A thought came to me earlier today so I'm blogging about it. When you're reading a romance novel, what's the biggest turn on for you? Do you like a story where the hero and heroine don't know each other or do you like a story where they have history together? Or does it matter?
It matters for me. I much prefer a romance where the hero and heroine don't know each other. Part of the thrill for me is when they meet for the first time and then the developing relationship between them. The conflict they have to overcome, the first kiss. The passion when it explodes between them for the first time. Know what I mean? I want there to be mystery between them.
I'm not saying you can't get that with a married couple. It's just...different. Now, give me a hero and heroine who maybe knew each other years before, parted and for some reason come back together. Now, that has potential.
