Earlier this week, I was thinking about why my heroine wants to be with the hero. What it is about him that sets him apart from other men vying for her affection. She’s been on a self-imposed Man-Free diet for last year and a half and busy trying to straighten out other areas of her life. Getting into a relationship is the last thing on her to do list. The hero has been burned one too many times and isn’t willing to risk getting hurt and used again.
They meet and they don’t like each other. He’s jerkish and she’s Oscar worthy dramatic. But as the story moves forward and as they spend more time together, they start to see the other in a different light. Eventually every time they’re with the other person, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta singing You’re The One That I Want plays in their mind.
So why is your hero the one your heroine wants? Why is your heroine the one your hero wants?
I’ll post my answers in the comment section.
