So Sick of This in Romance

on October 30, 2014

“Marriage comes before babies in my family,’ he enlightened. [Why yes, this is Michelle Reid — why do you ask?]

Marriage–? “Oh for goodness’ sake.” It made her feel sick to her stomach to say it, but — “I’ll take one of those m-morning after pills that–”

“No, you will not,” he cut in.

She stood up. “That is not your decision.”

His silver eyes speared her. “So you are happy to see off a fragile life before it has been given the chance to exist?”

“God, not,” She even shuddered. “But I think it would be–”

“Well, don’t think,” he said coldly.

Yes, God forbid you should think, or get information, so you can make an informed decision about one of the most life-changing situations you could be in.

 

ETA: OMG, now there’s this:

She felt the muscles of her womb clench tightly as if it was acknowledging that it already belonged to him.

No. NO. Turns out I do have a line and THAT CROSSES IT.

  1. I din’t read all that many het romances, but I can’t believe that this is considered OK

    This is one of the reasons I tend to avoid category romance. When I do read it, it’s one of the ‘sexier’ lines, though even in those you can see hints of this.

    Oh, that makes me stabby.

  4. Miss Bates says:

    *shakes head* Tsk tsk … why do they have to do that? You can have a couple decide against an abortion, but why put it in those terms?

  5. Lori says:

    Her womb was for sale and he got the lease on it? Ewww.

Got something to say?
