Start with a strong loveable heroine and a swoon-worthy hero boyfriend. Add chemistry, connection, and quirky secondary characters. Mix in conflict, adhesion, and repulsion. Bake at 50,000 words. Frost with a tear-jerking tear apart. Ice with HFA or HFN. Plate your perfect romance that will have your readers leaving rave reviews and craving the next serving of your sweet romance.
