One of the most popular genres today is the romance novel. I've read a few cross-genre mystery/romance novels myself. Okay, maybe they were romance/mystery novels. My point is, romance novels are popular and I haven't really posted any links to them. Also, Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away. So, here are some links to get you started, I'll post more general source listing later.
