How appropriate that the new Harlequin “clean” series of romances launches out of the Toronto head office just in time for Canada Day. They even gave us the day off up here in the nosebleed north in honour of it! I predict fireworks….
At 70,000 to 75,000 words, these aren’t short stories. And I’d like to ask the authors on this blog how hard it’s been to write a longer romance…when the attraction is far more than simply physical, and emotional tenderness takes precedence over sensuality. I suspect for some writers, the “cleaner” storyline is easier to write than others, but I’d love to hear it firsthand!
