Welcome, Jane the Virgin viewers! You did as Jane advised and visited the RWA website.

What is a romance novel?
Every romance novel contains two basic elements: a central love story and an emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending.
Or, as Jane said, “In a romance novel, they get a happily ever after” — the HEA. Those are the only rules to the genre! Romance novels can have any tone or style, be set in any place or time, and have varying levels of sensuality.
