Loving Romantic Suspense

Hi there- I’m JM Griffin, and I’m excited to be Hannah’s guest blogger today. It will be fun to share my love of romance, suspense and humor with you.

For me, there is nothing better than escaping into a world where you become intrigued by characters that can make you feel their joy, sadness, laughter and romance. Where you try to figure out who did the dirty deed. I must say though, I enjoy a healthy dose of humor laced with a good measure of irony mixed into the story, too. Especially since real life is often all too serious.

Romance has to be an integral part of the story, whether it is sweet or of the hot and heavy variety, it simply has to be there. After all, isn’t that what romantic suspense is about? Mysterious happenings fueled by a romantic encounter between the characters, a great story filled with spine tingling events driven by attraction too overpowering to resist. The sort of attraction that makes you hold your breath and squirm in your seat.

Curling up on the sofa sipping a glass of wine, munching Hershey kisses and covered with my comfy blanket, a good book is the best way I know of to remove oneself from the strife of everyday life. Sink down and enjoy the story, wile away the time in a brief encounter with strong characters and a rich suspense ridden story.

Thanks Hannah & Happy Reading Everyone!


  1. I love a good romantic suspense novel too. And a little humor can help lighten things up when it starts getting too "dark". I loved the humor in the Indiana Jones movies, for instance, which set the tone much lighter than it could have been. :)

  2. I love suspense but hate gore. When an author goes for the gross out, I quietly close the book. (I've stopped watching CSI, though I love the characters, for just that reason!)

    However, your light-hearted tone doesn't sound like I need fear any entrails or other nasty stuff. Thanks!
