To escape to another time and place!
Whether you’re dealing with stress at home, feeling overworked or just need a little downtime, romance novels provide the perfect escape from the everyday humdrum of life. From historical to contemporary romance, from small-town stories to bright city lights…whatever you’re into, you’ll always be able to find the perfect story.
To recognize the love all around us…
Romance novels explore the love in all relationships, whether it’s between couples, friends, family members or random strangers. Romances help us to open our eyes to the love that’s around us and appreciate the people we have in our lives.
To better understand our relationships…
Believe it or not, romance novels are about a lot more than just sex. Romance novels give readers a happily-ever-after, but only after exploring the many layers of our relationships and revealing how the bonds we form in life really make us happy.
To give us a new perspective on our romantic partners…
Romance novels explore the dynamics that exist between couples and give us a peek into the minds of their heroines and heroes. They allow us to see the different perspectives within a relationship, and that just might help us in our own.
To remind us that happily-ever-afters DO exist!
When we’re going through a difficult time in our own relationships, romance novels can remind us that happily-ever-afters are possible, giving us hope that everything will work out for the best in our own lives!
