The Romance Novel focuses on the romance between the heroine and hero
A romance novel differs from all other novels because it focuses on the romance between the two main characters: the heroine and the hero. The serial murders that may be occurring are a secondary plot. If the world is coming to an end, it’s secondary. More than half of the story involves the heroine and hero’s relationship. Less than half focuses on the plot that carries the story along. The hero and heroine must not only solve the murders or save the world they must fall in love along the way and figure out how they can be together for eternity. It’s a pretty tall order!
