My most favorite part of a Romance is the the anticipation, building to that first unforgetable moment. It doesn't matter if its their first meeting, that unforgetable first kiss, or the first time they finally make love. It has to pull me in and leave me breathless. My passion is romantic suspense. I love Cindy Gerard, and Suzanne Brockman. Their suspense series are so intense, you become part of the story. They have the ability to draw you in and make you cry for their losses and cheer them on when the mission is complete. But what I find the most appealing is their ability to make you want more. Make you write on your calender when the next book will be out. Anticipate the midnight releases and pre-order when it pops up on your amazon list.

Now tell me why you love Romance.
