 TT#8…I think

Since I seem to get a lot of visitors that don’t read romances, how about 13 reasons why you should give them a shot.  It’s also February… the month for romance…well, according to the commercials I see on TV.  ;o)

  1. You are guaranteed a happy ending.  A romance is the only genre I know I’ll find a romance ending.  We won’t go in to the mislabeling/mismarketing of some paranormal women’s fiction type thing that have been promoted as romance.
  2. You can find some of the most fantastic stories.
  3. All sorts of subgenres, to appeal to almost every one, inspirational, erotic romance, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, historical romance, even horror romance, although that’s a little harder to find.
  4. Did I mention the great stories?
  5. It’s not all about the sex.  You can easily buy a romance that doesn’t have any sex at all, or just a little, or the sex all ‘behind the door’ type of thing.
  6. It’s not all about the hero with the naked chest and piercing gaze, either.
  7. It’s not about the heroine with the ripped bodice, either.  The bodice rippers of the 80s are not indicative of today’s romance.
  8. There are some SERIOUSLY great stories.
  9. Most people, even guys, eventually get to the point where they want to meet somebody they can call their own… this is my mate/lover/spouse, whatever, somebody you’ll go home to, laugh with, love with, grieve with…share everything, even the bad stuff, and they will still love you.  That’s what a romance is about.
  10. There are so many romances out there, it’s possible you’ll never have to leave the bookstore empty handed.
  11. Did I mention the great stories …   ;o)
  12. Romances make up more than half of all books sold every year, so there’s got to be something in them that keeps them selling.
  13. and last… but not least… I write them.  Why don’t you give it a shot?
