Some Danger With Your Romance?
By Mina Kahn
Oh yes! It’s an honor and great pleasure to represent my wonderful Kiss of Death chapter of RWA because I love suspense mixed in with my romance.
While I write paranormal romance where otherworldly creatures and dimensions are front and center, all my stories are really about romance – characters falling in love and finding their happy ending. However, I want my hero and heroine to earn that happy ending.
To up the challenge, I thread in suspense to my story and that adds danger, threat and a worthy and cunning villain. And what better way to showcase the paranormal abilities of my characters than throwing some murder and mayhem in their way, how better to prove my strong heroine than put her in real danger? All of this adds tension to the story, and that’s what keeps the reader reading.
So, to be technically correct, I should say I write Paranormal Erotic Romantic Suspense…but that would give my agent and editor heartburns, so I’ll stick with paranormal romance with an edge of suspense. Does it work?
Mina is one of the many talented authors who belong to the Romance Writers of America’s Kiss of Death chapter. At Kiss of Death we believe that every great romance should include suspense. Whether a spy thriller in Regency times, a paranormal romance with a revenge-seeking zombie, or a traditional serial killer after the heroine, romance relies on suspense, leading the reader through the trials of the heroine and hero to see if they will get their happily ever after ending. If you can call your writing suspenseful, then the Kiss of Death has something for you! Find out more and join at http://www.rwamysterysuspense.
