" Waaaaaaaay too kinky for me."

Chapter Two of The Perfect Girl is now live on eHarlequin. And the discussion continues.

I have to say, every time a reader adds "not my cup of tea," I think of serving some Earl Grey in a Trixie Delicious teacup! Is that bad? Or too snarky of me? (Robbie Jenkins made me the most wonderful set of necklaces recently: slacker, snarky, and sarcastic. I wear them together sometimes.)

Let me know if you think the story is way too kinky for you, will ya? Or any of your feelings at all. Harlequin is a new ride for me. But this story was fairly tame by my standards.

XXX,
Alison

I'd like to leave a comment, but now I've registered I can't find my way back to the forum, as other people were pointing out, it's too complicated.

I think there is a huge genre issue here - I wish Romance publishers would just recognise erotica in itself and create books for the depraved and debauched among us, rather than dipping their Romance readers tentative toe into the waters of kinky weirdness that is... mild power play.

AT - not too kinky - just taking too long - hahaha

Love it - as always.
Those discussion chicks are closet porn lovers - they are way too eager to tell everyone how innocent they are. I wish you could really monitor who reads every chapter!

Made me chuckle. So far as the male charater's dialog is concerned, I recognise some of those because I've used them myself in the past!
Congratulations, anyway,

Just right, I think. Not what I expect of Harlequin 1970's novels...but definitely what I expect of you.
Thanks for making Harlequin a label I'm willing to read, Alison.

suevb - yes! When I see Harlequin referenced in discussions it's always with a bit of a sneer - like it's Mills and Boone. So I think they're right to push their boundaries.
