Robinson, LADY GALLANT (3)

Finished Suzanne Robinson's Lady Gallant on Friday, and was reasonably satisfied with how the plot was resolved. But that's not the most important thing I'm going to note for romance readers.

barbarienne had a recent post about euphemisms in romance novel sex scenes. Suzanne Robinson sticks with "penis." So she was obviously making an effort.

I didn't think the sex scenes were all that brilliant, but I am a cantankerous critic about those. She made up for it with some fun dialogue and a wacky plot. Definitely worth reading.
