For romance, my current #MSWL is Romantic Suspense; Amish or Inspirational; Feminist AF contemporary romance; and #OwnVoices love stories. <3

#MSWL Inspy/Christian thriller like Cara Putnam’s HIDDEN JUSTICE series except with a religious yet ultra strong, savvy & compassionate lead female detective. This MSWL inspired by Dateline Secrets Uncovered Good & Evil episode’s real-life Detectice Trapp. She’s the lead I want.

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

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

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

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · 12 Sep 2018

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

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · 6 Jun 2018

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

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · 21 May 2018

I'm always seeking 55K inspirational romantic suspense. High drama, suspense and danger, sweet romance. #MSWL

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 4 May 2018

Hey did I mention I am looking for inspirational and mainstream category romance? Would love to see things that fit Love Inspired, Hallmark, Harlequin Heartwarming, etc. More sweet than salty. #MSWL Query me: querymanager.com/query/1032
