Description: The early and mid 1980s saw an explosion of activity and change in romance publishing. For the first time, Harlequin had direct competition for the North American market. As a result of this competition, there was a great deal of change and innovation in the field. Whereas previously, very few North American writers were published, the new publishing homes specifically recruited North American authors. As a result of the intense competition and the new and innovative work being done, romance grew as a genre, breaking out of some of the conventions which had previously constrained it.

In this work, Kay Mussell and Johanna Tunon collect essays by contemporary North American romance authors who have come to prominence, directly or indirectly, as a result of the shake-up of the field which started in the early 1980s. In their essays on their own work, each of the writers in this volume describes her own "take" on the romance novel today and how she has adapted the form to accommodate her own voice and concerns. Collectively, these writers have used the romance genre to address a broad range of social issues and problems. Presenting these essays together provides a window into the creativity and originality of some of the writers who have shaped romances since the dramatic changes of the early 1980s.
