Romance was David Cassidy's seventh studio album as a solo artist and his first released by Arista Records. Released in 1985, Romance was the only studio album Cassidy released during the 1980s. Since growing out of his teen idol fame from The Partridge Family, Cassidy continued to try to re-invent his music career; however, in the United States, his latter albums from the 1970s did not chart. Therefore, for the album Romance, Arista excluded a U.S. release and released the album only in Europe, Israel, Japan, South Africa and Australia.

Romance hit no. 20 on the British charts in May 1985. George Michael sang on the song, "The Last Kiss" which peaked at #6 in the UK Top 40 and charted all over Europe and in Australia. Subsequent singles from the album - "Romance (Let Your Heart Go)" and "Someone" - were minor hits in comparison. However, the last single from the album "She Knows All About Boys" was a Pan European #1. The album written prior to and after the marriage of Cassidy to Meryl Tanz was written about their marriage and David gives both Meryl and her daughter Caroline thanks for the two years it took to bring it to fruition.

The album is produced by Alan Tarney. Tarney also wrote or co-wrote (with David Cassidy) all songs on the album with the exception of "She Knows All About Boys".
