How to Write Swoon Worthy Romance

How to Write a Swoon Worthy Sweet Romance by Victorine E. Lieske
Five stars for this very helpful book on how to write sweet romance. After an introduction about the basic rules of romance, the author inserted in the book one of her romance novel and analysed it step by step, explaining her plot choices and underlining how to heighten the tension and conflict. I think this technique is brilliant. Although I don’t read or write sweet romance (sorry)  I found the book extremely helpful to understand how to build tension between two characters. At the end of the book, there’s also a list of tropes the author uses for her books. A good inspiration for a plot.
