[quote quote=6566]At least not this audience. I do think it appeals to the romance novel fans.

Yes, I would think that is true. Yet, I find myself very curious about what else might appeal to those fans as well. Romance novel fans (for whatever that means) aren’t typically drawn by what appeals to the male gaze. I mean, I suppose I’m questioning the need for skin if the underlying characterization of the romance hero is still there. Doesn’t a lot of the research say it’s more “tell don’t show” for women?
