The course of love never runs straight, especially if you want to write an interesting story. One of the biggest challenges in a romance series is to keep the romance itself interesting, and one of the most entertaining ways to do that is to throw in romantic conflicts. In order to show real attraction between characters, there has to be something there trying to pull them apart, and not just the giant man-eating bear that’s hunting them.read more
Perhaps because I started out as a horror writer, I often get tapped to write the darker stuff when it comes to romance subgenres. Last season, it was masked vigilantes in the Black Mask series. This season, it is billionaire bear shifters facing a conflict over shifters’ relationship with humanity. The Hunting Club series centers on a secretive lodge of wealthy bear shifters that claims territory out in the mountains south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Unlike many shifter series, in which the bears are heroic figures who swoop in to rescue the humans they end up connected with, in Hunting Club the bears are divided into two groups, one of which protects humans, and the other of which wants to essentially wage a secret war on them. The romantic lead must protect his beloved mate from not only his own father, but from the result of one of his father’s experiments: a monstrous, human-eating bear-shifter hybrid named Graypaw.read more
