I'm having a vague plot idea sparked by mention of some sort of contest kinda thing for "paranormal romance novels"... but I don't, personally, read romance novels. And don't care to, I have enough sci fi and fantasy sitting around begging for my attention.|
Any particular pointers/resources for figuring out the tropes of the romance genre, short of reading a whole bunch of the stupid things? Other than, ya know, varying degrees of softcore pornography [g], I'm not sure what generally actually *happens* in a romance novel.
