Last night, after rejection #....well, who's counting?....a friend and CP asked where my heart was in terms of what I wanted to write.
My answer is the same as always....Romantic Suspense.
Sure, I like straight romance. But, for me, the suspense ramps up the ante. There's something about a love story with an edge of danger that works for me. It doesn't matter if it's a full-blown mystery or just a little fear on the part of the heroine, either way, I love it.
I will never write a weak, simpering heroine who can't get by on her own. That's just not me. My heroines can drive a truck or rope a steer or string a fence. They can shoot straight. Good enough to hit a bad guy anyway.
But add a strong, sexy hero to the mix and everything changes.
Even a strong woman sometimes needs someone. And there comes the romance! Put a woman who doesn't think she needs a protector with a man who is determined she does and watch the spraks fly!
So, for me, even after a painful rejection, it's got to be romantic suspense.
What's your pleasure, and why?
