I got my first short story published in Black Romance magazine back in 1997. And although it was a relationship story (as it had to be) there was a level of mystery in it as well. The character falls asleep on a bus ride home and her story begins when she gets dropped off on a dark street.
And when I began to get published in novel form my romances always held some level of mystery or suspense. My second novel Indiscretions was a murder mystery, Temptation featured a character that was hiding his true identity, Wicked Ways and Getting Hers is murder and mayhem gone wild, and Guilty Pleasures is all about the con. Those are just a few examples.
Because my reading tastes are entrenched in the mystery and suspense genre I love to throw a curve ball into my romances and it gives (to me) another level to the romance and a challenge for the couples. And in the reverse, my mainstream fiction always has the challenge of a relationship beneath it and that comes from my years of romance writing and the demands of writing a romance which insists that relationships are developed.
I think it’s a great marriage and I hope that my readers do as well!
