MY FAVORITE TYPE OF ROMANCE….FATED LOVE
by Vanessa Peters
There is an undercurrent to all romance stories that pulls the reader in. Sure the sexy and steamy parts are a big draw, but what keeps our dear Constant Reader coming back again and again is the love story at the core of it all. We all have our predilections towards a certain type of romance -- tragic love, unrequited love, first love….
But, what is it that attracts a reader to a particular type of love story? Why is one tale of romance more alluring than another?
As a teenager, I was drawn to any and all types of tragic romances, the darker the better. But with age and experience, taste and tendencies change, now in my thirties I find I prefer a love story centered on…sigh…fated romance.
There is a seed that is planted in the mind of our dear Constant Reader from every tale we weave of fated love. It is a seed born of lost loves, old crushes and lovers of days past, which blooms at the end of each story. Fantasies of what-ifs and a force greater than ourselves that could lead the love they lost at 18 to suddenly reappear. Fate would weave a web of events and chance encounters that would bring that one great love back to them.
And then maybe they end up being a werewolf too…but that’s a story for another day.♥
