Why I Write Romance

Up until my sophomore year of high school, I didn’t consider myself much of a reader. I was much more interested in sports and outdoor activities than “boring” reading. That all changed on a trip to the Outer Banks with my best friend, Jackie. She was a big reader and suggested I borrow a few books from her huge collection to keep me occupied on what would be a thirteen-hour drive to the coast.

The first book I dove into ended up being a pirate adventure, though I wish I could remember the actual title and author. I can still see the cover -- a woman in a Victorian era dress draped in the arms of a handsome pirate rogue with a muscled body visible through the opening of his shirt, which somehow ended up unbuttoned to the waist. One steamy romantic adventure later, I was hooked. I spent the next few years devouring romances and by my freshman year of college, I was finishing them at a pace of 2-3 a week. If I wasn’t buying them, I was borrowing them from Jackie. By the time I went to college, I had a bookshelf full of romance -- and wished I had been born someplace in the 17th century about a million times.

When I started to write seriously, it was just a natural progression for me to write romance. Even stories I had no plans to make into romances when I started them, seemed to progress in the direction of romance. Some days I think I write it because it is just natural, others I think I write it because I still harbor a desire to live in the 17th century. Others still, I decide I must be trying to live out some fantasy relationship by writing epic love stories.

I don’t think about it so much anymore, and try not to analyze the stories I write. I’m a Virgo, and if I allow myself, I could analyze myself into old age. Besides, my muse is far too fickle to allow for that much probing into his motivations.

These days I just take out my laptop, and let my fingers have at it. Usually what comes out contains elements of fantasy and, generally, is peppered with at least a dash of romance. It is far too good an ingredient to leave out. And, so far, the recipe seems to be working for me.


Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Thanks to the cursed Selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O'Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Siren's Call. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.

Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other in order to quell the raging storm between them or have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
