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)

Michael the trolls read them, that is why one of them gave you a low mark that is where they get there poetry from Warm regards AJS you (did get a ten for bravery)
I've just remembered: our grandparents used to call such books 'housemaids' reading'..
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.
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. David
'10' for the hilarity, but I'll still take the cup of tea unless Antonio Banderas should be unexpectedly available: -)
