Types of Romances
There are many types of romantic heroes in romance novels: cowboys, sports players, different nationalities, musicians, aliens, shape shifters, and servicemen
of all branches. For me this category of books was filled with bikers and billionaires. YUP, you heard me right, bikers and billionaires. Just to be clear the billionaires were not bikers and bikers were not billionaires: they were two separate
I won’t admit to the number of romance novels that are about people in motorcycle clubs. I am sure Jax for SOA is part of the upswing. The books range from fanciful to down right gritty.
They are not always about a typical love story, in some there is violence, blood and death so strong that they are characters within the books. They often contain illegal activities: guns, drugs, lawlessness and very negative images of women. Yet
I cannot stop reading them. I wonder if this is the way my very proper law abiding soul rides free. BTW - My favorites: Kristen Ashley and Joanna Wylde.
in contemporary love stories are just the grown up and modern version of fairy tales. I know that I am not going to run into one, work for one, or have them be best friends of my family and friends. However, I still love them. Their ability
to be dashing, ordering planes and plans without thoughts of cost are not my reality They are fixing up the worlds of poorer but beautiful woman. The cool part of most of these modern fairytales is that most of the time, the women save them right back, by
making them more human, likable, and realistic. The fancy penthouse apartments in New York with the outrageous pieces of art that means nothing without love...SIGH. (I know – I have it bad!) Of course they are worldly and know so much about
how to make the woman swoon... still SIGHING. BTW – My favorites authors: Melody Anne, Ruth Cardello, and Katy Regnery.
I live half way
up a hill in a small New England town where there are no bikers or billionaires. I am older than most of the characters and live in an insular world of work, friends, family and books. The closest I come to billionaires are if they swim in the lakes
near my home from their luxurious homes while I swim from the state park. Bikers enter my world for a weekend in Laconia. The motorcycles come from all over and party in the Weirs. I watch the bikes go by avidly when I am on the highway going to work
or visiting family. My world has no correlation to bikers or billionaires. Perhaps that is the biggest draw – their worlds are so different from mine. Their priorities are askew in my world. Yet I read the fairy tales happily...
