Steamy Romance Novels: Now with illustrations

One of my favorite parts of any new expansion has just gotten an upgrade, of sorts. It's no secret that I love the Steamy Romance Novels that have been a staple in the game since Burning Crusade. Mists of Pandaria added not one, but two new selections -- although one of them, I'm In Love With A Robot, is too smudged to actually read. Needless to say, part of me has been wondering if the savage lands of Draenor will, in fact, contain one of these literary masterpieces for us to collect. I was both surprised and delighted to see that not only do we get a new book, but all the books in the collection have received visual upgrades.

That's right -- every readable Steamy Romance Novel now has illustrations along with the tantalizingly silly bits of story. That's some pretty loving attention to detail for what are essentially a bunch of vendor-trash books that most people won't favor with more than a glance. But more importantly, a new novel has been added to the collection: A Steamy Romance Novel: Savage Passions. And even more importantly than that, a new method has been added of obtaining all of the Steamy Romance Novels ... just in case you were missing one from your collection.

As far as I'm concerned, Crafticus is now enemy number one. For those of you looking to round out your collections before Warlords of Draenor launches, you can head to the Jade Forest and kill Martar the Not-So-Smart for a chance at any of the existing six books. The only one he isn't carrying is the Robot edition we mentioned earlier -- that one comes from Blingtron, and can't be read anyway. So if you're looking for laughs, keep your eyes peeled for Crafticus on Ashran -- and maybe, just maybe, we can finally answer that all important question, "Will there really be more to A Steamy Romance Novel: Northern Exposure once we hit level 99?"
