We’re talking about Books That Make You Fall in Love with New Historical Romance

The evolution of romance novels has been a long one since your mother’s paperbacks. Today’s reader enjoys so many different subgenres that offer so many varied ways of exploring love, relationships and sex. Through it all, though, one message often echoes strong with present-day romance fans: real love takes courage.

Clyve Rose is a renowned romance author, and one of those now innovating the genre. While she believes love exists, and that it’s a adventure, she cautions that the adventure can often be hellish – but that’s exactly where the courage comes in.

Clyve has been writing historical romance for the better part of twenty years. One of her novels was longlisted for a 2010 Hachette Award for Fiction, and her paranormal short story, “The One Below”, is a Sexy Scribbles award-winning piece.
