Sticky Note: The Heroine's Fears and Flaws

A great romance has the hero figuring out the woman’s fear – maybe prying it out of her, maybe just knowing her enough to realize the truth. And as he figures it out, he begins to address it. To make her feel safe, or even try and overcome that fear. See, women also want to be protected, even if they don’t admit it. So, as your hero becomes more heroic, the woman will release her fears.  And overcome her flaws.

  1. Great quote, Carla! Women do want to be protected, cherished, pursued. All the makings of a great novel:)
