I found this quote online the other day. I don’t know what book it is from:

Men writing romance versus Women writing romance.

The publisher-specified definition of a “romance novel” says that hero and heroine (or heroes or heroines) must all be alive and committed to each other at the end of the book.

However, then you have romantic fiction, and everyone from Shakespeare to Nicholas Sparks to John Green comes to mind. Lotta death and misery there…
