High Stakes

“I’d love a super feminine adventure story. Think mystery, high stakes, and difficult situations mixed with bright colours, glitter, and gemstones.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

honestly, i want to read books about unabashedly non-alpha males that rise to the occasion in high stakes situations and it being perfectly feasible, kind of like legally blonde but for soft dads with secret pockets for a machete in their baby carriers. #mswl

#MSWL send me your unlikely friendship stories (20 yo & 80 yo), friendship novels in general (need really high stakes though!)

I'm especially looking for some intensely romantic and smart NA. Any genre, high stakes, something new. (No abusive backstories) #MSWL

Brilliant world-building, compelling characters, high stakes & emotional depth. Don't have to like characters, but must be invested. #MSWL

Sarah Levitt @slevittslevitt · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL SFF romance featuring protagonists who use their brains and daring to outwit oppressors

Replying to @DebNemeth

#MSWL Romances with high emotional stakes and conflict that’s hard to resolve, requiring tough decisions, character change, sacrifice

"High stakes stories about moral dilemmas within dark family secrets (i.e. The Light Between Oceans, The Nest, Honor)" @carlywatters #MSWL

New year, same #MSWL. But I do wish for: more teeth. More ferocity. Higher stakes. Lives in the balance. Unnormal books for unnormal times.
