Blazeauthors.com: Harlequin Blaze Editorial Assistant Laura Barth talks vampires, heroes, bad boys, saving cats, and her upcoming gig at the Toronto Romance Writers meeting. Point of discussion:
"I think it’s the belief that this character may be redeemable that keeps us interested. But is that what we really want?"
Is the modern independent female reader really looking for a guy they have to change? Do (loosely most but not all) women want to be the girl who changes her guy and settles him down to a life of marital (and sensual) bliss? Does a hero have to be "broken" so that the heroine gets to fix him? Discuss!
