What I learned from this book centers on it being a "category romance". These are "series" romance books written to very specific publisher guidelines including length, style, and sensuality level.

This was a "Harlequin Historical Regency". It was a one-night read. First kiss at page 100, second kiss at page 200, major complication on page 250, happily ever after on page 300.
