Contemporary Romance

Contemporary romance is the largest romance subgenre. Books are usually set during the time in which they were written, after WWII. Narratives typically rely on character development to drive the hero and heroine toward a happily ever after. Well-known writers include Nora Roberts and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

In some cases, contemporary romance bears a close resemblance to women's fiction, and chick lit in particular. However, the focus of contemporary romance is the happy resolution of the romantic relationship. If you write novels focused on contemporary romance, explore this subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
