Susan: Thank you, Rose.  Let’s start with what you look for when you’re looking at romance books.  Do the covers matter to you?

Rose: Yes, I do pick out a book by its cover and title to begin with. Then I read about the book and continue or put it down according to what the book is about.

Susan: What kinds of things might make you put that book down?

Rose: If the book seems too violent. If the main characters are not in love and just having an fling. I don’t like violent books or books without love in them.

Susan: What special qualities will make you take a book home?

Rose: If the book has a interesting love story to it. If it has a strong beginning that gets your attention and keeps it. I like vampires, werewolves, faery, and elven stories.

Susan: What kind of heroes attract you the most? The big strong guys or the silent smart ones or something I haven’t thought of yet. (Laughs.)

Rose: The big, strong, protective, rich, smart ones. (Laughs.) The ones who know what they want and how to get it.

Susan: So you don’t mind the protective guy. Some women don’t want heroines to appear weak.  Do you have any advice for the best type of heroine?

Rose: She needs to be smart, attractive, and know what she wants in life and willing to do what it takes to get it.

Susan: So they almost have to be equally matched. Would you say that?

Rose: Absolutely!

Susan: What is your favorite part of a romance novel?

Rose: When they finally realize they are in love.

Susan: I love it.  That’s the most amazing moment in the book. What would you like to see more of in romance novels?

Rose: I’d like to see the couple working together more at jobs that work for both of them. Or how their lives include their careers and how it works for both of them.

Susan: That is a concept that I haven’t seen a lot of yet. Is there anything you would like to say about romance novels to the writers and readers out there in our blog audience?

Rose: I think that romance novels teach people what love is supposed to be and acts out the hopes that people have about love. They need to be a good influence on their readers especially young readers that are forming their concepts about love and life.

Susan: Thank you, Rose. Listen up, authors to what a romance reader wants. Readers, do you have anything to add? Please, share in our comment box.
