What is Fantasy Romance?
Fantasy Romance is a Romance subgenre. In these types of books, the plot of the story is primarily about romantic relationships and has fantasy elements—like magic, faraway kingdoms, and quests—woven in. Fantasy Romance books enable readers to meet and fall in love with unique characters who are unlike your typical Romance heroes and heroines. Not only are the heroes in Fantasy Romance books usually half-human or half-beast, but they also get to save the world while keeping romance alive in their hearts and minds. They live in such a different world from ours, with magic and sorcery always at their side. Their love stories, because of their differences, are unique and intriguing. With so many exciting aspects, who can’t get into fantasy romance books?
