Americans Love Romance!

(StatePoint) Call Americans old softies, but romance is booming nationwide.

Date night is back. Film attendance climbed 16 percent last year, the biggest rise in 20 years according to Media by Numbers.

Sales of romance novels are up. Nielsen BookScan reports increased adult fiction sales, with many romance publishers enjoying boosts.

"Romantic novels and movies inspire us to infuse our relationships with romance," says relationship expert and romance novelist, Gayle Rogers, who has seen increased sales of her 1972 million-copy classic, "Nakoa's Woman," which follows two star-crossed lovers in the Old West, and its sequels, "Gladyce with a C," and "For Love's Sake Only," in which the lovers meet in other eras.

So break out those chocolates and roses, and join the trend!
