About this audiobook

Are you interested in writing a thrilling romantic suspense but not sure how to start?

Do you love reading romantic suspense novels and wonder how they’re put together?

Romantic suspense is one of the most popular subgenres of romance to write. However, it isn’t easy to juggle a strong and compelling romantic relationship with the intrigue and suspense of a well-crafted thriller.

In this book, you’ll learn:

• The expected elements of a romance.

• The expected elements in a suspense.

• The eight basic romantic suspense plot types.

• When and where to choreograph romantic and sexy scenes between the breakneck pace of action and danger.

• Recommended reading for each plot type.

I’m been writing for over ten years and have currently written and published more than sixty romances and romantic suspense novels. I learned everything I could about story structure, writing romances, and reading mystery and suspense thrillers; however, it was hard to find books or courses on writing romantic suspense.

Therefore, after reading hundreds of romances, mysteries, thrillers, and romantic suspense novels, and studying story structure and characterization, as well as on-the-job writing and critiquing, I put together this book to help you write thrilling and successful romantic suspense novels.
