Falling in love is a basic human desire. We honor that.
STORYLINE ELEMENTS WE ADORE & LOOK FOR:
~~ Characters with real heart and charisma-- strong smart women who find a partner they can walk through life with. Men with strong character who have an emotional side and flaws that give them likable depth. Alpha males are as wonderful spark, but not a necessity. Stories about realistic flawed people are fantastic too!
~~ A story with an emotional journey. Characters meet, have a serious conflict to resolve or a dangerous situation to escape, and in the end they discover that they are better people TOGETHER than they were apart.
~~ Clever dialogue is always a plus. Humor is a great page turner. Even in the most intense crime drama a little humor makes the characters more likable.
