Its more positive about feminist centered romance novels.

This is why I no longer buy as many romances as I used too. Feminism has made romance boring. The heroes too perfect, the heroines too alpha always take charge not needing the hero.

So did I. I certainly enjoy reading books about heroines with whom I can identify, rather than the old nonsense about heroines who fall in love with their rapists.

I live for that 'old nonsense' and can't get enough of it. The historical romances of today are a joke.

I read one recently in which a Templar was the hero. The dialog was too modern.
