From a review of Elizabeth Hoyt's Wicked Intentions over on Dear Author:

"Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’ve been reading romances for too long. But I feel like sex has completely taken over character development. I mean, I like sex scenes, but if I wanted to read an erotica I would. What the hell happened to conversation? Tension? Building the longing? Where’s the freakin’ longing? This isn’t just a singular problem limited to this book or this author, but one that seems to have invaded every corner of Romancelandia. Character development is hard, but often the differences and similarities between the lovers are revealed in their interactions with each other. While those interactions can be sex, I find that without enough conversation and dialogue to balance that out, I don’t fully believe that they are in love. Does that make sense?"

Glory hallelujah. Someone just said what I've been thinking for years.
