If chocolate be the food of love, eat on! In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, why chocolate may be the next big health food. Next time our Valentine's Day special: two best-selling romance writers share tricks of t he trade. And, listeners share their true stories of love at first sight.
We begin with one of the listener stories of love at first sight which we solicited on our Web site. Then, romance novelists Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn talk with Anne Strainchamps about the romance genre and how it's changed from the bodice-ripper days. They days modern romance heroines are more like real women and men read the books for pointers on how to behave. We also hear a reading from "Suddenly You" by Lisa Kleypas.SEGMENT 2:
