9. Page turning action.
8. Toe curling romance.
7. Transports readers to exotic locations.

5. Kick butt heroes and heroines.
4. Hot, hunky heroes with heart, soul, integrity and the intelligence to be a perfect match for the heroine.

And the number 1 reason Romantic Suspense is the best genre ever:
The best writers in the business call romantic suspense home.
