When people ask me what I like about writing romance, I tell them that I like that a happy ending is guaranteed. From the time I began to read I loved the satisfied feeling I got when the animal in the story found his way home or when a sad child with no friends at the beginning of the book had friends at the end. I also liked any stories where good triumphed over evil. Because, in my mind, that’s as it should be.
Another thing I like about romance novels are that you watch the characters grow and mature through adversity. They are not the same at the end of the book as they were at the beginning. Part of that is due to the hero or heroine coming into their life. Through their interactions with that person they become more than they could have been without them in their life. I know some might say that life is full of unhappy endings. I don’t dispute that, but when I sit down to relax with a book I want to be uplifted, not depressed.
That is why I read–and write–romance.
