Great characterization is the key!
Great characterization is the key to a great romance novel. We need to create complex, surprising, and unforgettable characters. Loveable, realistic and believable characters. Flesh and blood characters. Readers must be able to identify with, and become attached to, both the heroine and the hero so they will invest their emotions in the story. There must be enough chemistry between the two main characters to make readers want to see them end up together.
