What does a romance novel do for you?

9 Comments

This post is for all of you, me included, that lose yourself in a romance novel often or as often as you can. Have you ever wondered why it’s one of the largest genres? Well here is my take on this.

A romance novel can take the reader to another place. Maybe it’s another country, some exotic destination or just to another time in history. You may be saying, well so can science fiction, non fiction or any of the other genres out there. For some reason a romance novel just inspires you to want more. 

Maybe the reader just needs to lose themselves in someone else’s world for a while. It’s a way to escape and what better way than to lose yourself in a romance novel. Most romance novels end with a happy ending and you’re pretty sure to have a better outlook when you finish.

Most romance novels just leave you wanting to read another one. Maybe you like the sexy characters that are described in the stories that unfold. Maybe it’s the feelings that a good romance brings about in you.

For me a good romance inspires me. I’ve been reading romance novels since I was a young teenager. There’s something about following someone else’s relationship and not having to worry whether you’ve said the right thing or done the right thing. You just leave it up to the character.

If it’s a good descriptive romance, you may even feel like you’re part of the story. Sometimes I’m reading and I get so immersed in the story that I forget everything around me. That’s what I try to achieve in the romance that I write. I want my readers to get lost in the story. I want it to make them feel better about themselves or at least feel better than they did when they started.

As I always say, this is just my thoughts on the subject. What are yours?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

  1. For me, it’s an escape that doesn’t absorb too much time. I love a good romance novel.

  2. Thanks for posting Stephanie hurt I am an aspiring author and I absolutely adore romance even if it is little. I just can’t read a book without romance in it, I love it because it takes you away from reality, it makes you wish it was real and the love the characters have you want it too. Romance is relate able as we have all been through that first crush, love or whatever. Keep posting and i’m glad you write romance novels 🙂

  4. Romance novels is escapism at its finest. They inspire happiness. Why wouldn’t you want to read one?

    • Exactly. I’ve talked to several people that just hate romance novels and I have to just look at them and shake my head. Everyone needs a little romance in their lives and what better way than to pick up a romance novel. Have a wonderful Friday 🙂
