For me, the best romance novels aren’t just about sex…Did I just write that? LOL. But yeah. Erotic romance lover I certainly am, but without a good story, it gets boring quick. So, I don’t skimp on the storyline. I want hero and heroine to have a frickin’ life outside of the bedroom. That life is often well populated by ta da, the side characters. Continue reading “Behind every hero and heroine there is a cast of colorful characters propelling the story and making us laugh”
There’s nothing more annoying than a man who has no opinions. Or, one who doesn’t plan. To me that indicates a lack of care or concern. Neither of which is attractive in fiction – or in real life. My heroes? Alphas, baby. Even when the culture wants them to be sweet. *winks* Continue reading “There’s something sexy about a man with a plan – and little to no concern for your age”
I love a forthright man. There’s something terribly sexy about a man who lays his cards on the table: Here it is, love it or leave it, honey. But pretty please love it! Le sigh. It’s like, ok, daddy. I will, I do! I suspect that’s why my dating life is strictly fictional LOL. In … Continue reading A Taste of Life Dating a K-pop Idol? A Hassle, Yes. Enough? Not On Your Music Loving Life
Korean K-pop idols are special. They’re usually talented, gorgeous, their lives are extremely regulated and regimented, and they’re often not allowed to date until they’re older and more established. Even then, it’s not uncommon for a girlfriend or boyfriend to go over very badly with their fans. It spoils the illusion that the idol lives only for them. Many choose to hide their relationships, which comes with its own risks and angst. Continue reading “You’re an Idol. You Date Me, There Will Be Problems”
I’m a super practical person. Which would seem to be at odds with my love for romantic things, but for me, intermingling the two makes perfect sense. If a man really wants to build a great relationship with you, he should think of the practical. After all, getting those necessary things out of the way leaves the field clear for all the loving and other non essential essentials, if you know what I mean. Continue reading “Practicality and lovemaking, always the two shall mix”
Guess what? I just got back from Seoul! Yup. I actually went to the place featured in my upcoming series. I’ve wanted to go for a while now, but I’m not a frequent traveler, and it’s not exactly around the way. But I enjoyed the trip. Korean Air was the best airlines experience I’ve ever had, and I was super prepared: compression socks, neck pillow, wet wipes, face mist, face towelettes, I was ready! Continue reading “Back story, research trips, and my visit to Seoul, South Korea”
I’ve always loved romance novels. Like, literally always, LOL. I’ve been reading them since before I fully understood what was happening in the love scenes.
I started reading Harlequin Presents. You’ve probably seen one or two of those old school white paperbacks with the circle in the middle bearing the hero and heroine’s picture? Those formula romance tales cemented my love for a good romantic tale. But in order for the story to resonate, the characters have to be fully formed. They can’t just fuck.
