Okay, so recently we had a favourable article which said romance novelists were nice (who knew? ;-)
And now there's another article in The Express (http://www.express.co.uk/comment/expresscomment/383201/Why-a-hint-of-sex-is-tempting-more-to-read-Mills-Swoon) which says romance novelists may even have a role to play in our society. Okay, so it's the belated realisation that there are sexy reads to be had that has nudged the latest conclusion but frankly who cares? It's been so long since I read a favourable article about romance novelists in a British newspaper I am definitely in shock!
