The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren made me a romance fan!

The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss was my first romance novel and I loved it ! I’m not sure it would be popular today but it was a sensation back then.

I love this question, because Romance was a genre I wrote-off for years. Then I read The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley and changed my mind!

I actually have yet to read a Romance novel, but l’m hoping this book bundle changes that! I listened to a 99% Invisible podcast on the cover art design for romance novels and the history of them, and that’s what made me more open to trying the genre.

Iam not really a fan of romance. I have read a few but they all seam to be the same story.
If you call Fifty shades romance, it was ok because it had a bit of a mystery to it. As long as it has thriller, mystery involved I would read it.

Gone with the Wind is the first historical romance I remember having to hide to read at home.

Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods made me a romance reader.

I read Kristan Higgins Fools Rush In for a library school assignment and got hooked!

I read The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks in like the 7th grade and was hooked.

I’ve been reading romance novels since the early days of Judith Kranz and Danielle Steele. The book that ignited my love of the genre was Victoria Holt’s Legend of the Seventh Virgin.

I won a copy of a book called Blue Twilight and I really loved it! I enjoy sweet romances.

Bridget Jones Diary got me into reading more romance books.

I can’t remember a time I wasn’t a romance reader. I looked for romance in everything I read…I guess I probably started with Danielle Steel in my local library.

The romance book that took my heart as a teen waa as Forever by Judy Blume, she gave me inspiration to write too. :heart:

I read Danielle Steele as a young adult and loved it. Now they seem a little formulaic, but the genre holds a special place in my heart!

It would have to be Gone With the Wind!! The most epic romance of all times!

I’ve been reading romance novels since Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind and Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice! Who could resist Scarlett O’Hara or Jane Austen’s Charles Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett!

The first one I remember reading voraciously is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang.
