A Startling Sequence Of Events

It all began 24 hours ago....

1.) Got a recommendation for Marti Talbott's Highlander Series. Enjoyed this immersion into Highlander territory, except for one small problem. It's rated G. Finished it by noon. Started to suffer from smutty-romance withdrawal symptoms almost immediately.

2.) Early evening.....Feeling slightly jittery and feverish, visited Twitter.

3.) Saw a tweet from Mandi at Smexybooks with the word "loincloth."

4.) Followed the link (like a lamb to the slaughter).

5.) Quickly perused the review for Island Heat by Jill Myles. Saw the words "Tarzan" "T Rex" and "hot smex." Starting shaking uncontrollably.

6.) Skipped over the "C+" rating, and clicked on the Kindle link.

7.) Clicked the "Buy now with 1-Click" at Amazon.

8.) Within a few short minutes I was reading about a Tarzan dude with a loincloth. Breath returned to normal. Heart rate decreased. Anxiety dissolved.

Time elapse between twitter visit and purchase.....tops, 120 seconds.

Conclusion: The internet can be a very dangerous place for romance-addicted gals with an Amazon prime time membership and a Twitter account.

Marti Talbott's Highlander Series I .... Grade: B  (Romantic Highlander setting, interesting characters, slightly confusing storylines, no sex. At all!)

Jill Myles' Island Heat ... Still reading it. Totally wack! Includes the Bermuda triangle, cavemen, dinosaurs, and a hot dude with a loincloth. Right up my quirky alley!

Wondering if there is a Romance Anonymous meeting near me,
