Synopsis

Take a dashing hero with a heart of gold and a mullet of awesome. Add a heroine with a bustle and the will to kick major butt. Then include enough contrivances to keep them fighting while getting them alone and possibly without key pieces of clothing, and what do you have? A romance novel. What else? Enough lessons about life, love, and everything in between to help you with your own happily-ever-after.

Lessons like...

•Romance means believing you are worthy of a happy ending

•Learning to tell the prince from the frog

•Real-life romance is still alive and kicking

•No matter how bad it is, at least you haven't been kidnapped by a Scottish duke (probably)

Sarah Wendell is cofounder of one of the top romance blogs.

Sex in a romance novel is a tricky subject, but let me make one thing quite clear: sex depictions in romance novels have changed drastically, and the rapetastic romances are things of the past, thank heaven and all available orgasms.

“While this book could represent a celebration of all that romance can represent, that topic was covered in Beyond Heaving Bosoms in a much more authentic way. Everything I Know About Love, I Learned from Romance Novels feels more defensive, more exaggerated, more effusive—and therefore less cred...
