Romance readers, I have a request!
I have finally decided to say “Fuck you!” to social stigma and the expectations placed upon intelligent young women that make them think they can only read so-called Worthy books! I am going out there and I’m going to read that historical romance I so desperately crave!
But, proud battle cries aside, I haven’t the faintest idea where to begin. The only romance I’ve ever read before (aside from Jane Austen, etc.) has been a few Georgette Heyer books that I borrowed from a bookshelf when nobody was looking. Much as I loved some of the silliness, the overdramatic plots and speeches and the swoonworthy heroes, some of it was Uncomfortable.
Could anybody be kind enough to give me a good place to start looking for silliness, ridiculous plots, overdramatic heroes and sassy heroines without the Uncomfortable?
