  1. OMG, I never laughed so loud at a video. I stopped reading them at 15 when I realised they take the same characters, and locations, put them in a glass, shake them like dice, and let's see what story we can write for the next one.

  2. Johanna Lindsey has some questionable covers, that is for sure; but I love her work. It's wonderful. I especially loved Silver Angel. I just finished reading it before I saw this video. Lol. Though personally, I always thought Fabio was ugly.

  3. The amount of yaoi fans here or those that appreciate gay relationships, just warms my heart 🙂 So this is where the rest have been hiding!

  4. That first one could've been a titty-fuck. It still looked silly but it's possible that's what would get his rocks off.

  5. I worked at a publishing house once. Don't think any came from it, but I did talk to Ms. Krentz a few times. Lol.
