Book of the week? Wow, I;d be surprised to find such a title hidden at the back with the mills and boones.

Didn;t realsie such nonsense was still available in libraries to be honest.

Do you think anyone will own up to having read it?

It sounds like a typical Mills and Boon. Perhaps they feel that if they choose a book of the week from that genre then maybe M&B readers might be tempted to also try a book of the week another time and broaden their horizons.

It's actually a Sillouette, and the only two reviewers gave it 5 stars. The title wouldn't attract me particularly, but I do sometimes read M&B and consider myself to be widely-read. I wouldn't be snide about people's choice of reading matter, although I do struggle to understand why on earth people read those miserable childhood books.

pmsl - I bet it's cover-to-cover throbbing members and gaping bodices.

My sister and I, in our teens, once tried to do a survey on the best euphemisms for genitals in Mills & Boon type literature, but then we sobered up. I seem to remember 'tarse' being toasted loudly as a possible winner.

And from whence do they pluck the titles?

His Brothers Pregnant Bride

or

The Pirate's Vixen Lover

or such like.

Someone, somewhere, thinks those titles up as a job. For money.

I just looked at that Amazon link.

Do you think The Sheik And The Virgin Princess and The Sheik And The Pregnant Princess are part of a series?

Soon to be followed by The Sheik And Mumsnetting Princess?

Yes, is there heat suffusing at your very core? Does your body pulsate with longing?
