Love Between the Covers

‘Love Between the Covers’ is an acclaimed documentary about the little known, surprisingly powerful community of women who read and write romance novels.

While romance novels and their signature covers are ubiquitous around the world and romance novels are sold in 34 languages, the global community of millions of women who read, write, and love them remains oddly invisible.

‘Love Between the Covers’ is the fascinating story of six very different authors within a powerhouse industry that’s on the cusp of an irreversible change. For three years, we follow their lives as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing and earn a living doing what they love – while empowering others to do the same.

See what goes on behind the scenes at some of romance’s biggest publishing houses.
