Early in my life, I read romance novels. Lots of them. You know the kind...the best...the historical bodice rippers and Harlequins!
I haven't read many romance novels in the last 15-20 years.
Now, I mainly read mystery or horror or end of world by armageddon, meteor, aliens, plague, etc. Oh, yes, and spy novels...love me a spy novel. I can't forget science fiction or fantasy either. Fantasy with dragons is the best!
But, back to the topic of this post - there was a interesting USA Today article recently about some of the current writers of romance novels. My favorite line in the story is the very first:
"Thirty years ago, "Ivy League romance writer" was like "jumbo shrimp" — an oxymoron."
I may have to pick up a new romance novel or two in the near future...
