In the earliest Harlequin romance novels, heroines were typically nurses and secretaries, but as time has passed and women have entered the workforce in larger numbers, romance heroines have spanned the career spectrum. Despite recent rehabilitation and merging of the genre with other genres, the stigma attached to the romance genre continues to be strong, with some dedicated readers embarrassed to admit to buying or even reading the books.
Some critics point to a lack of suspense, as it is obvious that the hero and heroine will eventually resolve their issues, and wonder whether it is beneficial "for women to be whiling away so many hours reading impossibly glamorized love stories.
Romance novelists attribute the stigma to the fact that romance is the only genre "written almost exclusively by women for women. Romance novels are divided into two sub-sets, category romances, also known as series romances, and single title romances. Category romances are short, usually no more than pages, or about 55, words. In many cases, the books are numbered sequentially within the line.
To write a successful novel of this length, the "author must pare the story down to its essentials. Subplots and minor characters are eliminated or relegated to the backstory. Publishers of category romances usually issue guidelines for each line, specifying the elements necessary for a novel to be included in each line.
Most recently, erotic and Christian lines have been introduced while traditional Regency romance lines have ended. Single-titles novels are romance novels not published as part of a publisher's category. They are longer than category romances, typically between and pages, or ,, words. Despite their name, single-title novels are not always stand alone novels. Some authors prefer to write several interconnected books, ranging in number from trilogies to long-running series, so that they can revisit characters or worlds.
Such sets of books often have similar titles, and may be labelled as "Number 1 in the XXX Series", but they are not considered series romances because they are not part of a particular line. Because the definition of a romance novel does not limit the types of plot devices, time frames, or locations that can be included, the genre has grown to encompass a wide variety of material and spawned multiple subgenres.
Subgenres of romance are often closely related to other literature genres, and some books could be considered a romance subgenre novel and another genre novel at the same time. For example, romantic suspense novels are often similar to mysteries , crime fiction and thrillers , and paranormal romances use elements popular in science fiction and fantasy novels. Contemporary romance, which is set after World War II ,  is often what people mean when they refer to a romance novel. Contemporary romance novels—the largest subgenre—are set in the time when they are written, and usually reflect the mores of that time.
Heroines in contemporary romances prior to usually quit working when they marry or have children—while heroines after usually have, and keep, a career. Most contemporary romance novels contain elements that date the books. The majority of them eventually become irrelevant to more modern readers and go out of print. Over half of the romantic fiction published in the United States in out of 2, books were contemporary romance novels. Historical romance, also known as historical novel , is a broad category of fiction which the plot takes place in a setting located in the past, which Walter Scott helped popularize in the early 19th-century, with works such as Rob Roy and Ivanhoe.
However, the focus here is on the mass-market genre. This subgenre includes a wide variety of other subgenres, including Regency romance. Mass-market historical romance novels are rarely published in hardcover, with fewer than 15 receiving that status each year, less than one-fifth of the number of contemporary romance novels published in that format.
Because historical romances are primarily published in mass-market format, their fortunes are tied to a certain extent to the mass-market trends. Booksellers and large merchandisers now sell fewer mass market paperbacks, preferring trade paperbacks or hardcovers, which prevents historical romances from being sold in some price clubs and other mass merchandise outlets.
In , mass-market historical romances were published, a year high. Kensington Books says they receive fewer submissions of historical novels, and their previously published authors have switched to contemporary. Romantic suspense involves an intrigue or mystery for the protagonists to solve. Like all romances, romantic suspense novels must place the development of a relationship between the protagonists at the heart of the story.
The relationship "must impact each decision they make and increase the tension of the suspense as it propel the story. In turn, the events of suspense must also directly affect the relationship and move the story forward. This blend of the romance and mystery was perfected by Mary Stewart , who wrote ten romantic suspense novels between and Stewart was one of the first to seamlessly combine the two genres, maintaining a full mystery while focusing on the courtship between two people. Paranormal romance blends the real with the fantastic or science fictional.
Time travel , futuristic, and extraterrestrial romances also fall beneath the paranormal umbrella. These novels often blend elements of other subgenres—including suspense, mystery, or chick lit—with their fantastic themes.
