#RomBkLove Day 30: Old School/Classics Which romances stand the test of time? What elements do you miss?
I came to romance within the last 6 years. I haven't read a lot of Old School romances and I am honestly a bit fuzzy about what qualifies. I think most of the older romances I have read, date from the period immediately after so I am curious to hear how others define old-school and what eras they are referring to when they use the term? Because there are some older romances that I am just scared to try.
A few years back I sent in HABO for honest-to-goodness bodice ripper I read one rainy holiday weekend when I was around 12. The awesome folks at Smart Bitches found it for me, but I honestly couldn't get past the summaries, to try reading it again. It was one of those rapey sagas with hero that actually lashed the heroine so badly he left her back terribly scarred.
So what do you mean by Old School Romance? Any I absolutely have to try?
