Reading romances leads one to wonder about the inner lives of characters. So many heroines and heroes keep secrets, refusing to divulge them until their thoughts have rounded the bend almost as many times as a race car at the Indy 500. Even on the straight away, characters feel a strong need to ponder and delay until they bank another curve.

I’ll drive one lap with the character, but I’ll bail on the second. I’d enjoy more candor, even if  I know it will shorten books into stories.
