But I do (without even checking what had happened to this line of discussion): some minor hardboiled and paperback authors have dwelled in the romance genre (Tedd Thomey: "Killer in White", Norman Daniels: Doctor Kildare, Gil Brewer, Dan Ross as Rose Dana and other stuff, Michael Avallone as Edwina Noone (!) and other pen names.. even Stephen Greenleaf has his big romance book, the name of which escapes me). Maybe there is some connection...
