<< 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...


Well, you could always draw a link to Georgette Heyer's Regency stuff which 
was pretty mainstream when it was originally published and damn near crossed 
over into the mainstream when it was reissued in pb in the '70s. Nice solid 
historical settings like Mayfair(Westminster) and Bath, too.

Regency was just before the railroads went it. A map of the traditional old 
coaching routes, maybe?
