A big handful of these old romance novels showed up in the library donation pile recently and I was loving some of the titles and covers. Today, I present for our Friday Fiction selection Prince of Darkness. Nice English girl Cassandra, with some pedigree and ability to speak French, meets a tall dark stranger called Elliot. By page 3 they are married. Of course the trouble then starts. He works too much and she is bored. Mean things are said and Cassandra walks out. Fast forward a few years and Elliot comes back into her life. In the 20 pages I read, Elliot is an abusive creep and from what I can tell he is “saved” by the love of a good woman. Yeah, Cassandra and Elliot get back together. Yuck. I think I will pass on finishing this one.
