My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a must-read for all budding romance authors, and it's a valuable addition to the shelves of established authors too. Rodale joins the small, but growing, list of researchers examining the attraction of romance novels, and I'm now recommending her book along with Beyond Heaving Bosoms, Dangerous Men, Adventurous Women and other recent publications about the romance genre and the romance publishing industry.
If nothing else, it's nice at the end of the day to read a serious, but entertaining, volume that looks at romance without sneering at it.
