What Qualities Do You Seek In A Romance Novel That Make It A “Keeper”?

For me this answer is the same whether the book is a romance, a mystery, lit light, or serious literary fiction. A book that touches my emotions and makes me lose track of where I am becomes a keeper for me. Sometimes that will happen because of the story situation, characters, or the writer’s particular voice. Usually it will be a combination of all three.
