I get that this question is wide open to personal opinions....which is exactly what I want I'm curious what makes it "good". I know what I hate and what drives me nuts and makes me close the book, but I also know what I love and I'm curious what others love.

Is it the HEA component, a strong female, a strong male, overcoming a difficult past you can relate too? There is no wrong answer here, everyone is entitled to love what they love, I'm just wondering what my fellow romance writers/readers are drawn to and what keeps them coming back...what never gets old?

Oh...and do feel free to share some of your fave books.
