Marina Adair

In celebration of her new release, A Taste of Sugar, Marina Adair is here to share her some of her favorite romance tropes. Please help me welcome her to That’s What I’m Talking About!

Top 5 favorite romance tropes

Adair_A Taste of Sugar_MMEnemies to Lovers. There is so much natural conflict that comes when two people who can’t stand each other—and also can’t seem to keep their hands off each other.

Best Friend’s Sister/Brother. Nothing is nobler than walking away from the one person you want, but can’t have. And nothing is more heroic, and down right sexy, than when a man says screw the consequences and goes after the girl. It creates a complex hero who I always find myself rooting for.

Friends to Lovers. When characters have a history, it makes finding the motivation for “why now” that much harder. It also makes that story that much more compelling, and their HEA that much more romantic.

Fish Out of Water. Taking a big city girl and tossing her into a small town makes for a fun, funny, and flirty read. Especially when she’s paired with a small town, country boy who likes to ruffle her fancy, faux feathers.

The One Who Got Away. This is my all time favorite trope, and happens to be what Charlotte is for Jace is my newest release A TASTE OF SUGAR. Only Charlotte can’t get too far since it turns out she’s still married to the wildest of the McGraw brothers. I love stories that explore second chances at first love, because the obstacles are always bigger, the emotions run deeper, and the hero and heroine will rip your heart out before they figure out how to find their HEA.

About the Book:

A TASTE OF SUGAR by Marina Adair
(August 25, 2015; Forever Mass Market; Sugar, Georgia #3)

A blast from her past…

Charlotte Holden, Sugar’s favorite pediatrician, knows better than anyone that love only leads to heartbreak. Instead, she’s focused on creating the Grow Clinic, an outpatient center for children. All she has to do now is to host the best Founder’s Day Parade in the history of Sugar, Georgia, to win over a big-city donor. Easy as peach pie. Then sexy Jace McGraw blows back into town and utters those three words every woman dreads: we’re still married.

…leads to tantalizing trouble

Jace McGraw was making an offer on his dream business in Atlanta when he was told that his wife had some credit issues. Wait, his wife? The annulment went through years ago—or so he thought.  He’d walked away only to keep his troublemaker reputation from ruining her dreams. But now that they have a second chance, Jace offers Charlotte a deal: he’ll grant a discreet divorce in exchange for 30 days and nights of marriage. Because this time he isn’t going to let her go without a fight.
