Fantastic Romance Books

No, it's not a list of "fantastically great romance reads" but a legitimate fantasy subgenre.

Fantastic Romance Characteristics

  • Level of Magic

This varies from work to work, depending on the characters, but there's usually not much new here.

  • Level of Characterization

The love story being the focus of the work, there are fewer characters than in most fantasy sub-genres. Sometimes the main characters are drawn with a surprisingly amount of complexity.

  • Level of Plot Complexity

Pretty low, and about what you'd expect from a romance.

  • Level of Violence 

Both sex and violence rate high here, but they are usually portrayed pretty innocuously.
