Here are some broad categories:
Humorous/ Romantic Comedy
Romantic Element in a Mystery
|A sweet contemporary romantic comedy|
However, there are a great many subgenres, such as combining a sweet with a time travel going back in time, which could also make it historical. Or, you might see a paranormal featuring vampires, taking place centuries ago, making it historical as well. Or, you could have a humorous paranormal vampire book. Then, there are all sorts of contemporary romances, ranging from sweet to spicy to erotic, some combining humor, some combining inspirational messages, some containing mysteries.
It's a confusing, yet exciting time for those who love to read or write romances.
I used to enjoy historicals, but for some reason that phase passed. My favorites these days are contemporary sweet romantic comedies, which I also enjoy writing. I also like reading cozy mysteries with a bit of romance thrown in, but so far I haven't written one myself.
What about you? How do you like your romance?
