At its best this book was insignificant; at its worst it was incredibly offensive. This book is a series of essays about romance novels by romance writers. I have no use for this book other than as a guide of what authors I will not read due to their anti-feminist stance. Some of the authors seem to have misunderstood the term feminist and claim that they are feminist when, in fact, their essays give them away as strongly anti-feminist. I will not recommend this book other than as a counterpoint to feminism.
