Lemme guess -- it's snowing up your way.

I don't know what it is with romance books that the male lead always seems to be a borderline sexual predator. 😧 I guess it's because they are trying to make him as 'alpha male' as possible, but it always seems to skew off into slightly disturbing territory. 

It's a similar reason why I hate most rom-coms, the male lead is 100% jerk most of the time, and the woman is often 'unique and quirky' to the point that she clearly needs psychiatric help. 

If by "romance books" you mean what's sold in the bookstore aisle marked "Romance," it finally dawned on me a few years back that those are basically porn, the women's equivalent to Playboy magazine.  So I would assume (haven't worked up the courage to check) that there are quite a few mild rape fantasies, BDSM, and the like -- the sort of stuff that's titillating to read about in the safety of one's own privacy, even though the reader would be utterly terrified if it actually happened to her.

As for the rom-coms, that's just Sturgeon's Law in action again:  90% of everything is crap.

Does it matter? But yeah, fish & chips. It was terribly difficult getting them in the syringe though.

🤣 Did you use a blender? Or mash by hand?

Blender works far better for me.  (Mashing, or even pushing through a strainer, leaves somewhat larger particles that clog the syringe.)  And you gotta add a little water, of course.

Mortar & pestle of course.

Why of course -- how very scientific of you!

Thank Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. They pretty much created the mould that is continued to this day. And in fairness Fielding and Wodehouse have a lot to answer for as well.

But those alpha males of Austen and the Brontes, while emotionally domineering perhaps, never had inappropriate physical contact with the object of their desire.  Not even Heathcliff . .unless there was some rolling around on the moors that didn't actually make it into the manuscript.  Miss Bennet and Mr. Darcy take their sparring from an earlier prototype, the basic handbook for all rom-coms in centuries to follow, 'Much Ado About Nothing' by Will Shakespeare.  Lots of arguing and sublimated sexual frustration inherent in that too, but no inappropriate touching.  Miss Cathy Earnshaw definitely earns the Gaslighting Wench award, some 150+ years before Margaret Mitchell invented Scarlett O'Hara.  Heathcliff was a borderine (or full blown sociopath) but he reserved his 'rapeyness' for his poor, doomed patsy of a wife, Isabella Linton.
