Recent Trends in Romance

You know, one trend I’ve seen in the last couple years or so is where the heroine sees what needs to be done and charges forward with all her doubts and insecurities screaming at her. Even if she fails, succeeds or makes a mess of things, she takes ownership and becomes a better person for it, with or without the hero’s help. This new heroine can be bitchy but we sympathize or a wimp who we cheer on. I like this woman. She’s real with her many layers. And I love the men who love her despite hers and his flaws.
