Romance books are far from new but have been growing in popularity over the last few years. Free stories are usually very emotional and feature intense relationships between two people that include drama, passion, love, suspense, mystery, excitement, or even tragedy.

It's safe to say that the romance genre has changed a great deal. From free books based on chivalry in medieval England to those depicting the lives of successful modern girls in Las Vegas or New Orleans, love stories have evolved over the decades.
There are many different sub-genres of romance, including chicklit, fantasy, paranormal, historical, suspense, sci-fi and more. It can be difficult to find free stories that fit your specific tastes but with the internet, and Obooko, you have unlimited options!
Here are a few romance-related snippets we collected to keep you amused due to the irresistible attraction:
Apparently, the Mexican chief Montezuma considered chocolate a very potent 'love drug' and drank a staggering 50 cups of liquid chocolate a day before visiting his harem of, wait for it, 600 women! Make sure you give your man plenty of cocoa tonight.
The zero scores 'Love' in tennis date back to the late 18th century and mean' playing for love' or nothing. Other suggestions claim the use of 'love' as a score derives from its similarity to the French word for egg 'L'oeuf.' Well, zero is egg-shaped.
You have heard of marriage being described as ‘Tying The Knot,’ but where does the saying originate? Apparently, many cultures use knots to signify eternal love that is without a beginning or an end. Make sure yours doesn't come undone with your current or new partner.
Finding a four-leaf clover is believed to bring good luck. It is also part of an ancient love ritual in some parts of Ireland: if a woman thinks about a man while eating a four-leaf clover, he will be sure to fall hopelessly in love with her. But her green teeth might put him off.
Studies have shown that if a man meets a woman in a scary or dangerous environment, such as on a shaky bridge, he is more likely to fall in love with her than if he met her in a regular setting like a shop or office. This goes for women meeting men too. Now, where did I see that bridge?
Ever wonder why engagement and wedding rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand? Apparently, someone in ancient times claimed this finger contains the vena amoris or the 'vein of love and that it runs straight to the heart. It's nonsense, though, because all fingers contain similar veins.
Red roses are a sign of true love and passion. Light pink roses convey passion, desire, and energy. Dark pink communicates gratitude. Yellow roses can mean either jealousy or friendship. Love, at first sight, can be suggested by lavender or thornless rose. And white roses signify devotion or virtue.
Did you know that Antidepressant drugs are likely to hurt romantic love? This is because antidepressants increase serotonin levels. High serotonin levels can suppress emotions and restrict obsessive thoughts about the lover.
When men fall in love, there is more activity in the brain that handles visual stimulation. Women in love, however, show greater activity in the area that controls memory. Experts suggest that men form an opinion about a woman visually to determine if she can bear babies. Women record aspects of a man’s behavior to determine if he would be an adequate provider.
Apparently, men who kiss their partners goodbye in the morning as they leave for work average higher salaries than those who don't. Men who enjoy ritual affection like this tend to be more stable, industrious, and methodical in their work, which leads them to achieve higher earnings. Studies show that these guys also live 5 years longer than nonkissers.
