let's add CONSENT ISSUES to this too because that's another big one
it's usually the hero forcing his affections on the heroine, physically or otherwise
do you like me yet
what if I do this
do you like me now
don't deny it
until she finally swoons

issues I see often in historical romance submissions:
*every named character is white, no variety
*harmful LGBT+ character rep
*harmful PoC character rep
*over-accentuated accents
*too many setting/era details
*not enough setting/era details
