Tropes are everything when it comes to crafting a story.
Grace Roberts shared with us her favorite trope to write: small town romance.
|“I love writing small-town romance because I’ve always loved the idea of a tight-knit community where everyone knows everyone and you can always find a friendly face ready to lend a hand when you’re in trouble. I especially love bringing together people who have known each other all their lives but all of a sudden start seeing the other person under a different light and discover they have feelings for each other, but I also love writing about outsiders coming into town feeling like a fish out of water at first until they start warming up to the place and they change their mind about staying. A bit like a Hallmark movie – which I adore, by the way!”|
About Unplanned Love…
He’s a knight in shining armor—but she’s nobody’s damsel in distress.
All Charli Wingate wants is a successful career in the city. Marriage isn’t her thing, and kids give her hives. But when she loses her precious job, all her carefully laid-out plans crumble and she’s forced to seek refuge in the boring small town her best friend now calls home.
Kean Cavanagh wants nothing but a quiet life in his hometown with a wife and a bunch of kids. Ever the gentleman, when he sees a pretty stranger stranded on the side of the road, he’s eager to help—until he finds himself staring down the barrel of a handgun.
Her life might be in tatters, but Charli is determined not to be a damsel in distress—as Kean finds out the hard way. Whoever said that opposites attract was dead wrong. Or maybe not?
A sweet, enemies-to-lovers romance for fans of heartwarming stories and small-town settings. Unplanned Love is book two in the Love In Spring series, but it can be read on its own.
