I didn’t think I’d like this movie.

I disliked the trailers – they featured mostly action scenes, lame action humour (most of which does not appear in the film, btw), with a small side helping of mild, low-conflict romance.

Plus, I think I’ve become suspicious of all A-list action-romances since The Lost City and Shotgun Wedding, which were both pretty ‘mid’ (as my son would say).

But, hey Mikey, I liked it!


Hi, I’m Winter. Welcome!

This blog is about romance — the concept of romance, the science of romance, romance movies, romance writing, and my experiences as a romance writer.

Please sign up below to receive my monthly newsletter with updates on my books, my writing life, and the world of romance, plus links to my latest posts.

And yes, I write contemporary romance novels!


My books:

  • Feature gamma heroes (i.e. alphas without the arrogance)
  • Are set internationally
  • Include on the page love scenes, but don’t use graphic language
  • Always include a dramatic, satisfying “I love you” conclusion
  • Are fairly short (around 250 pages), so you can get to that “I love you” fast
