Today’s the Love at First Sight Blogfest! I searched through my manuscripts for a love at first sight scene and realized that I don’t write love at first sight (probably because I don’t believe in it!). Instead, I excel at hate at first sight. And lust at first sight.
So I guess I’m cheating here when I recommend two recently read books for love at first sight scenes.
Roses by Leila Meacham is fabulous. Granted, I’m not done yet, but I love the main characters and there’s a definite love triangle. The dust jacket said that it was written in the style of Gone With the Wind and The Thorn Birds. It was right!
I know I’ve already gushed about this series, but I’m a total sucker for the Katniss/Peeta/Gale love triangle in The Hunger Games. And there is a love at first sight scene in the first book- you just don’t realize it when you read it. It’s soooo sweet!
Are there any other love triangle books you’d recommend? Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
I hear ya on the love at first sight thing. My books are lust at first sight as well. So I cheated and posted a scene where my characters are realizing they can't resist each other. 🙂 Have a great v-day!
Early in my novel, when my two characters meet, it's almost love at first sight. At first glance you might think that's what it is. But in reality, my MC loves what the male lead represents, not necessarily him as a person. If that makes any sense…lOl
