1. My dictionary suggested "roman d'amour" for romance novel, but the accepted answers only included "roman à l'eau de rose," "roman sentimental," etc. Is there a difference?
2. I used "réussite" instead of "succès" just because it seemed to be repeated too often, but it seems like it wasn't an accepted answers some of the time; is there a difference between the two?

1. "Roman d'amour" sounds a little strange to my native French ears, even though it seems to be in a few bilingual dictionaries. I would not use it though... You will hear "une histoire d'amour" (= a love story)
2. In all these contexts/expressions, "succès" is the best option.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
