Keep your existential works with two men wandering in the desert discussing the futility of life. I want to see the beauty in life. I want to see two people overcome the odds and find one of life's greatest gifts: love.
The Cowboy and the Well-Bred Lady forced to marry for to complete the terms of a will, the Italian Billionaire and The Waitress dealing with an unexpected pregnancy, two friends seeing each other in a new light. I love it all.
Predictable? Sure. But if it wasn't predictable, that means it ended wrong. Unrealistic? I don't think so. Amplified? Maybe. But to me, it's all still totally relatable.
Whenever I read a good romance it reminds me of how special it is to be married to that one wonderful man who takes your breath away. No, my husband isn't an Italian billionaire, but he's that one man for me, the lifetime love. A good romance novel reminds you of why that's such an amazing find.
I can leave reality and tragedy on the six 'o clock news. Give me love, give me romance, give me passion, and a Sheikh and his Forbidden Virgin!
