Romantic Heroines Top Ten Don'ts.

Surprisingly, some of the Romantic Hero's Top Ten Don'ts are Top Ten Do's for a heroine. But we're looking at Don't during this post, so here goes.
1. Don't go to the toilet. Unless to repair face ravaged by weeping.
2. Don't ever think the hero is nice on first meeting. Gorgeous, totally lustworthy, but never nice.
3. No clinging like a limpet to hero. Not until first three quarters of book done anyway.

4. Don't look at another man once Hero has locked lips. Unless in 'what was I thinking?' way.
5. Don't get stuff caught in teeth, never a good look. She may be realistic, but not that realistic.
6. Don't show him the love child that you made together on that chance meeting. Let him track you down.
7. Don't complain about his morning breath. Somehow it's always minty fresh.
8. Don't look disappointed as he reveals all.
9. No farting or burping. Even after mexican meals.
10. Don't give up on him, even when he's being a macho jerk. You love him, remember?

Any others I haven't thought of?


  1. Comparing Hero to her father is not a good one IMHO. Take care. Caroline x

  2. Brilliant!! Will keep this list for future reference.

  3. Can I also add: Never say 'is that it?' after the first love scene. If you haven't been to heaven and back then the guy you're with is clearly not the hero. ;-)

  4. Caroline, you're so right there. Creepy. Lacey and Kristi, glad you enjoyed it and Jackie, that really should have been my number 1!

  5. Hi Sally,
    Thanks for touring down under. :) Congratulations on the finished wips. lol I had to laugh at Jackie's comment. But doesn't it get better as time goes on or is the explosion right off. lol lol.. Hey Jackie? :)

    Congrats on the NaNo winner Sally. Well done. It's a mighty accomplishment. I had a bit of a struggle in the beginning but it sorted out thank heavens. lol.
    Suzanne :) I love seeing smiling faces on my blog. :) ta.

  6. Hi Suzanne! Thanks for the congrats and here's another smiley face for ya :)
