Fangirl Fridays — Historical bodice rippers to Urban Fantasy. I thought it would be fun to compare them to my favorites now — maybe find some commonalities, or just thank my lucky stars that the genre evolved. Not at all my usual genre. I grew up on dystopian sci-fi and fantasy, then spent four years majoring in English Lit. Shortly after I graduated from college, I noticed my mother reading this. I absolutely laughed my arse off. Similar characters and stories.
The term bodice ripper may inflame your passions in a bad way, or in a good way! Some are entertaining and some show how much the genre has transformed. This was my first romance novel. The romance begins with a rape!?! They are forced to marry.
