The topic? Love of course! And now I have Love is in the air running through my head. (As sung by Colin Firth and Rupert Everett--if you've never seen St. Trinian's, then you're missing something!)
So let's talk romance. What draws you to characters? When I read a romance, I know they're going to get together! (They damn well better!) But what draws the characters together? It's one of my favorite parts of writing: Figuring out what makes people fall in love. Opposites, similarities, old friends, old enemies.
In my opinion, love is indefinable. It's that intangible thread that weaves its way around people to draw them together even when there might not be an obvious reason why they love each other.
For instance, what brings a menage together? How do three people fall in love with each other?
Philip Thornton adored his new bride but found she was frigid in their marriage bed.
Lillian did not know how to ease her fear of the bed until she was freed from her past.
Aria was paid to educate and entice, but what she found was more than she ever dreamed possible.
The Parisian Exposition of 1889...the world is changing and the three of them are caught in its whirl. Philip and Lillian went to Paris to save their marriage and to help Lillian overcome her fears. Aria danced and seduced Lillian, but before Lillian left, Aria found herself seduced, in turn, by the beautiful Englishwoman.
When Philip and Lillian break all the rules and escort Aria around Paris for a week, will it be the beginning of their future? Or will this seductive interlude be nothing more than a dream?

And it doesn't have to be a romantic moment, love is love. Brotherly love (even when he tosses you into the pool, fully clothed, in front of all your friends); children love (like when they clean off the bottom of their sneakers when you gave them that wipe to clean their hands!) and pet love (even when the puppy eats too many rawhide pieces and has a tummy ache).
