In general, publishing is taking a hit in this economic downturn. It would seem that people would rather drown their sorrows in a bucket of Busch Lite beers than a well-written story…unless that story has lots of dirty sex in it.
While other companies are floundering, Harlequin Books is doing quite well. This year the Queen of Trashy Novels is celebrating 60 years of success, launching an e-book series and turning out even more literary porno. Today, there’s quite the selection of Harlequin novels to choose from. In the mood for a little intrigue? A little erotica? A little NASCAR? No matter what your tastes Harlequin has a series for you.
One thing that unites all of Harlquin’s books is the use of ridiculous titles. Scan the romance novel shelves and you’ll find cringeworthy puns, over-the-top lusty language and pure Velveeta cheesiness. I love it. Perusing the website (for purely research purposes, I swear!) was the most entertaining part of my day.
Here are the best of the so-bad-they’re-good book titles:
Up Close and Dangerously Sexy
Yule Be Mine
Hotly Bedded, Conveniently Wedded
Tall, Dark and Lethal
Desert Prince, Defiant Virgin
The Viking’s Forbidden Love-Slave
A Long, Hard Ride
Pleasured By The English Spy
Spies, Lies and Naked Thighs
