If you write inspirational romantic suspense that is fast paced, exciting and full of danger, I'd love to see it for Love Inspired Suspense. #ownvoices authors welcome and encouraged. Check out guidelines here: harlequin.submittable.com/submit/29572/l…
I'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
I'm looking for juicy inspirational romantic suspense books that will fit Love Inspired Suspense. Clean reads, lots of danger and suspense, satisfying romance, not preachy. Think characters on the run from danger who fall in love while fighting to stay alive.
I'm looking for juicy romantic suspense stories that fit the guidelines for Love Inspired Suspense: 55k words, edge of your seat read, inspirational (i.e. no sensuality, cursing, drinking, gore, etc.). I do want high drama, action, danger and a fully-developed romance. #MSWL
I'm actively seeking inspirational romantic suspense of 55k words. Agents welcome but not required. To get an idea for tone, read recent @LoveInspiredBks.
Inspirational = wholesome w/ characters of faith
Inspirational does not = preachy
Suspense = edge of your seat danger
Witness Protection without the suspense/danger angle would still be a really juicy story. A great conflict & roadblock to love when you can't tell your potential love who you really are. Would love to see this for Love Inspired (contemp, insp. romance, 55k words). #MSWL
