While romance novels and their signature covers are ubiquitous around the world, the global community of millions of women who read, write, and love them remains oddly invisible. Love Between the Covers is the fascinating story of five very different authors who invite us into a vast female community, running a powerhouse industry that’s on the cusp of an irreversible power shift.

You can have paranormal or drama or comedy. You can have science fiction. You can have murder, suspense, anything, as long as you have the core romantic relationship.
— Nora Roberts, romance author

— Suzanne Brockmann, romance author
