Figgy’s #CBR4 Review #3: “An Impossible Attraction” by Brenda Joyce

In which I wax poetic about ridiculous (but fun) Romance Novels. Also: in which there’s lots of heart slamming and lurching.

Figgy’s #CBR4 Review #1: “Interview With a Vampire” by Anne Rice

Here it is! I’m fiercely determined to write all 52 reviews this time. Let’s see how long that lasts.

As for Interview With a Vampire…well, I didn’t like it at all.
