Adding a link to a book review I published last summer in the online Journal of Popular Romance Studies.
The book’s called A Vindication of Love: Reclaiming Romance for the Twenty-First Century. The author’s Cristina Nehring. Needless to say, Nehring never once mentions the popular romance genre or its not-too-shabbily sized readership. But there are other things to be said about her book as well.
Hope you can find something useful here.
