A romance novel is a novel from the genre currently known as romance.
Some romance novel readers would claim that the genre has additional restrictions, from plot considerations such as the hero and heroine meeting early on in the story, to avoiding possible themes, such as neither hero nor heroine committing adultery in the course of their relationship developing.
Romance novels are most popular in the United States and Canada, where it is the best-selling genre.

 Novel, Romance, and Gothic: Brief Definitions
Doubtless the main difference between the novel and the romance is in the way in which they view reality.
Authors of such novels set their stories in the medieval period, often in a gloomy castle replete with dungeons, subterranean passages, and sliding panels, and made plentiful use of ghosts, mysterious disappearances, and other sensational and supernatural occurrences; their principal aim was to evoke chilling terror by exploiting mystery, cruelty, and a variety of horrors.
The live burial that is a favorite conventual punishment in Gothic novels derives much of its horror not from the buried person's loss of outside activities (that would be the horror or dead burial), but from the continuation of a parallel activity that is suddenly redundant.

 Historical Romance
You've probably heard reviewers criticize historical romance novels for either not enough history to make the story seem real, or too much history that overpowers the romance.
While it really comes down to the author's personal style, I believe the trick to a commercially successful romance novel is to keep your historical content somewhere between pretty "wallpaper" and the primary focus of your story.
It should provide a foundation and a framework for your story, but never forget that your focus-- and your reader's focus-- should be rooted on the characters and their budding romance.

"The point of a romance novel is the story's central romance and the ups and downs that befall the couple along the road to the happy ending," McGregor says.

 Amazon.com: Possession : A Romance (Vintage International): Books: A.S. Byatt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Together with Roland Michell, a fellow academic and accidental sleuth, Maud discovers a love affair between the two Victorian writers the pair has dedicated their lives to studying: Randolph Ash, a literary great long assumed to be a devoted and faithful husband, and Christabel La Motte, a lesser-known "fairy poetess" and chaste spinster.
Whether she realized it or not, this would result in many "romance novel" readers trying to tackle her 1990 masterpiece, only to discard it as "too long and boring".
Both the modern day and the Victorian romance are between participants (Maud and Roland in this century, Ash and Christabel in the 19th) who are somewhat aloof from the world, imbued by their studies and crafts, and content with solitary existences...almost afraid to give themselves to another in a relationship.
