Romance Author Panel

Media Title

There’s more to romance novels than cover art featuring flaxen-haired body builders and pouty-lipped damsels—much more—and this Valentine’s Day season, the Free Library of Philadelphia is exploring the depth and range of literary (and literal) love via this engaging discussion with three popular genre authors.

Megan Hart focuses not only on the erotic, but on the terrifying; her work blends the seemingly opposing worlds of romance and horror. Her novel Stranger tells the sordid tale of a funeral director who pays for sex in an attempt to avoid an intimate loss of her own. Family law attorney and New York Times best-selling author Grace Burrowes balances her day job by writing novels in the genre she fell in love with—no pun intended—boasting an impressive quiver of sagas and stand-alone novels. And as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a proud Navy wife, Geri Krotow’s three most recent novels feature protagonists, both male and female, who are active duty soldiers. In Navy Orders, she manages to illustrate the main character’s complex struggle to maintain her successful career in lieu of a love life and what happens when those two worlds collide.

Each panelist brings a unique flavor to the genre that promises to continue delighting current readers, while hopefully securing a few new life-long fans. Come hear them discuss the art of the paperback seduction. / KENNEDY ALLEN
