Stuff Of Romance NovelsWe all need emotional and physical closeness to at least one other person.
This is the person who sees us as we really are,
naked and undignified,
and whom we see the same way,
and love anyway.
The need for intimacy,
both physical intimacy and emotional intimacy,
generates some of the oldest and most powerful story conflicts,
and most romance novels.
