What are the characteristics of the Gothic Romance?
#15
I always had this vision of a Gothic romance including some form of a sinister mansion/house, and the setting seems to be perpetually dark. I write romantic suspense and there's always a storm breweing, or plenty of 'night-scenes' in my books. My heroines continually find themselves in peril and inevitably end up running along ocean cliffs to flee whatever terror that's after them. (I don't know how they get themselves into such situations!) Rolleyes

Anyway, that was my formula for Gothic romance. Sinister house. Beautiful woman in danger. Hot, eccentric guy who must overcome all the nasty storms I put in the book. Yep. That's it Big Grin
