Why Men Should Read Romance: a guest post by Rebecca A. Corio

Let’s talk about romance novels for a minute. Romance novels come with a specific stigma. They’re “cheap, cheesy, trashy, not real literature”… Do any of these sound familiar? Then, there’s the fact that romance novels are written for women only. Aren’t they? Maybe once upon a time. Now? That would be debatable.
