Whether we're writing about vampires falling in love,
shape-shifting wolves who find their soul mates,
or Regency lords and ladies dancing in ballrooms, many of us on this blog write romances. What is it about romance that draws us in?
As much as I love the happy endings, I also love watching my characters get there. They fight, and they fume, and they slowly work on themselves and each other until their walls come down and they see each other as they truly are. The characters in my novels have to learn to trust each other, and as they do, their world opens up, becoming a better place. None of my characters are perfect, but they learn to love each other, flaws and all, and learn how to better love themselves. It is a joy to watch people grow through love, whether on the page or in life. Of course, everything is easier on the page, but that's part of the fun of reading and writing romances, too.
Christy English is happiest when she is dreaming. Her dreams have taken her to the royal court of Henry II in THE QUEEN’S PAWN, to medieval Paris in TO BE QUEEN, and now to Regency England in MUCH ADO ABOUT JACK, LOVE ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT, and HOW TO TAME A WILFULL WIFE, where she loves to watch her characters find true love, often in spite of themselves.
