Seven Ingredients I Love Seeing in a Swoon Worthy Romance
It’s not just about looks, or hormones, or that they both like coconut macaroons. There has to be a certain magic between the two characters that is irresistible.
But of course they can and do tick, annoy, and infuriate each other too. They are not made from exactly the same mold which is what keeps things interesting.
- Near misses
Timing is everything and sometimes it seems like they are forever ships passing in the night. Come on you two, get it together.
They both have their own goals, their own needs, their own lives and motivations. They are interesting on their own without each other, but boy put them together and they are unstoppable.
It might be friends, family, that “other” person, or entire kingdoms, but rarely is love smooth sailing from the get go. Things get in the way.
They just might not make it. Seriously, it would be a shame. As a reader, I worry that the obstacles might win. They might end up with the wrong person, or alone, or dead, or . . . so much could go wrong!
- The Kiss
Or many. It make take a while, but the wait is so worth it. Whether it lasts for only a few words, a few sentences, or a few pages, at some point, even if momentary, love wins.
Thanks for having me at Bewitched Bookworms today, Danny!

In this timeless new trilogy about love and sacrifice, a princess must find her place in a reborn world.
In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.
On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
