Veronica Forand | When Twelve Heartbreakers Are Better Than One Hero

twitterfacebook

I love romances. Not only writing them, but reading them as well.

When I was invited into the Heartbreaker and Heroes anthology, I was not only excited to write with some of my favorite authors, but I also had the chance to read the stories before anyone else!!!

A few things I learned about our heroes:

  1. They all had rough childhoods, whether from abuse, neglect, or caught in a bad situation.
  2. Most of them don’t want to fall in love, but their hearts override their fears.
  3. Falling in love with men who have had a difficult past isn’t easy, but the heroines are tough enough to handle what ever comes along.
  4. Whether billionaire, biker, cop, or cowboy, heroes are all around us.
  5. Sometimes heartbreakers should be left in the dust. Other times, they are completely redeemable.

I must admit I threw in some thriller elements to my story. I can’t help it. The story of a cop who tries and fails to rescue a woman from an abusive father had to go somewhat dark. But between writers like Jennie Marts and Jodi Linton, there are lots of humorous stories in the mix as well.
