This made my entire night.
Oh dear hearts, find out a little about the author before you assume she's ignorant of queer culture. And never, ever assume that character attitudes reflect what the writer believes....
Well, okay, if all the good guys have one set of beliefs and all the bad guys have another set of beliefs, then it's pretty safe to assume the book is didactic. But not otherwise.
For breadth, some Amazon reviews of Carnival, which are (oddly) all positive. (That usually doesn't happen.)
Also, some Amazon reviews of A Companion to Wolves are in. Also, two for Whiskey & Water. And two for Undertow, including one I think I want to have bronzed.
