Three Reasons to Love Romantic Suspense
By Rebecca Zanetti
Romantic suspense books can be absolutely breathtaking. As a writer, I think there are three main reasons romantic suspense is so fun to read (and write). First, romantic suspense books throw characters together and can get the romance moving a lot quicker than normal. I mean, what’s more likely to get characters moving? A gal going over to borrow a cup of sugar from her handsome neighbor—or two people fleeing for their lives and hiding out in an abandoned barn after running desperately through a rain storm? How in the world might they warm up?
Second, romantic suspense plots let us delve deeper into the darker side of life. The villains can be all the more villainous – for the stronger your hero, the stronger the villain needs to be. Most of us (hopefully) won’t be running for our lives from a crazy, serial killer stalker. But it sure makes for some exciting reading while we’re safe in our comfy pajamas in front of a fire.
The third and best reason I like romantic suspense is that intense situations bring out the strength of people—real or imaginary. How your heroine reacts to the danger, how the hero leaps to save and protect—that’s fascinating. There’s a complexity to a good romantic suspense novel that includes layer upon layer of characterization. Those are the books that keep us coming back for more.
Rebecca is one of the many talented authors who belong to the Romance Writers of America’s Kiss of Death chapter. At Kiss of Death we believe that every great romance should include suspense. Whether a spy thriller in Regency times, a paranormal romance with a revenge-seeking zombie, or a traditional serial killer after the heroine, romance relies on suspense, leading the reader through the trials of the heroine and hero to see if they will get their happily ever after ending. If you can call your writing suspenseful, then the Kiss of Death has something for you! Find out more and join at http://www.rwamysterysuspense.org and follow us on Twitter at @RWAKissofDeath.
