This study is limited to romance novels published prior to 2006, although we see replications of gender schematic narrative in current romance narratives featuring paranormal encounters (Twilight) and erotica (Fifty Shades of Grey).
The authors gratefully acknowledge Gloria Gadsen, Annula Linder, and Emily Hutton for comments on various drafts of this chapter as well as Kenyon College for funding this research endeavor with a Teaching Initiative Grant and a Summer Research Grant.
