Book Review: Diversity in Romance

Romance has moved well beyond your great aunt’s old Harlequin bodice-rippers. Today the genre is vibrant and dynamic, with heroines (and heroes) of all orientations, ethnicities, and identities from all walks of life finding love in all its forms.

Whether you’ve already read every Nora Roberts book there or have never picked up a romance novel before, there’s something in our collection sure to delight everyone.

Don’t see something here that strikes your fancy? Ask our reference staff for help or try browsing the romance section (located in the non-fiction stacks) yourself!

Too embarrassed to be seen checking out a romance novel? Don’t be! Librarians don’t judge and our lips stay firmly sealed— so read as you please.
