Romance is one of the most popular fiction genres. And why not? The God we are all restlessly yearning for is Love itself; marriage is the icon of Christ’s love for his Church. It’s only natural, therefore, to delight in stories that dwell on falling in love. Disappointingly though, romance novels have become increasingly pornographic, some intentionally written as erotica, and others containing that token, if not as explicit, sex scene. Romance readers can only devour classics like Austen’s and the Brontë sisters’ so many times before desiring other fare. Fortunately, we can partake of over thirty romances penned by twentieth-century English authoress, Georgette Heyer.
