Question of the Day

Some people love to read novels set in Scotland.  Some people love to read about serial killers.  Some people love to read books about aliens who fall in love with earthlings.  What’s one of your favorite book tropes and what it is that you find so appealing about it?

Scotish imperfect brute saves a dainty girl. Maybe this is my favorite because i love to read words in that thick accent. It adds to the image in my minds eye.

Fantasy romance where there is a good balance of adventure and romance. 🙂

One of my favorite tropes in romance is a healer for the heroine and warrior for the hero! I’m a sucker for those types of romances. Take Ashlyn Macnamara’s Destined for a King, for example. Such an amazing novel! Something about this dynamic really works for me. 😀

Have a great weekend!

I love Fey fantasy romance novels! I love how different authors have different takes on the Fey world! Paranormal/fantasy romance is my favorite but I also love some Regency romance but only a few select authors. The first romance novels I ever read when I was 16 was a time travel series set in Scotland and England by Lynn Kurland and it’s still my favorite series today! I love how all of the stories are connected through different family members!

I don’t see them too often anymore, but I like romance novels that involve time travel. It’s fun to see how characters react to how different everyday life is in different points in history!

One of my favorites is ready bf about English Regency romance novels. I don’t know what it is about it but I find the time period fascinating.

Fantasy romance. Individually each genre is great in and of itself but goodness of both combined can’t be compared with any other, for me. I do read novels with just one or the other or sub-genres of each but I can’t help but love when both come together. Making whole new worlds and giving them life is the beauty of fantasy but adding a good romance in it just makes it perfect.

I love historical romance with a mix of paranormal/magic. The add a new twist to a popular genre, and I love seeing how seamlessly the two fit together.

Supernatural romances be they vamps, elves, fae, aliens, etc.. When I read I love books that suck me in and take me to their world. I prefer things that can exist outside of reality because I live in reality the rest of the time. It’s an escape for me.

I love all types of books from romance to serial killers. My favorite romances are usually set in Scotland, but I am happy for them to be set anywhere really. Vampire novels are my top favorite at the moment but it kind of shares space with whatever appeals to me that week as well. I am usually reading about twenty books at a time. I have them lying around everywhere .. bathroom, in my car, on the bed, in the kitchen, in my bag lol you name it there is probably a book there.
