Yes, we are sure of it. How do we know? Well...
I believe that in order to scoff at romance novels, I had better have some grounds upon which to base my scoffings.
In the interest of saying "Feh!" and shaking heads in mild amusement, I will take on this challenge. I will acquire a romance novel (from the $0.25 rack) and read it. I will then report back to my readership on the exact nature of the tripe. I will force myself to read every page, and every word. No matter how disturbing the mental image. It's the only way to be truly confident in my "Feh!"ing.
