Contrary to my MSWL, someone please send me an over the top romance. A romance that will take my breath away and fill me with all the emotions. Something layered, complex, and beautiful. A romance that reeks of teen spirit (pun intended)!

A romance that straddles that in between space of not quite a kid, not yet an adult. Of figuring out who you are & how you fit in the world, both alone & together. A romance that fills you with that feeling of infinite possibilities, even if the horizon is uncertain. #mswl

#MSWL I'd love a gothic romance set in a location full of culture/history and featuring a dark and damaged hero(es?) reminiscent of Wrath! (Doesn't have to be a vampire, but no ghosts, please!)

#MSWL adult paranormal romance set in the locations we all love... Akin to HBO's Carnival Row in foggy London, or KMM's Fever series in culture-rich Ireland

#MSWL I'll start with the one I've wanted the longest and still haven't found... Someone PLEASE send me a lighthearted, humorous, small-town Paranormal Romance! Think Hart of Dixie + True Blood!

My favorite reality show, The Challenge, returns tonight. And I've been thinking about how much I want a strategic, athletic, game show romance with all of the drama, all of the stunts and endurance, all of the conniving, backstabbing, strategizing, etc. #MSWL

Also, I'm going to climb very far out onto this limb and say I want a really intricate, cool, sexy merman book that feels like a modern fantasy romance. A Game of Fins.
Yeah, I said it. #MSWL

In a romance synopsis I'm always looking for:
*do they spend a lot of time together?
*why are they so into each other?
*what is the obstacle, ON BOTH SIDES, to the romance?
*what are the character arcs...how do they both change/learn/grow?

4. Would love to get a romance with AAPI main characters, from romcom to beautiful and heartfelt. Open to published authors without agents here, and we can start with the synopsis. DM me in September for contact info.

2. Emotional stories and series ideas specifically geared toward Mahogany original movies, romance or women's fiction. Robyn Carr's Virgin River series on Netflix is a good comp here.
