Micah
+1 star for explaining a genre I am trying to understand. I also left this completely sure that I could write a traditional romance novel, should the need arise.
B.B. Morgan
Mostly about her books, what she does, how she does things, with basic advice on characterization and viewpoint.
Meryl
A very useful book for anyone thinking of writing romance. Solid advice from an Australian romance writer.
