KFC releasing steamy romance novel in honor of Mother's Day

An 83-page romance novella called "Tender Wings of Desire"


It's a real page turner... but try not to get the pages greasy. 

In celebration of KFC's biggest sales day of the year, Mother's Day, they have released a free 96-page novella on Amazon entitled "Tender Wings of Desire,” which tells the fictional story of Harland Sanders’ courtship of a young Victorian Lady.

“Paired with a $20 Fill Up featuring KFC's Extra Crispy Chicken, mothers can finally get what they want this year — a family meal they don't have to cook, and some alone time with a captivating novella,” the company wrote of their “ultimate Mother’s Day gift” in a press release.

According to CNN Money, KFC claims that its sales spike by about 40 percent every Mother’s Day, making that special occasion the company’s best-selling day of the year. The company says it sells some 6.5 million pieces of chicken to some 380,000 families on Mother’s Day.

The best part is, people are reading the book... and loving it! One Amazon review reads, "Downloaded this out of curiosity, and loved it. It was so much better then I thought it would be. If you want a great quick and fun read this is it. Who knew the colonel was such a stud?"
