Although many romance novels are written specifically with older adults in mind, there are still many others that are PG or PG-13 and suitable for teenagers and young adults. Romance and love is a universal theme that is often beautifully and heart-fully written about by authors who have love stories to share with the world. Some romance novels may be cliché while still others have unexpected twists and turns that leave you in suspense and guessing at every turn of the page. Although some novels may end happily with the traditional “happy ever after”, there are still others that end in sadness or heartbreak. No matter the ending, a good romance novel often leaves the reader wanting more and inevitably tied to the main characters and plot-line.
