Yes..exactly. Smile I read more like a realist..I guess. And I came to the romance genre really, really late, so I don't mind if something goes haywire outside the very small box that romance novels come compacted in. Thinking of death and all in romance novels, Julia London's book, The Secret Lover has a heart wrenching epilogue where the elderly hero walks down to the pond where his love (the heroine) and he had spent many happy times. She has since died and he tells her he will join her soon. Or something like that. It was lovely, and very different. She had died, he missed her and knew his days were numbered. Very beautiful.


I read that book and was left feeling sad. That's not a feeling I want to feel in a romance hea. I became more cautious when it came to buying London's books after reading that book.
