The Global Boom in Bodice-Rippers

The Global Boom in BodiceRippers-


So, I see Addicted's cover in the top left hand corner of this Time Magazine article, but it's in a foreign language. Any thoughts what it might be?

Interesting reading, btw, if you're intersted about the global romance boom

My guess is something Scandinavian!

I was thinking maybe German or Dutch? but now that you say Scandinavian,that seems like it!

heh kinda funny they threw some manga in the pile as well :D

Charlotte Featherstone said...

I've never read a manga, have you?

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Well, the only word I can see is

Begär

And I'm pretty sure that's Swedish.

Jane said...

Kristina is right. It means desire, longing, craving.

Charlotte Featherstone said...

Ooooh, thanks, Jane! Craving works, so does longing and desire!

Harlequin sends us our foreign editions, so I'll be thrilled to get this one!
