Anyone else write fantasy with heavy elements of romance? Let’s chit-chat.
I could use help with my fantasy romance.
My main novel I tend to rework every November is actually two novels, and I have a dilemma regarding the romance aspect. The first novel focuses heavily on a time-limited adventure, so there isn’t much room to grow the slow burn romance I want between the two protagonists; they’re too busy racing to save someone and trying not to get killed. There’s some romantic and sexual tension in a few scenes, but not a heavy amount.
I just wonder if it’d be weird to develop a large chunk of that relationship in the second novel, or if I have to somehow rework the first to find more room for the relationship. I worry more because I want to add erotic scenes. Book one would just seem sexless and all-business, but then book two would seemingly change genre and go all-out. Arrrgh.
