Ok, I got about two right on there so I guess I'm free to read all the trashy romance I want with no guilt whatsoever! Woohoo! :D

And I love this one:

"You know the difference between a rogue and a rake and you are not afraid to argue about it until the wee hours of the morning with people on the internet whom you do not know."

Too funny!

Most of those were a blank to me, guess I don't really read Historical Romance all that much!

I'm with you, SM. Nary a one!

I'm surprised there was no entry for finding yourself saying, "Oh, aye!" That would out me as a Gabaldon fan. :)

Hey folks. I am the author of the list, and I thank you for reading it!

You know, it's about historical romance, and really, regency romance at that -- a pretty narrow subgenre.

I'm actually working on another one for an equally narrow subgenre: Highlands Romance, and the common male epithets will all be there, including Jamie Fraser's favorites!

Thank you for reading!

Jessica

Well. 9 for 10. But then, I still have several more Georgette Heyer, so it's fairly certain that I'm not giving up my reading habits any time soon...
