Challenge

Let's face it. Sometimes, love makes absolutely no sense. So why does it have to in a book? I've read reviews that were negative because readers couldn't figure out why the hero and heroine fell in love. Real life is strange. But fiction isn't supposed to be. That's not my opinion. I think the stranger the story, the better. People fall in love for all sorts of reasons. But it all usually starts off with what is pleasing to the eye.

Think about your hero/heroine's first meeting. Their gazes meet. Sparks fly at a touch. Something is there that sets her/him apart from all others. That's where the 'why' comes in. What is it? There has to be something. You can't have a 'just because' here. Something brought them together.

So here's a challenge for the writers out there. In two sentences, tell me why your hero and heroine love each other.

  1. It's way too early for me to think this hard...

    They love each other because they have a strong, silent, and unexplainable connection.

    And because they have each other's back.

    1. That sounds like the best type of love.

  2. Lily loves Will because he brought love back into her life.
    He loves her because she trusts him.

  3. ooooh, I like this challenge! Hmmm... Chase loves Nina (Start Me Up) because she doesn't take his *&^%; she's a real person who isn't afraid of fighting for what she wants. Nina feels a connection to Chase she hasn't felt for anyone before and she loves him because under the surface glam he is still a guy who believes in people.

  4. Because they each makes the other one feel real. The world is a mess and they have someone who makes them feel like a person and not just a survivor..
