Chemical Attraction: A Change of Perspective in a Single Defining Moment
Even before I started writing, relationships have fascinated me, especially the married ones. I love hearing the “How We Met” stories. Couples enjoy sharing their unique history. Some say, “I knew right away.” Others laugh and say, “I hated him at first.” A husband once told me that he chased after his wife for a year before convincing her he was “the one”. The stories may seem similar, but none are the same.
Whether you’ve just met or you’ve known each other for years, there’s that single defining moment when you realize you’re in love with this person. Your perspective suddenly changes, and you think, “Why didn’t I see that before?” Women have mentioned a small gesture from their one that fills them with pure joy. Warmth washes over you, goose bumps appear from a light touch, or your heart flutters with knowing.
My mom said she “knew” almost fifty years ago when my dad placed his hand at the small of her back as they walked along a busy sidewalk. At a dinner party, Kraig held my hand under the table as we ate … an intimate gesture in a crowded room while reassuring me with his smile and dreamy blue eyes. ((sigh)) Oh, um, uh, what was I saying? Oh, yeah.
I think it’s one of the reasons romance novels are extremely popular. Who doesn’t want to feel that newness and excitement of meeting “the one”? It gives us hope that the unlimited possibilities are out there just waiting to happen to us.
In The Chemical Attraction Series, I wanted Joe and Madeline to feel an immediate attraction, then work well together from the start … Them against the World. Joe and Madeline learn throughout the series that their scars make them who they are and what they love about each other. The healing power of Love is incredibly profound.
Matt and Eva Connor, another couple in the series, have been married for ten years and are still crazy about each other. I’ve shared a little of their backstory. Later in the series, I’ll show their unique history of love, sacrifice, and devotion from their beginning.
I truly believe there is nothing ordinary about any relationship. Do you remember that single moment in time when you “knew” you found your “one”? Care to share? Or are you saving it for your own romance novel?
