As you may remember, last week I introduced a four-part interview where I have asked four different authors the same questions about romance. I thought it would be fun if I asked you, the readers, some of the same questions. I’ll give an answer, but I definitely want to see yours!
Question #1 In your opinion, what is one thing that a romance novel should have in order to be successful?
To answer this question I have to think about all of my favorite romance novels and what they have in common: no secrets, no hidden agendas, respect, self-sacrifice, and to a degree, infatuation. In my own novels, I always shoot for that underlying layer of deep friendship; that idea that the couple “gets” each other, even if no one else does. But this maybe because I think romances based on friendship are some of my favorite to read.
Now, it’s your turn! Tell me your thoughts!
