For some reason, mostly I have to admit, laziness, I had never enrolled The Cautious Heart in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited programme. But I was so delighted with Gamble with Hearts’ new cover that I decided to redo The Cautious Heart as well, and took the opportunity while doing so to check that little box that makes it available to borrow.
It’s amusing, looking back, to note that when it was first published in 1980 it was part of a line of books that were considered ‘a bit racy.’ There was sex before marriage, then very daring, and even worse, the heroine actually enjoyed it! I beamed with pride when my New York editor congratulated me saying, ‘you write very good sex.’ Now those scenes are so tame I don’t bother to list the book as having any erotic content at all. Of well autres temps, autres mœurs as they say.
