The Contemporary and na romance cats are full of angsty books. They sell big time. If you have limited knowledge of the whole romance genre, I would go and read a few romances and find out more about the genre.

If your book is not focused on the connection and relationship between the main characters and does not have a HEA, then it is probably not a romance.

Here's a few authors who write good angsty romance:

S.C. Stephens
Colleen Hoover
Rebecca Donovan
Jessica Sorensen
Mia Sheridan
Brittany Cherry
K.A. Tucker
Claire Contreras
