I Heart Romantic-Thrillers (And finally wrote my own.)

I love romantic thrillers. I'm a sucker for an epic love story that makes me root for the hero/heroine but also has a heavy thrill factor.  Born Free was probably the first rom-thrill I fell in love with. (Don't laugh - I was but a small child.)

The movie was about Elsa the young lioness and the struggles her human caretakers endured to ensure she could 'live free'. (To this day I know the words to this sappy song.)

Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis and Madeline Stowe is burned into my heart. Oh good God the romance - epic!

The Bourne Identity movie just about killed me with all its twists and turns. It was so flippin good - and the romance? Sigh.

 Twilight - Say what you will but author Stephenie Meyers tapped into this rom-thrill genre in a big way.

Ditto Suzanne Collins with her fabulous The Hunger Games trilogy.

I finally fell for the muse and write my own romantic thriller. It's called The Messenger's Handbook.

"What if you discovered that your soul mate lived three centuries before you were even born? Sixteen-year-old Madeline learns that falling in love, and falling through time doesn't have to be accidental, could be deadly, but is worth the fight of her life."

It has twists and turns, deception, revenge, action-adventure. It's a Rom-Thrill. 

It's a FREE Kindle download this Friday-Sat. 5/18/12 to 5/19/12!
