Romance Rocks!

Have you participated in our summer reading genre challenge yet?  This week we are focusing on Romance novels.

Why read a romance? The primary appeal of Romances is to the emotions. Readers feel an emotional link with the protagonists and are invested in the satisfactory outcome of their story.  Characters may be stereotypes -- bright, independent heroines pitted against strong, dangerous heroes -- but readers expect this and find satisfaction. Authors mayexperiment with characters, settings, and story lines, but the happy ending is sacrosanct. Readers don't want surprises at the end!
