Someone asked me that the other day. What is it is about romance books that makes them so popular? I had to think about it for a moment and then it came to me, why do I love romance books. It is the happily ever after. It’s finding that one person that truly gets you and accepts you for all your faults. We don’t care if the book is set in Medieval Scotland, Regency England, The American West, The Present time, or the future. We love the story of how two people fall in love and start their future together.
