Love Found in Romance Stories
…his lips awakened her senses, filling her being with an erotic fire that could light up the night sky. Hmm, can you feel his arms tighten, in order to keep her against him? Or do your senses rush in to capture the full masculine essence of the man. Do your fingers flex to keep their hold on to his stiff shirt as your palm presses against the thunder of his heartbeats? All this and more are found within the pages of a romance story.
Can you remember the first romance novel you ever read? That love story that moved you out of the horse or mystery stories and into this magical world where love could be found and would prevail against all the odds. Did you groan every time you were forced to put the story down and return to the real world? An eternity would pass before you were able to come back to those memorable characters and their world. When those final words were read and the tears ran down your cheek, the characters and their story would stay with you far beyond the ending.
Romance stories are so much more than just a quick read and love scenes. A romance is like walking into another world and becoming part of the story. Being part of a story is a far cry from being an observer or sitting on the sidelines waiting for something to happen. No, when you are in a romance story you are a participant of that story. You move when they move, you feel what they experience, you are the character. Everything that happens is seen through your character’s eyes, you feel every breath, those warm touches and chaste kisses, yes, the characters bring the story alive.
Your favorite author is the one that makes the magic happen for you. When you pick up that story there is no hesitation, no worry or fear, you know you are on a thrill ride of sensations. The experience is a solitary adventure, one that allows you to leave all your worries and life’s chores in the laundry bin. You may jump into a stagecoach being shot at by robbers, the cavalry will come to the rescue and in a flash of awareness you have found your hero. Or he may come speeding in your life in a space ship, filled with adventures from other galaxies and beyond.
Heroes can hide in the most unlikely of places. A dark hero may already be lurking in the shadows, waiting for you to see him, find him when all others failed. He could be the one leading a force of barbarians, soldiers armed to the teeth, ready to cut you down or worse. He could be the force that captures you, takes you far away from your family and friends, leave life as you know it. Ahh, but your hero would never allow anything so heinous to happen to you. Only a hero can rush in and sweep you up in his arms, sheltering you from any harm. Love comes instantly to your heart, it may not be returned, but you feel it in your heart, you know it is real.
You may have to fight to survive. That’s right, you will fight, battle to keep this newfound love alive and safe. You may even defy your lover to insure the love you carry is not harmed or damaged in any way. So the world you now exist in is new and different, nothing like your former life, but you adjust and learn how to live in this world. Why do we go to such lengths? What force drives us on when we fear all around us? Love…Love for another that is so strong it has reached across the time barriers, jumped the stars, created new worlds, entered into the darkness. Love is the strongest of all forces.
Love will prevail, but not without battles between you and your hero. No matter the outcome or the evil that persists to keep the two of you apart, love will always find a way to your heart. You will never give up, never quit believing, never stop hoping that your hero will find you. Together the two of your will hold on to each other in love for all eternity.
Don’t be afraid to find love. If you have never looked before, now is the time. Romance comes in a gambit of genres, every taste and desire is available. You can fly through space, travel back in time, drive a wagon in the old west or fight knights in kingdoms of old, and there is nothing lacking in the romances found right here and now. And when it comes to loving our heroes, you can do so behind closed doors, take a thrilling afternoon off from work or climb up into that four-poster bed and enjoy what ever comes. Just remember, you may have to fight to hold on to that hero.
Your love can be found right here on the internet, at your favorite ebook store or library. Now is the time to step out, take a chance and look for your hero. Don’t be shy, take it nice and slow or just grab one and race to your special place. With the lights turned down, cuddle up in your favorite chair and open your next romance, your next true love.
As those embers of love and the battles to keep it safe are slowly fading from the world, you won’t let go. The love you found in his arms will be kept safe in your heart, tucked away from all prying eyes, to be taken out and experienced by you and you alone. Once this kind of love is found, it can never die, never be corrupted or lost, for romance always wins and love is forever…endless.
