In celebration of Read a Romance month, we couldn’t pass up the chance to talk about our favorite genre. From the sexy heroes to the fierce attraction that can leap off the page when the hero and heroine first meet, there are so many reasons to love reading romance. We’ve pulled together our top five reasons to read a romance this summer (or all year!)
1. Attraction – That intense chemistry when the main characters first meet is a trademark of romance. Whether it’s love at first sight or the hero and heroine hate each other from the start, that flame builds to an all-consuming wildfire by the end of the story. Each couple will have their own unique brand of chemistry.
2. Sexy heroes – We already mentioned this one, but the heroes in romance are so sexy it’s a subject worth delving into. Whether they’re billionaires, Navy SEALS, small town sheriffs, or Wild West outlaws, the heroes in romance are strong, capable, and know how to get things done. No hero represents these qualities better than the blue collar hero. Rachel, the heroine from Revved in our anthology, gets a taste of that when she first meets the hero.
