Leading off of that is “second chance.” Many people narrow this trope to a couple who was once together but split up for some reason and are now trying again. Personally, I expand it to include people who are looking for love in a second (or third) relationship because their first ended in death or divorce. This is a really strong trope for older characters, because let’s be honest…there are very few forty-plus year old people who haven’t had at least one serious relationship.
In Strictly by the Book (releasing Thursday—squeeeee!!!!) you’ll find several popular tropes:
A trope I enjoy as a reader but probably will never write is “billionaire.” After all, who wouldn’t mind falling in love with a powerful man or woman who has driven themselves to succeed and now can treat their lover to anything their heart desires?
What tropes do you enjoy? What themes get you to immediately pick up a book? Let me know below.
