Here is the spam romance novel, which reads like an outline for a Barbara Cartland paperback. It's got everything!
A catchy title
An exciting and exotic setting
A sensitive hero, an innocent heroine
Conflict and misunderstanding
Obsessive rehashing of the past to explain a confused present
A resolution scene where all is explained
and the payoff: badly written euphemistic sex!

Firefly larvae start out their lives chomping on escargot, and then evolve into glamorous flying creatures who manufacture an enzyme called luciferase, which is all glowy and also can be used to tell if cows are sick.
Which is great comfort to the snails, I'm sure.
