Ladies: Love is difficult at the best of times. The squeal-worthy feeling of in-love-ness doesn’t last forever, and eventually we are faced with a person we chose while we were letting our libido rule our choices. Choosing wisely is paramount, even for a short love affair. Gut reactions can be the best ones, but we need a measure of caution along with that sexual attraction that gets an initial love affair off to a wonderful beginning.
No one understands love better than a romance novelist. When you’re in the business of dreaming up steamy love scenes and intense relationships, you learn a lot along the way. We asked the authors behind Passion & Danger, a new 10 book set, to share their ultimate love lesson for achieving a happily ever after from each of their 10 stories.
