"As a bookdealer I have found that many women especialy the young like hard bouiled crime. The older woman likes cosies. Very few are interested in Romance"

":) Well, I have a hard time identifying totally and in every respect with a male protagonist. Akitada is a composite of some of the good and interesting men I have known or observed or read about. Strangely, I also don't identify with his wife…"

"Most romance in thrillers or mystery novels are not very interesting anyways...kind of bing bang....its over. As a reader I need a knock out start, lots of action and a plot to kill."

"I second Anne's response. In fact, I will not read an author twice if there is over-emphasis on the romance or sex angle. I am looking for a good, well-developed plot and interesting characters. I want good writing and a good setting. Give me a…"

Dan L. Coleman replied to Anne Doran's discussion women readers of mysteries
"Good to hear. It does take a good balance of the sexes, without being mushy. I mean, there are romances with mysteries, and mysteries with romance, but if it's billed as a mystery, then any romance shouldn't detract from the story, plot,…"
