Romance

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to: navigation, search

To most people, the Romance genre is about people falling in love. In literary circles, the term might be used to describe Speculative Fiction.

The genre is much more complicated than simply sighs, embraces, and bodice ripping wrapped in a lurid Romance Novel book jacket. A romance focuses on the interpersonal relationships of characters and how those actions, thoughts, and circumstances drive people apart and bring them back together.

See Love Tropes for many of the tropes typical of the Romance genre.
