As much as I love to write romance, I love to read it. I love all the genres, love young adult and new adult, as well as adult, and seriously wish my super power could be to survive on no sleep so I would have plenty of time to read on top of all my other daily activities. (Insert thanks to my family here because when I’m reading a good book, I tend to tune everything else out, and well, that usually means cereal for dinner. Again.)
*Copious amounts of sexual tension. All the stolen glances, the touches, the flirting, the wondering, the day and night dreams, the conflicts, the almost-kiss, the pounding of hearts, all make me want to keep turning/sliding the pages faster than I can read sometimes.
*An irresistible hero. Oh, there are so many facets to making a guy irresistible. Of course hotness is one factor. But there’s got to be more. Much more. Intelligence is a big turn on. Humor. A possessive streak that makes him act like an SOB and willing to do anything for the heroine. Mistakes. There is no such thing as a perfect person. Flaws = Attraction on a whole other level.
*A dash of magic. Depending on the genre I’m reading it could have to do with the supernatural or it could simply be what makes the characters leap off the page. I love when it’s subtle, when it’s just that little something captivating that makes it so I can’t get the story and characters out of my head.
