    A trashy romance novel that is clearly Not Safe For Cats, if Puck’s reaction is any indication! Hmph.

    Lupin and Elvis have the right idea.

    Also, can you be both “demure” and “feisty” in the same descriptive sentence? Those seem mutually exclusive. (Yes, I know that’s the joke here.)

    This sounds like a mashup of about five different stories I’ve read (or heard about). The only thing missing is the secret that he’s really a duke . . . but if he’s a Viking chief, he can’t be an English duke. And he’s a vampire, and she’s a mermaid, so the werewolf/selkie romance will have to wait for the next one in the series. (That one I have read!)

    In the real world, there’s a romance series by Sandra Hill about a group of vampire Vikings from the past who time travel in to our present. Most end up as SEALS, cowboys, etc. No romance cliche was left out.

    And … it was written by Sophie and Tommy’s Mommy, the Alley Cat Lady who helped save Beatrix.

    There are two HUGE lakes in the old west. Salt Lake, for those who like saltwater, and Lake Tahoe, the freshwater lake near The Ponderosa from Bonanza .

    One of those lakes could work for a mermaid.

    That is so wild, with every possible romance mystery element. It has to be a fun off the wall novel. Reminds me of “Blazing Saddles” Too silly and funny. Another movie that is full of disbelieve. It was fun to ID the different stolen plots.

    Andrew Sleeth’s comment just reminded me that there are two series that combine Jane Austin and the detective genre but my aging mind has apparently lost the brain cells that contained author names. But one series has Jane herself as a detective and the other stars the Darcy’s as sleuths among the uppercrust. Can anyone help me out and prod my memory?

    Horrible day yesterday. I was mowing and need gas. I plucked one kitten from under the car and placed him on the porch. Looked under the car to make sure no other kitten was there and drove to the store. Turning off the car at the gas pump another kitten darted out from SOMEWHERE and ran into the street. The motorcyclist TRIED to swerve but hit the kitten. It was still alive when I got to it but didn’t make it. I failed even though I tried.

    Today is Cupcake Day. Seems appropriate, somehow, to the theme of today’s BCN.

    I was never terribly fond of cupcakes—always got the frosting on or up my nose. Not being a hefelump, this was no fun. Since I grew a beard and magnificent handlebar mustache, they are … problematic. Cakes one can always use a fork—and there is more of them. One cupcake, after all, is never enough. And if there happens to be more than one flavor, well …

    Please don’t bring up taffy apples or barbecued spare ribs.

    There was one commercial confection of which I was inordinately fond as a child. I don’t even know if they are still made. Hostess™ was the brand, I believe. I think they were called “Snowballs” or maybe “Igloos.” They consisted of a chocolate cake hemisphere with a small amount of creme filling in the center. The whole was covered in a 1/4 inch thick marshmallow-coconut shavings sheath. When I ate them, none of it went up my nose because the marshmallow-coconut layer was firm and not sticky. Anyone remember what those were/are called?

    What? You really want to talk about taffy apples and barbecued ribs? The taffy apples should be obvious. Anyone who has had a small child swing from their mustache knows why. As for barbecued ribs, with sauce, well, just think of Chthulu having a meal. See? Cupcakes are much less disquieting for your morning.

    Ugh. I read a few romance novels as a teenager because all the others girls were reading them. I came to hate them. The women in them are usually idiots. The guys are all hateful jerks who suddenly become angels. Yeah, right. These books sucker thousands of women into marrying bad men, thinking they will change. And I’m sure one time in a million or two, that actually happens. The rest of the time, no. I was a 911 operator for the police for several years, and I know the result. Sorry if I found cynical, but when on a normal day, one out of four calls is for “domestic abuse” (which term always sounds to me like someone spilled juice on the carpet and does not describe the horrors I heard about) — and on family get-together holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day) the “domestic abuse” calls are more like 75%, reality becomes more convincing than fantasy.

    Queen Catshepsut the Golden: It has come to my attention that there has been controversy regarding the Royal Library. Elvis-Anum, would you please enlighten all of us here?

    Elvis-Anum: The Library is a repository of many papyri of rare and valuable information. What happens if everyone takes them out and reads them?

    Lupinium: Uh…We would all learn things?

    Elvis-Anum: But I’m supposed to be the keeper of all this info.

    Beatrixia: We can put some rules in place to make sure everyone takes good care of the papyri.

    The Queen: That’s a good idea. Puckmosis, will you and Bea start creating the rules?

    Puckmosis: We would be honored, Your Majesty. We should start by taking an inventory of what all we have.

    Elvis-Anum: Begin with the series of legendary loves: Romeow and Juliecat, Antonpurr and Cleocatra, and especially The Mewmaid and the Vampire Viking Cowcat.

    There seem to be a lot of romance book haters here today. And yet there are many authors of romance novels whose works have given pleasure to far many more people than just me over the years. Many of the books I bought I gave away. Some, like the novels of Jayne Ann Krentz in her three pen names (She’s a Seattle-ite, Denny Wheeler!) I keep on my shelves and in my Audible files and re-read.
