  • Incorporates discussion of the changing readership of romance and of romance’s special relation to women readers
  • Comprises 30 essays written by leading authorities on different periods and sub-genres
  • Challenges the idea that the appeal of romance is exclusively escapist
  • Draws on a wide range of specific and influential literary examples
