Romance Rebels

Led by bestselling romance authors, Megan Crane and Maisey Yates, the Romance Rebels book club is guaranteed to crack open your jaded heart, and maybe even change the way you think about romance.

SEA SWEPT, the first title in the Chesapeake Bay series by master of romance, Nora Roberts, is the selection for March.  

Like everything else, romance has been swept up in a wave of deep cultural conversation. Specific topics range from feminism & consent, to diversity & inclusion, to escapism & politics. For many, these conversations represent an opportunity to finally be seen in a genre they love. For others though, they look like a threat to something they've enjoyed for years.

Originally published in 1998, one might expect SEA SWEPT to be free from these anxieties of the new millennium. Instead, with its beautiful highlight on brotherhood and its classic Roberts female lead (fiercely independent and driven), SEA SWEPT proves that any genre can take a hard, empathetic look at the relevant, true-to-life challenges that we navigate as humans and citizens--some of them even political--and still find a satisfying happy ending.
