Web Crush of the Week: All About Romance
Posted by: Rebecca Vnuk

In honor of Valentine’s Day, a romance blog is the Web Crush of the Week! (Yeah, it’s a day late, sorry.  Karen gave you one last week so don’t hassle me!)

All About Romance is on a mission to  “provide a back-fence atmosphere, a sense of community for lovers of romance novels, to provide honest, thoughtful and entertaining material in order to promote intelligent and diverse discussion about romance novels, and to help readers determine how best to spend their romance novel dollar.” Nice, huh?

Content includes: the interactive “At the Back Fence” column; thousands of staff reviews;  printable lists, including ‘If You Like…” recommendations by author or sub-genre; articles on history for both the novice and expert historian to enhance your historical romance reading; interviews with both best-selling and mid-list (mostly romance) authors; information on author aliases, links to publishers, authors, and other websites, and a message board for authors to directly contact readers regarding releases and signings.

A bonus feature of their reviews is the “Sensuality Rating”.
