I thought I would share with you my most reliable free, Internet resources for Romance. I do have to plug using NoveList at your library also though. The database has great articles about romance as a genre and its authors as well as lists of recommended romance books.
Here is an edited version of the resource sheet I gave to the class yesterday:
To Check “Sexy” Level: All Readers. Go to the bottom of an entry for a specific book and look under "style" for a description of what you can expect from the sex scenes
Overbooked Romance reviews, links, and booklists
Neal Wyatt’s “Alert Collector” column In RUSQ (47, no.2). “Core Collections in Genre Studies: Romance Fiction 101.” Excellent Intro to the genre
