From bodice rippers to erotic blockbusters, the romance genre is big business – accounting for a quarter of the total fiction market.
But what does the modern romance novel look like, and why are they so popular? Does romantic fiction influence our own expectations of love and relationships, or is it harmless escapism? In her latest book, ‘A Most Intriguing Lady’ for the legendary and prolific romantic publisher Mills & Boon, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York tells a fictional story inspired by one of her ancestors, Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott. Join us for a special Tortoise Interview where pulses race and hearts skip, as we explore, celebrate and potentially swoon over stories of love and romance.
