Reviewed: How Not to Write a Romance

It's distressing for me to read and review a book whose only redeeming quality is that the writing flows.  My review of Her Scottish Groom on the AAR site is a case in point.

Maybe there is nothing new under the sun as far as Regency and Victorian romances go, but regurgitating an already trite formula and throwing in so-so sex scenes doesn't add anything to the subgenre of romances.

I hate giving D's or F's to books, but some seem to demand those grades.
