I finally finished What Price Love? and I liked it. Not loved it, mind you, but even with having to struggle through (okay downright skip) parts of it, I did enjoy the horse racing scandal storyline. The romance itself picked up considerably for me when I reached the “boy loses girl” point, too, and Dillon had to follow Pris to London. Of course, since this was Laurens, boy didn’t actually lose girl. With this author, it’s more a matter of boy laying siege to girl surrounded by the Cynster clan, and everyone else, mostly, giving him their full support.
Which got me to thinking about that list of things that are always supposed to happen in romances. I can’t remember who came up with it off the top of my head but I know I read about it on Teach Me Tonight and could probably find it there somewhere. But whenever I read a book like this, I’m always wondering if it’s the exception to the rule and whether anyone has checked to see if it fits the so-called formula.
Okay, just call me suspicious by nature. 😉
But, you know, it’s even worse when I read Krentz and I think I’ll read one of hers next. Maybe.
