About The Brown Book Series

Before romance became a widely accepted genre, romance readers were judged for reading what was deemed "trash" or "smut" in public. In the 1930s, British publisher Mills & Boon began releasing hardback romance novels with discreet brown binding, which soon caught on with other publishers, allowing romance readers to feel comfortable enjoying their favorite novels without scrutiny.
The Brown Book Series pays homage to Mills & Boon for helping romance become as popular as it is today.
