A Challenge


I've set a few challenges for myself with these books. One is this: How romantic and stomach-churning and heat-filled can I make the stories without employing the usual moments we expect to see? I'm not attempting rewrite rules; I'm not nearly that audacious and I do adore a good traditional romcom.

But that's one enjoyable goal I've set and it's a goal I hope people like: Can a reader feel like two characters are going out long before they've reached the going-out point? Can it seem like, whenever the characters are alone, they've spent that time kissing even if they've just been talking?

Absolutely. I totally think of Fair and Gomery as a couple, even though they haven't kissed or had a DTR (stands for Determine the Relationship), yet.

The romance before the romance. :)

Often times the romance before the romance is delicious. Redwoodian was delicious.
