Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?
12/31/2011 12:34:06 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

How much adventure do you want in your romance?

Let's face it...we all feel the same way Indiana Jones does about snakes. There is absolutely no place for a snake in a romance novel.


In a review of JUNGLE OF DECEIT, a reader cited a scene with a snake and stated, if I were there I would have been saying "come on feet don't fail me now." 


Alex, the heroine has very little fear of snakes except for the deadly fer-de-lance. But our reluctant hero, Mitch, harbors an Indiana-like aversion towards the reptiles. For that fact, he has an aversion to monkeys, rodents, mosquitoes and any creature that makes noise at night.


That is my idea of a hero. A man with vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities that he will tackle if it means saving his woman. I don't like snakes, but they are the nature of romantic suspense. Instead of delving their toes in a pristine beach, these characters are thrown into a jungle full of snakes and howler monkeys. Love needs its obstacles, right?
