from Issue #50
Tagline: Joan had just enough money for her twins to have their Christmas wish...would the handsome store manager be able to help?
Observations: I haven't pointed out a man to the rescue story in a long time. The man to the rescue story can be about a woman to the rescue too, but there's something about it being the man that I think resonates a little more strongly with the Woman's World readers, because the majority are women.
I mean, look at Steve Lind. The heroine has a big problem and the guy goes way above and beyond the call of duty to help her solve it. If the man does this kind of thing for a total stranger, what might he do for the woman he loves?
In part, our job as romance authors is to create that perfect hero, the man the reader wants to fall in love with. One way to do that (quickly, in 800 words) is to show a man who not only talks the talk, he walks the walk.
Favorite line: "Sure. It's the season for miracles, right?"
