But there are some tropes that are popular for a reason, and if done in a fresh, unique way, Harlequin editors love them. I’m currently editing an amnesia story, for example, by Jill Monroe. She came up with a brilliant and sexy twist that makes the story interesting and new.
And you’d think we’d have published every cowboy romance plot possible, but our authors continue to innovate new storylines. For example, New York Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson has a new trilogy that explores foster brothers raised on ranches but who have contemporary jobs, including one who owns a microbrewery. And she’s just one of several authors who’ve got a cowboy series in Blaze. We really can’t get enough of them, and they’re all different!
