Literary agents for genre romance


Romantic fiction - from Jane Austen onwards - is one of the most enduringly popular of all genres. That doesn't (alas!) mean that the genre always gets the respect it deserves. The way "romance" is usually used in modern publishing distinguishes "women's fiction" (which can be fairly upmarket and serious) from "romance" - a term that encompasses such happily mass-market brands as  Mills & Boon and Black Lace, but also fun, frolicky romances issued by the big, corporate publishers.

Because the genre is so broad, it's not enough simply to look for agents with an interest in women's fiction. You do need to find those who are interested in work at the more commercial end of the market. Luckily, we've made the search very easy ...

We've put a sample of romance agents in the list below - but do note that these names represent just  tiny sample of our overall database. You will get the most from Agent Hunter if you create and refine your own searches.
