Drake’s home is its own fantasia, a single-level ranch that sprawls in various wings over 7,500 square feet, from the game room to the gym to Drake’s master bedroom with Jacuzzi.

A romance novel is more than just a story in which two people fall in love. It’s a very specific form of genre fiction.
