Romancing the Blog Hop

I love reading, and writing, romance. In doing so, I get that feeling of falling in love over and over again. The quickening pulse, the rush of heat, the nervousness and insecurity followed by that assurance that you are loved in return. If you've ever fallen in love with that perfect man, you know that feeling and it's one you want to hang on to and remember. If you haven't found that perfect man yet, romances help keep that hope alive and give you that rush until you find it for yourself. Knowing that everything will turn out alright in the end gives you the security to take the risk.

Why do you love romance?

I love romance because it makes me appreciate my boyfriend even more, haha. I recognize the romance in my own relationship when I read the romance in books. :)

For me, romance is all about the trust and respect built between the characters. Since I write BDSM, these elements are very important.

I love the escape into someone else's life inside a book. The romance means it is usually a happy escape from the hustle and bustle of being a busy mom. beck.paloma@gmail.com

Romance doesn't always have to be something elaborate. It could be having your loved one bump your knee with his under the table while you're at the restaurant with relatives.
