0333 Hungry for Romance


Mills and Boon, Mills and Boon,
ravish me - but not too soon...
Boon and Mills, Boon and Mills,
steam my specs with bedtime thrills...



(M&B - publishers of bodice-ripper romance, with strict rules for their writers)

    Footnote for our American cousins: Mills and Boon are the hugely successful publishers of bodice-rippers and their more genteel bedmates. Bedtime reading for the single bed. The saviours of not a few starving authors, google them for further details.
    Chapter One. 'It all started with this poetry website I was posting on, not too seriously. There was this chap, d'Arcy, who wrote rude comments about my poems. But there was something about him...' To be continued. (Report) Reply

    I have to give it a 10 for the flow and brilliant simplicity of this one, Michael, but pray tell, who are Mills and Boon? :) Thanks for a good read.

    '10' for the hilarity, but I'll still take the cup of tea unless Antonio Banderas should be unexpectedly available: -) (Report) Reply
