Introduction

This bibliography is a guide to selected romance titles produced by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) in audio and braille formats. These books are available to NLS patrons through their cooperating network libraries throughout the United States and its territories.

The love story was a staple of poets and storytellers long before the invention of the printing press or the development of the novel. Enthusiasm for love stories has flourished unabated for centuries. According to the Romance Writers of America, romance had the largest share of the U.S. consumer market in 2012, when the genre generated more than $1.4 billion in sales.

Romances—like mysteries, westerns, and espionage novels—provide an escape to a world with certain distinctive character types and situations. The story is usually about a woman and her relationship with a man. Other elements like adventure, suspense, or paranormal events may be present, but the focus is on the relationship. Dull, everyday problems tend to be glossed over and, although danger may be imminent, the environment is safe for the main characters.

Much of modern fiction—romances included—contains strong language and descriptions of sex and violence.  But not all readers want that. This bibliography presents titles produced by NLS that do not contain explicit sex, violence, or strong language. Even within these limits there is still great variety. Bestselling authors such as Janet Evanovich, Peter Mayle, Colleen McCullough, Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, and Danielle Steel are represented. Settings include Regency-period London, current-day Amish communities, NASCAR races, and the paranormal worlds of time travel and vampires. The roles of women run the gamut from traditional to modern. Marion Chesney’s traveling matchmaker journeys around England by stagecoach to ply her trade, while the heroines of Dee Henderson’s Uncommon Heroes series are a lifeguard, a navy pilot, and a CIA agent.

Titles are arranged in alphabetical order by format according to their author’s last name and are available in braille and/or audiobook formats. Recorded titles are available on digital cartridge (DB) and/or on the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) at https://nlsbard.loc.gov, which allows registered patrons to download digital talking books and audio magazines. Some digital titles may be available only for download. Braille (BR) titles are also available on BARD.
