I wish for whatever form of super convenient futuristic birth control they're all using in the "in Death" books.

*lmao* that would be nice, wouldn't it?

I wish to come away with a super sexy british or scottish accent after finishing the story.  Then again, a damn portal mirror in my bedroom that allows  some hunky guy in nothing but a kilt to come through would be grand - I don't think my hubby would approve though ;o).

I wish for the hero from Outlander to find me, sweep me off my feet, and take me away from this drudgery of  a life. Either him or Alexander Cameron from Pride  of Lions/Blood of Roses!

I want Tonya's mirror and Jamie from Outlander to sweep me off my feet.  LOL   But I also wouldn't mind  one of those hot hunky SEALS from either Marliss Melton or Lora Leigh's series!

I wish I was in the Regency period and could sit around drinking tea and reading by the fire, only to be distracted by the occasional ball or picnic, lol

Ha ha, Samantha, I have thought that many a time.  I do drink tea and read by the fire when I get the chance though :-)

I spent a period of time after seeing the movie Somewhere in Time, wishing I could go back in time and meet some wonderful man.  This was in my teens, so I am over that now.

I did finally get that book off of my WL, but I haven't read it yet.  I wonder if that is considered a romance?

I wish for good writing and an exceptional story.  That's sometimes a lot to ask..............

Since it doesnt have a HEA, I wouldnt consider it a romance. The ending is different from the movie. The love scene in it is surprisingly robust though. I wasnt expecting that considering how soft-focus the movie was.

 

The only things I want from a book are:

1. the energy to have sex 5 times a night all the time (see Linda Howard)

2. immunity from all STDs and other diseases (see any vampire book)

3. the phermone that causes every man who meets me to desire me, especially the rich ones

I want perfect perky breasts and that pheremone that Jess mentioned.  I want the ability to go days on end w/o eating like the heroine's always seem to do.

I would like to lose my virginity in a romantic fashion to the love of my life. Since it didn't happen that way for me.

Oh yeah - I want to be one of those bizarre heroines that eat less when they're sad.
