    Hey, Fabio – great question at the end of your post. I’m definitely a “slow burn” romance type. I want to see them get to know each other, wonder if the sparks are real, be a little nervous about committing. Definitely much better – it makes you know it’s real when it finally happens, in books as well as life!

    Loved Wicked Sense, and Broken Spell is already on my TBR list. Keep ’em coming! Jen

      Hi, Jennifer! I have nothing against love at first sight, but sometimes I like to se how the feelings evolve.
      Thanks for reading the books! The third novel in the series should be out in May 🙂

    Hi, Fabio!

    To be honest, I am far too much of a romantic to say that I prefer “the slow burn”. I just get goosebumps with “love at first sight” romances….sigh…… but I do think that, even when a couple feel an instant attraction toward each other, they do need some time for things to ‘get going’, like maybe a week? Ha, ha!

    My two favorite love stories actually represent both types of romance.

    The first, “Jane Eyre”, is the ‘slow burn’ type. Jane initially finds Edward Rochester a little intimidating, but she gradually comes to realize that she has fallen in love with him. He, on the other hand, seems to know pretty much right away that he has fallen for Jane, but doesn’t admit to his feelings right away. I really enjoyed the development of their romance!

    The second is “Twilight”. I’m referring specifically to the first book of The Twilight Saga. Bella and Edward are immediately attracted to each other, although Edward does try to stay away from Bella at first, so that he won’t be tempted to take her blood. But their romance does develop pretty quickly. Sigh….. And what a coincidence that the male protagonist in this novel is also named Edward! Well, both of them are dreamy guys…..

    I’m so happy to have discovered you! Aside from Nicholas Sparks, I don’t know of any other male romance writers. I wish there were more of you! I’ve already placed your books on my Amazon wish list, because I WANT them!! Now I’m off to Goodreads, to put them on my TBR shelves there!!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!! And oh, yes, I’m following you through Bloglovin’!! : )

      Hi, Maria! Yes, the love at first sight theme is also interesting to write: is it love, a crush, or just passion? How is the relationship going to evolve when they get to know each other? Maybe they have secrets and baggage, traumas and regret? Lots of good character stuff to explore, for sure.
      I think there are quite more male romance writers than the two of us, but I feel happy to be mentioned alongside Nicholas Sparks 🙂
      Thanks for following and good luck!

    P.S. Correction…..I was forgetting E. Van Lowe, author of The Falling Angels Saga: “Boyfriend from Hell”, “Earth Angel”, and “Heaven Sent”. The fourth and final book in the series, “Falling”, will be out soon.
