I'd love to see a duo of switched at birth stories with the characters finding out as adults. And the discovery leading to them each finding love matches. Either inspirational romantic suspense or contemporary romance. #mswl

I kind of want to see a contemporary romance submission that involves no children but a lot of puppies instead. Maybe a litter of adorableness brings the hero and heroine together. #MSWL
