Marketplace Feminism? The Writing and Selling of Lisa Kleypas’s Ravenels Series

Publication year

From the introduction to the volume:

Inmaculada Pérez-Casal, expands on this marriage between business and romance as it explores the notion of marketplace feminism in her analysis of Lisa Kleypas’s Ravenels series. Pérez-Casal focuses on the writing and selling of the last three books in the series, Devil in Spring (2017), Hello Stranger (2018), and Devil’s Daughter (2019), which have placed this author at the frontline of a renewed romance writing which, in the wave of feminist protests in the United States, is committed to women’s rights and, thus, labelled as feminist in line with similar trends in “marketplace feminism” (Zeisler).
