I’ve dragged my toes about it, but I’ve finally decided to join the digital crowd and try out some electronic media. I’ve started with some free checkouts from my local library. I’ve decided to call this series of posts Dengeki Love Stories, since most of them will be electronically formatted stories about my preferred subject – romance!
My inaugural post will start out with the electronic Harlequin Romance series. These are stories written by well known romance authors and have been adapted and drawn in comic format. First off is Marriage Wanted, a short story written by romance author Debbie Macomber. The comic format has been adapted and drawn by Eve Takigawa.
The Gist: Savannah Charles owns a bridal boutique and is a wedding planner. One of her clients admits that she can’t get her brother to accept her upcoming nuptials. Said brother Dashel Davenport visits the boutique in order to convince Savannah to help him change his sister’s mind. Dash is a divorce lawyer with no belief in the covenant of marriage anymore. He and Savannah make a bet that one can convince the other that their outlook on marriage is the right one. Circumstances lead Dash and Savannah to tie the knot for their own personal benefits, an agreement that is to last for one year. However, Savannah and Dash both realize that a marriage of convenience was not what either really wants.
If you’re looking for a cheesy romance, this is it. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you just want some mindless reading at the beach.
