Just as I suspected... Harlequin romance novels are really written by fat, bald guys named Archibald Trenblist under phony names like Cassandra Jenson!

An interesting documentary touching on the lives of people who write Harlequin romance novels, people who are on the front cover and the people with every day lives who read them.
