Romantic Suspense and Roller Coasters

Why do I read and write romantic suspense? I enjoy the thrill, the ups and downs, and the exhilaration at the last word...the end. It's like riding a roller coaster. The excitement and mixed reservations of meeting that one special person is like the emotions experienced when the bar locks you in the seat of a roller coaster and you begin that first slow rise to the top. Danger lurks and the heroine of a romantic suspense has the feeling of being chased by someone or something just out of reach--the roller coaster begins a fast race to the bottom of the hill. The heroine is falling in love but can she trust the hero? The roller coaster streaks around a curve, climbs again and drops in a breathtaking dive. Something drives a wedge between the heroine and hero--the roller coaster begins a quick series of ups and downs and threatens to run off the track. Danger catches up with the heroine and she must save herself before the roller coaster climbs the highest hill and drops at speeds to defy gravity. The hero and heroine realize their love is true and forever as the roller coaster glides safely to a stop.

Have you ridden a roller coaster lately? Joshua's Hope will soon be released. If you'd like to ride my roller coaster romantic suspense, get in line for your ticket.
