I'm a hopeful cynic.

Wicked Mourning - Heather Boyd This reminded me why I don't particularly like historical romance. The metaphors. The tropes. The imitation of complex grammatical constructions. It's damn hard to write a good story in this genre.This short story tries too much; it's nothing more than a couple of lukewarm sex scenes with some weak plot in between. And, on a side note, there's nothing wicked in the characters' mourning. Nor in their intimate encounters.
