    I know books were meant to tackle a theme or few themes and so can't encompass everything. Keeping that in mind, what do you think is missing from romantic novels on the whole? What's something every romance novel should encompass that isn't done or could be done better?

    One of my issues with many romance novels is the easy resolution to problems. I know romance is the center of the story but it rings false

    I agree. Everything is wrapped way too easily. If you're going to have a happy ending make the main character suffer and work for it.

    Yeah, I see people say that all the time, that solutions are way too easy. I'm curious to see some actual examples of a good resolutions, though.

    As someone who writes romance from time to from (okay, a lot of the time) it would be interesting, not to mention helpful
