The beautiful high-born daughter of an English duke came to America to take over her sister-in-law’s matchmaking business.

Will the enigmatic man who haunts her dreams cost her more than she bargained for?
The Appeal of Romance Books by Catherine Bybee
How often is romance a part of every movie, every song on the radio? I don’t care if you’re reading Stephen King or James Patterson…you’re often going to read a small love story in-between the intrigue and gore. It’s just the way of the world. I think it’s in our nature to love and be loved so why not celebrate that with our literature?
Romance novels hold more appeal than ever with all the sub-genres available to dive into. You can slip forward in time, back in time, sleep with a vampire or shoot the bad guys all in the pages of a romance novel. What isn’t to love? Romance is so versatile these days you can find it for the young, the old…the Amish.
With any luck, everyone in the world will have a romance in his or her life at some point. God willing they will fall in love…maybe fall out of love. Not everyone will come face to face with death and overcome. And though some people might think they’re vampires, uh…well, perhaps their medication needs to be adjusted. My point is romance novels will always be popular because most of us on this earth can identify with the feeling of falling in love. Of being loved. Or at least have a desire for the emotion.
As I tell my readers who ask, “Aren’t you afraid you’ll run out of ideas?” I say to them. “No! Everyone around you has a story to tell, and there are millions of people out there with a million different stories to tell. I’m sure I can tell a few hundred of them before my fingers wear out.”
