Favourite Romance Tropes with Jennifer St George and Giveaway!


Let's discuss Favourite Romance Tropes with author Jennifer St George today...

Favourite Romance Tropes

 

Do you have a favourite Romance Trope? Cinderella, Marriage of Convenience, Secret Baby, Amnesia or Lovers Parted Then United? I really like reading ‘wounded hero’ stories so it’s no surprise my first couple of novels included characters with very tragic histories.


 

The Billionaire’s Pursuit of Love is my first ‘second chance/lovers united’ story. I loved writing this story. The premise is:

 

When Sarah Walker's beloved wildlife sanctuary is threatened with closure, she heads for London and goes straight to the top to find out why. But the man responsible is the one man she's never forgotten, and the only person who can destroy all her happiness.

Billionaire CEO Blake Huntington-Fiennes can't believe that the girl he's spent years searching for has just marched into his boardroom. And this time, he's willing to resort to any means necessary to keep her. But Sarah has a secret she must protect at all costs or risk losing something even more precious than the sanctuary…

 

Having Sarah and Blake share a brief history provided so much fertile ground for conflict. But I couldn’t help myself, both characters have experienced their fair share of misfortune.

 

Another trope I enjoy is The Marriage of Convenience, which in contemporary romance can be tricky. I used this story line for the The Convenient Bride and it was so much fun throwing two such different people together.

 

I’d love to write an amnesia story but haven’t been able to develop a credible enough concept yet.  I’ve read some really great amnesia stories so I wouldn’t want to let the trope down with a half-baked idea. I’ll keep working on this one.

 

I’m currently plotting out my next book which is shaping up to be an enemies to lovers story with a little bit of romantic suspense thrown in. It’s set in a luxury health retreat. The setting is inspired by a recent visit to a gorgeous health resort in Queensland. During my stay the whole story played out in my head. Must have been all that relaxing making my creative juices pump (there were certainly lots of fitness classes getting my body pumped).

 

So do you have a favourite story line? I’d love to hear what your favourite romantic tropes are and why. Leave a comment for a chance to win an e-copy of The Billionaire’s Pursuit of Love.
