Jolene, Is That You?
I finally did some long overdue housekeeping over at the Upcoming Historical Romances wiki this week, which is how I stumbled across this little upcoming gem due out May 24, 2011.
OK, I could be PMS-ing over here, but is anyone else slightly turned off by this title: A Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your Man?
Not "Her" man. Not "A" man. But "Your" man.
Now my mama always said that any man who gets his head turned that easily by another woman ain't no man worth having. So I say you're better off without him honey! Of course this begs the question.....
Would you then want to turn around and read a romance novel about the asshole who dumped you and the stupid heifer he ran off with?
(And for the record, you know what I know about this book. No whiff of a mention on either author's web sites. Authors, while I have your attention: if your book is listed on Amazon? Yeah, you might want to put a little something about said book on your web site. Just sayin'.)
