Review

"Readable, fascinating looks into the fiction read by real women in the real world."--Augusta Wynde, "Whole Earth Review"

"Krentz and her 18 collaborators, all best-selling romance writers, unleash a veritable arsenal of pro-romance arguments: that romances are a subversive feminist art form. That romances, far from degrading women, actually celebrate and empower women, since they always emerge triumphant over men in the requisite happy ending. That romances are the modern-day inheritor of the heroic tradition in storytelling."--"Seattle Post-Intelligencer"

"The romance writers in Krentz's book are themselves a cross-section of educated women--geologists, lawyers, historians, librarians--who are now among the few hundred people in the United States who make a living writing books. They also battle for women's voices and values."--"Women's Review of Books"

"This book will interest feminist literary and media critics as primary source material for their efforts to understand the impact of the romance genre. . . . It demonstrates eloquently that thinking about the contemporary state of culture goes on beyond the ivory tower and that it is cohesive and compelling."--Janice Radway

""Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women" has attracted unprecedented attention. . . . The book will be found useful by feminist and media critics. It will certainly change their perception of the genre as well."--"San Francisco Review of Books"
