, intelligence, and gentleness; the inversion of the power structure of a patriarchal society; and the integration of male and female. Several of the essays also discuss the issue of reader identification with the characters, a relationship that is far more complex than most critics realize.

4 Jordan, Toni Addition
Australia Text Pub 2009 1921520272 / 9781921520273 Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
218 pages. Grace Lisa Vandenburg counts. The letters in her name (19). The steps she takes every morning to the local café (920); the number of poppy seeds on her slice of orange cake, which dictates the number of bites she'll take to finish it. Grace counts everything, because numbers hold the worlds together. And she needs to keep an eye on how they're doing. Seamus Joseph O'Reilly (also a 19, with the sexiest hands Grace has ever seen) thinks she might be better off without the counting. If she could hold down a job, say. Or open her kitchen cupboards without conducting an inventory, or make a sandwich containing an unknown number of sprouts. Grace's problem is that Seamus doesn't count. Her other problem is. . . he does. Addition is a fabulous debut novel. Grace is witty, flirtatious and headstrong. She's not a bit sentimental but even so, she may be about to lose track of the number of ways she can fall in love.
