I read over a thousand Harlequin Romances in my mid-teens. Funny, I can't seem to remember any of the heroes. Yet I can clearly recall numerous heroines. Yes, I might just be gay...
Anyway, I was thrilled by the exploits of ingenues in Europe, nurses on New Zealand sheep stations, and aspiring actresses on the London stage. This novel is a gentle satire of the genre. I'm quite sure that Nick Frost was a hero I would have remembered.
