plea for info: romance novels

OK, I'm up against a deadline and need some advice:

I'm helping pull together our new title, a map-format publication 
about romance -- its cultural history, geography, and other thematic 
variants. This thing has been in production since last spring, and 
the editors managed to forget about romance novels until the middle 
of the afternoon today, and of course now we are down to needing 
something this weekend... So, I thought I'd try my literary friends 
and see if anything comes up...

I am looking for a point, a place, which can be tied to the 
development of the modern romance novel. Toronto, headquarters of 
Harlequin Books is one idea. We already have Green Gables. Any 
others? Any help is welcomed...

Desperately yours,
