Subplot Quotes By Lauren Willig

Subplot Quotes By Jayne Ann Krentz

The hero in a romance is the most important challenge the heroine must face and conquer. The hero is her real problem in the book, not whatever trendy issue or daring adventure is also going on in the subplot.

He must present a genuine threat. — Jayne Ann Krentz

Samuelson
