We’ve been celebrating reunited lovers all week long on the RT Daily Blog, sharing some of our favorite books and investigating some of this month’s new releases that feature reunion romances. But what actually makes these stories so near to our hearts? Today we’ll share our views and get the scoop from five authors whose tales of love lost and found have us swooning!
RT’s Morgan loves reading this type of story because, “there is an instant back story created when characters reunite. If a hero and heroine are meeting for the first time, the pacing in some stories can stretch a readers’ belief that they will rush into a relationship. But if the hero and heroine have a past together, the story moves along at a much more natural pace.”
RT’s Whitney is always happy to pick up a tale of reunited lovers because, “It’s like the ultimate happy ending. Even when it seems like a relationship is over, done, dead in the ground, love conquers all and brings the couple back together. And frequently, the relationship is better for everyone the second time around, characters are older, wiser and often more careful with their loved one’s heart!”
