    I only read one romance with a woman who was size 14, if I remember right. I really liked it very much, not because of the romance (which was pretty basic paranormal romance). But I remember being astonished that the “hero” alpha male was being paired with a plus size woman, and embracing her curves over a much thinner rival (who was nowhere near a nice a person or as good match for him.) Until that point I had read only “thin” romances with heroines I always felt much too fat to be compared to. I absolutely loved it, and I have remembered it the rest of my life. Women should have curves, and be proud of them! As far as a plus size heroine on the cover, why not? Marilyn was sexy enough to be a pin up girl. And then I’d know by the cover that the romance featured a “full figure” heroine đŸ™‚

      Thanks so posting! I had that same experience – read a story with a plus heroine and was shocked and thrilled to find this needle in the haystack! As well written as those other romances were, I couldn’t related to a woman who was so slender a man could span her waist with his hands. I couldn’t even IMAGINE living in a body like that. I’m glad you agree with me about the covers. I like plus women on covers. All women are beautiful regardless of size, but it’s nice to be able to say, I’m beautiful TOO!
