Romance novels often climax with a ‘Happily Ever After’ (HEA), leaving readers basking in love’s triumphant glow. However, is HEA mandatory? Not necessarily. While conventional, HEA isn’t the only resolution. Romance is about emotional journeys and relationship exploration. It’s the path, the hurdles, and the shared experiences that capture readers’ hearts, not solely the final destination. Sometimes, a realistic or open-ended conclusion can resonate deeper, reflecting life’s unpredictability. ‘Happy For Now’ endings are increasingly popular. Therefore, while HEA is a favored tradition, it’s not an absolute requirement for a compelling romance novel. The essence lies in love’s portrayal.
I finally received the cover to the second book in the Saved by the Baby Series. I love how it are turning out.
