Reviews

"Finally, a true and insightful history of the romance novel. This book establishes the historical legitimacy of an important literary genre."--Jayne Ann Krentz


"Regis sets out to analyse the formal features and literary history of this much-maligned genre. . . . A thorough, sensible, and partisan book, arguing for romantic fiction as a genre that celebrates freedom of choice."--Times Literary Supplement


"Useful to those interested in the form and integrity of romance fiction, this volume joins such noteworthy examinations of the romance as Tania Modleski's Loving with a Vengeance and Janice Radway's Reading the Romance."--Choice
