Agreed. :)

But romance novels have that 'so much more' don't just number one. Plenty of
authors have written 'romance' novels that are mult-layered besides Austen.
Georgette Heyer. Dorothy Sayers.

Just as Raymond Chandler's books aren't just 'mysteries' and JK Rowling's
books aren't simply children's literature.

It is rare for a book to transcent genre in any genre but it happens as
frequently in romance as any other.
