I just stumbled across a neat website that categorizes romances into all sorts of different themes:

http://www.likesbooks.com/lists.html (scroll down to see all the lists)

I'm getting lots of ideas so I thought I'd pass it along... (hopefully this is not a repeat - I did a search and didn't see anything)

I use that link all the time, i've added it to my favorites after someone had posted it here. It was probably a year ago so that is why it didn't show up when you searched for it.

Someone else had posted a link to a website where you could check off storylines, characters and settings to find a list of books that matched what you were looking for. It would ask questions like the age group of your H/H, physical characteristics, amount of sex in the book, what era you like best in your historicals, the H/H occupations,etc. It  was a REALLY awesome website link to play around with, but the very last time i went to use it, my antivirus program popped up with a virus alert from that site. Just to be safe i deleted it from my "favorites" and never went back to it.

You might be referring to whichbook.net. It's a nifty little search engine. I don't know what set your AV software off. But I use this site often.

You mean you just discovered that site?  I've been using it for years.  Their reviews are excellent becuase there's a searchable database and they have sensuality ratings.  Also, after I won their contest earlier this year, I'm a die-hard fan.

Listen to all you women -- what I've learned on PBS is way beyond amazing!  Here's the problem -- I'm so into it, I don't get any work done!!!!!!!!!
