I've had an overwhelming desire to read a good romance written by a man and I finally found one I thought I could enjoy.  Has anybody read this?  It got great reviews.

I skimmed it years and years ago, don't really remember much. His book, The Collecter, is excellent -- not a romance except possibly in the most freaky definition of the word.

I would recommend Indiscretion by Jude Morgan, except I know you're not hot on the sex-free books. :-)

I read French Lieutenant and loved it.  Loved the movie, too, which is rare.
