How to Romance a Romance Writer?

A simple how-to guide.

Romance writers are a special breed of people. Wooing them takes time and effort, and some insider knowledge. Here are my tips J

  1. Don’t bother with flowers. They take time and effort to find a vase, to cut the stems, top up with water etc. The cats will nibble the petals and scatter pollen, and try to knock the vase over. Chocolates are fine though. Bring chocolate. Lots of chocolate.


  1. Don’t bother with dinner reservations. If we’re part way through edits, or up against the clock to finish a manuscript, the last thing we want to do is tear ourselves away from our laptops just for food. Even fancy food. Instead, fetch a takeaway, one that we can eat one-handed without splashing on the keyboard. Fried rice is perfect.

  1. Same with movie tickets. A boxed set of DVDs is fine though. When we need a break from the laptop, it’s cool to curl up on the sofa in the wee hours of the morning for a 24 / Supernatural / Breaking Bad marathon.

  1. Coffee is brilliant. Fetch me regular coffee when I’m in the middle of a project, and I’ll be happy. Bring me wine too, and I’ll be very impressed.

  1. Going out at the weekend is a giant No. That’s our main time for pounding the keyboard. If you want my heart, mow my lawn instead, and fix that awkward cupboard door, the one I never have time to sort out.

His Temporary Fix

Publisher: Entangled Select

Genre: Contemp military romance

Holly Jacobs loses her heart a little too easily. Never again. But when she meets the sexy soldier on the beach, Holly knows she’s in big trouble. Zack Winter is gorgeous and in pain, and when he kisses Holly, all of her resolve melts away…

Zack is on short-term leave to attend a funeral, and he’s walking a fine line. The loss is unbearable…and he’ll do whatever it takes to distract himself from it. Especially if it means a night of searingly-hot sex with Holly Jacobs. Only his brilliant idea isn’t exactly going according to plan.

One night isn’t nearly enough. But if it goes much longer it might end in broken hearts…

  1. These are great ideas! I love flowers, but it hasn’t been a good idea to get them for the last several years because my cat loves eating them (and throwing them up…). I totally agree about the weekends and take out, but I do like excuses to get out. I go out so rarely these days that even just running to the grocery store feels like an adventure! When I do go out now, I like to overdo it, because it’s probably the only time I’ll see the sun for a week or more, apart from going to the gym! I would also add massages to this list — there’s nothing like a good neck rub after a long week typing! 😉

  2. Omg, YES. To all. When people are like “let’s go have a coffee in town!” I’m like …. “But I have to write!!!” Extra points if they bring me a cookie with the coffee to my desk!
    Sounds like a fab book; I’ll have to check it out!
