A reader picking up a hot-pink Romance novel will never be subjected to the graphic, lust-fuelled scenes in a flame-covered Blaze story.

No one believes they're great literature, nor do they need to be. They're cherished for their simplicity. Sometimes, all we want is a break from wondering what's going to happen next.
Who said romance was dead?
And in any case, the problems that I give the characters are familiar ones that can't be solved with money or power. In that sense, it's the same issues your plumber could have with his missus, but in a glamorous setting. Walker has been applying this formula since and in that time has sold more than 12 million copies of her books in 67 different countries.
There are very few publishers that have such a strong female history. Even the heroines have traditionally been working women, not housewives. Yes, it was a company started by men, but the women have sustained it'. Just as, in turn, it has sustained the women.
As a company in which women have always been so important, strong and professional, there isn't one to match it. But feminist critics have long attacked the books, citing retrogressive plots, passive women and the reinforcement of the dominant male.
