I have to have a HEA. If there's no happily ever after, what's the point? No HEA makes it a tragedy.

Linda Romer said...

I like my romance books to be full of love that's hard to get. Then in the end it all works out and love wins ♡ Thank you

Lysa Joseph said...

I like love at first sight kind of romance.

Lara M. said...

Anything but insta love. I love when characters fall for each other while going through things together, whether it be adventures or anything else, but seeing them getting closer to each other as they work together as a team.

Jolanda LovestoRead said...

@Lysa Joseph I love that too in een story!

Esther Gerdzen said...

Lara M i like that too !

I love romance stories with a feisty heroine, an alpha male and a strong plot.
RC- Tara Woods

Stacey Smith said...

I love romances and Paranormal are my favorite lately.love a lot of action in my books keep you at the seat of your pant's while your reading and a happy ending always.

Jolanda LovestoRead said...

@Stacey Smith Paranormal is one of my favoties too.

Susan T. said...

Jeanna Massman - Yes! Humorous banter is the best. I love it when the couple starts out teasing and insulting each other and moves on to romance!

Stacy said...

I want a believable relationship (not that they fell in love instantly) and one with strong female characters that do not lose their power/sense of self when they are in a relationship.

Stacy said...

Penny, I agree, I love romance in a sci-fi, fantasy or dystopian novel. Then it is almost surreal!

Christine Jensen said...

My favorite romances have fantastically quirky characters and humor!

Jolanda LovestoRead said...

I agree with most of what is said.
So long as they have a HEA, I am happy but I hate cliffhangers.

Susan T. said...

Red Moon - Swoony boys are the best!!! :)

Thais said...

I like characters who build a friendship before getting together! No instalove :)

Agustina Z said...

I love romance books! I like great characters with chemistry and a happily ever after. Always. I like romantic comedies but I also love a really good drama with much feelings

Agustina Z said...

I agree with @Thais. I hate instalove. But I love the stories of friends to lovers. Also enemies to lovers, those stories are usually really fun :D

Susan T. said...

Sheena-kay Graham - I hate love triangles too! I totally agree that the worst is when abuse/stalking is presented as love. Drives me crazy!

Rhiannon said...

I need some action. Not buildings blowing up, but there needs to be a problem and things not go 100% smoothly. I hate romances where the characters just fall in love and it's smooth sailing. BORING!

Rhiannon said...

@Stacy- I want a believable relationship (not that they fell in love instantly) and one with strong female characters that do not lose their power/sense of self when they are in a relationship.


I'm like you. I can't stand when the female character gets so wrapped up in a relationship they forget that they're an individual and have likes and needs, ect. that have nothing to do with their love interest.

Alina P said...

I want to feel the connection :)

Sue A. said...

There must be chemistry/connection, and mutual respect between the lead characters and for the readers reasons for us to care that they stay together.

Sue A. said...

@ Sheena-kay Graham. I also find that what passes for "acceptable" alpha male behavior in some books would be considered abusive and criminal in the real world.

Jolanda LovestoRead said...

@Sue A. I totally agree with you about the chemistry/connection.

Danielle Merkle said...

I agree with Karin, I like relatable charterers!

Buddy Garrett said...

I want passion and great characters.

_Sandra_ said...

Strong, smart, funny and passionate characters with great chemistry and slow burning romance. Also, HEA is a must! :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Agustina Z said...

I agree with @Christine Jensen. I like a book with humor, especially if it make me laugh. I love romantic comedies and even better if the characters are special :D

Susan T. said...

SavingsInSeconds - The plot is super important to me too! It can't be all about the romance!
