I don’t read the romance genre, generally speaking… but, the more I thought about this challenge, the more I realized that I actually did, it’s just that it wasn’t sold as romance.
But come on: Tell me that Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire isn’t a romance.
I mean, hell — just from the publisher’s marketing text for the latest edition:
“Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force—a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses.”
Sure sounds like a romance to me.
