Western romance is a subgenre of romance, usually set during the American frontier-era. In addition, novels may take place in a contemporary western setting or in frontier Canada or Australia. Because of the customary action and adventure infused in these stories, they also can be considered as part of the western genre, with a strong romantic interest added. Popular western romance writers are Linda Lael Miller and Kathleen Eagle.
After a lull, this genre is now experiencing resurgence. Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write novels focused on western romance, explore this subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
