OK, just to give you something to look at while you ponder the question that really matters, here are Nate and Josh, two nice, All-American boys.
Nate (R) is author Michele Hauf's choice for Yank Who Really Looks Quite British, whom she told us about a few days ago when we were discussing what makes English guys look quintessentially English. She thinks he's got that Prince Will look about him.
Below, we have Josh Bernstein of the History Channel's "Digging for Truth," who just makes me want to shout, "SUCH a nice looking boy!" Our own Bella Stacy thought you'd like to know he exists.
So, here's my question, apropos of nothing you've read above, and dealing only with the fact that
First-Person Narrative in Romance
Drives Me Flippin Crazy!
I mean, if I read, "my womanly flesh became moist, puffy at the the thought of his maleness in me," I don't think Anais Nin, I think, "Nein! Nein!"
First person works for me in good erotica, chick-lit if I were it's demo, I guess, and other lit. But when I read the First in romance, I always think: did she write this in 3rd and flip it over to 1st to make it read chick-lity?
How do you feel about about first-person narrative in romance?
