Confession: I think I may become a fan of mass market historical romance novels, thanks to Maya Rodale. I'm usually a bit of a book snob and turn my nose up novels like this, but I read A Tale of Two Lovers because I was directed to an interesting and intelligent post on Rodale's website -- Dangerous Books for Girls: The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels, Explained
I figured I'd give one of Rodale's novels a read. Parts of the book and the writing can be repetitive, but overall, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The plot is entertaining, with genuinely funny moments and the characters are good. The heroine, Lady Somerset, isn't a fainting maiden, but a strong woman with writing ambitions. Ultimately she gets everything that she wants, and what's not to like about that? It's a quick read, too, so I'll probably end up reading the rest of the Writing Girls series.
