...if folks weren't willing to try an actual Romance, maybe something outside there regular comfort zone then why vote for it, makes no sense. You can only broaden your horizons if there's something there for you to broaden them on...

I've always liked the Romance category because it leads to an interesting and varied selection that may include different types of books but has a connecting link of romance.

I'd say this month's nominations are a success. I think, looking at their descriptions, that eight of the ten nominees have strong romantic elements in them.
