I have been wrestling with my latest romantic suspense and sometimes not winning the battle. Finally after a lot of bruises and cuts, I think I've come up with what I want to do in the rest of the book. I think you can tell I'm a seat of the pants writer.
But as I was plotting out the story, I kept coming back to the question what makes a story a suspense. I would love to hear what others think makes a suspense. I need a sense of danger. It doesn't always have to be on the page, but the feeling needs to be there that danger lurks just waiting to strike. I however have to throw in a mystery element, too. I need a puzzle to solve.
So what do you like in a romantic suspense? Don't forget that if you comment your name is thrown in for the monthly drawing for the four current Love Inspired Suspense books.
