What’s Love Got to do With it?

Thanks, Tina Turner…

Remember the days when you were young, crushing on someone who didn’t feel the same way about you? And the guys who liked you, but you couldn’t return the feelings? Glad those days are gone!

I wonder if those heart-wrenching and embarrassing Valentine’s Days from my past shaped my love for reading and writing swoon-worthy romance novels.

No one wants to open their heart to a stranger. That’s where the magic happens in these novels—the couples start off as strangers and gradually get to know each other on a deeper level. But how do these fictional characters find the courage to fall in love? Sometimes, the hard part is making it believable.
