A genre of {{literature}} that has become popular starting in the early 20th century and by the end of the century did much to supress all other meanings of {{Romance}}. While romantic subplots have existed in fiction since fairly close to the beginning, romance as a focal point and driving force hadn't really been explored in depth until the last few centuries. Romance novels as an industry started in TheThirties with the company of Mills and Boon releasing hardcover romance novels. The genre changed significantly with the distribution of ''Literature/TheFlameAndTheFlower'', which is noteworthy for showing that buyers of romance novels are more than happy to read about sex. Because of the single requirement required for a book to be a Romance (a HappilyEverAfter) many differ genres have been incorporated into subgenres, such as Historical Romance, ParanormalRomance and even MilitaryFiction.
