Ah, romance tropes! Love ’em or hate ’em, they still abound in modern romance releases.
From arranged marriages and secret babies, to friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, and everything in between, tropes are here to stay.
It is so stinkin’ hard to pick a favorite! I love a good (bad) anti-hero. I love a villain turned by love. I love the hooker with a heart of gold. 😉
For this hop, though, I’m going to go with one (or two) I’ve written. My book Star Catcher has an enemies to lovers undertone, as well as a captive falling for her captor. I did twist it up a bit, though, as Stella falls for her alien, Noth, before she is accidentally captured for the Artanian breeding program. And she doesn’t realize he is an enemy until she is head over heals for him.
My MM book Forever is Now has another trope. It’s the ex-lovers reunite after years apart. I’ve got a soft spot for that one as well. 😉 Alex and Chance were lovers in high school. After a catastrophic breakup, they go their separate ways, forging their careers on opposite sides of the country. They never really got over “the one,” though, and when they are reunited as enemies, they can’t help the sparks that still fly between them.
I’m giving away a copy of either book to a random participant for my personal giveaway. Comment to be eligible.

Thanks, H.B.! Book two, Double Takes, is in edits and due for an end of April release. I can’t wait to have it out in the big bad world! If you win, we’ll have to find you something you haven’t read yet. 😉

I’m hooked on a few tropes myself. Currently I find myself reading lots of non-con and dub-con so I’m thinking Star Catcher is going to be right up my alley, hmmm? 😉 Thx for the giveaway.

I like a variety of tropes–enemies to lover; best friends to lovers; and BBW–big girl gets the guy–are some of my favorites.

I found it so difficult to find a trope too. I never realised you needed one. Cheers Kimber.

I love almost any trope, but enemies to lovers is one of my favorites!
I, too, love those bad boys. 😉
They both sound like wonderful books! Thank you for the giveaway.
