Amish romance novels: it’s a thing. Valerie Weaver Zercher explains in Bonnet Rippers:

I do not know what books these boxes hold, but as I step inside the door, a shelf to my left offers a clue: Amish romance novels, all with covers depicting lovely Amish-clad Mädchen hovering over pastoral landscapes, line the shelves. A handwritten note on neon green paper taped to one shelf says, “New! Lydia’s Charm.” Published by Barbour Books, the novel tells the gentle story of a widow who moves to Charm, Ohio, and is pursued by two Amish suitors, one a widower with three unruly boys and the other a shy bachelor.

This is making me want to write a paper…you know an idea or genre of book is good when it’s making me *want* to write a paper.
