...my next romance novel cover post will be on Christian romances

Photobucket

Actual description: "Tanner Richardson, the volatile* duke of Cambridge, sees his wife with another man. Misinterpreting the situation, he erupts into rage and throws her and their unborn baby out." Yep. There's a romance scenario just bristling with promise. Plus, er, that's not exactly what the title suggested to me at all. I thought it was a novel about the tragic issue of flatulence brought about by drinking too much tea.

ETA: Read this stern warning against reading Christian romances: http://www.goodmorals.org/crystal.htm

ETA: *volatile clearly = complete maniac whom no woman should ever be in a relationship with. Unless he finds God and then it's all okay.

Ok, I saw the title and my first thought was "a romance novel about a woman with bad gas?" Not helped by the cover model's expression.

I feel strongly that not enough thought went into the choice of this title.

LOL! I've read all kinds of genres throughout my life, but never Romance. I don't think it's hard to see why.

What! You weren't convinced by her comment that " I should have instead turned my eyes and heart to seek God’s will for me, and my future husband."?

HEATHEN!!!! SHUN THE UNBELIEVER!!!!

From that warning against reading Christian romance novels:

Even now that we are committed to one another, the passion and romance that we feel and experience are far from our focus; rather, we have put much of it aside, seeing it as a distraction from the things that we need to be focused on right now, the things that will cause us to grow and prepare us for our future marriage.

That's going to be one emotionally fulfilling marriage.

I feel sad for anyone whose greatest sin was reading Christian romances. I bet she's a lot of fun at parties.

HAH. Sorry. Throwing out the unborn child somehow makes me laugh. TERRIBLE.

I like their advice to 'Flee fornication.' And for a good morals site they seem awfully fascinated by sex.

Man! Have you seen that among their abstinence celebrities are Jessica Simpson and Anna Kournikova? GREAT.

Er, WHAT? We all know how well that worked out for Jessica Simpson and wasn't Anna Kournikova sleeping with Sergei Fedorov when she was only fourteen or fifteen?

You would think that based on what they wear alone they'd be condemning them? They also have this quite hilarious comment about Kournikova "however her image lately has been a bit contradictory to this message."

HAHAHAHA.

WHAT SERIOUSLY. Are you kidding?

Why doesn't anyone ever ask ME to be an abstinence spokesperson? It's AT LEAST AS LIKELY.

Yes. I wondered how he did that myself. Surely it would be easier to wait until it was born and toss it out onto the snowy streets. I also bet it would be more satisfying.

thoughts to dance through my head

It made her have THOUGHTS. We can't be having that!

Much better for her to get down on her knees and serve that godly young man.

Thinking leads to fornication! And fornication leads to robbery, murder, and evil, evil things. IT'S ALL IN THE BIBLE!!!!!!

I am shocked — SHOCKED — that you would take my comment in such a filthy, ungodly sort of way.

He tried hard to keep the unborn baby and throw her out, but it just didn't work. Bitch.

I just got the headline "Microsoft Waits For Formal Refusal from Yahoo."

I hope there was tea.

And those little sandwiches with the crusts cut off. And miniature cakes.

Flatulence was my first thought too.

I googled the phrase and apparently it is a Biblical quote. A poorly chosen Biblical quote, nonetheless.

His first name is Tanner? No wonder he is volatile. Yikes.

That's as nothing compared to some of the names these heroes struggle under. I encountered a Manuel Manilito de la Cruz. With a name like that you are bound to become evil. And, apparently, lusty.

That sounds like a name of a cheap gigolo to me. The one who drinks cologne.
