Is HEA required?

I’m curious: Would you read romance that might not have a happily ever after for our hero and heroine (i.e. they split up, don’t get together, or maybe even one of them dies)?

  1. I have to have some sort of HEA or HFN but if it’s inevitable that a character I love has to die or as you said don’t end up together then so be it. I’ll still read your book, but I am a hopeless romantic no matter what ups and major downs a couple have to go through. Hope this was helpful 😉😃

    1. It really was 😊. I’m also a hopeless romantic, so I’m not sure I could do it. I get so close to the characters that it would feel like losing a best friend.


  2. It’s so very hard to read a book when there is not a “HEA.” Reading is an escape for me and to know that somewhere, someone isn’t happy, it puts a damper on the book for me. I’m a hopeless romantic.

  3. A HEA is required for me, I’m also a hopeless romantic. I would have a hard time reading a book knowing there’s not going to be a HEA. I’m an avid reader and I like to get away from the real world for just a little while. I actually recently read a book where the heroine died due to domestic violence from an ex and it was heart breaking. Had I known that was how the book was going to end I would have never read it. Don’t get me wrong, it was a really good read but too sad for me. I’ve read all of your books on Amazon and I’ve enjoyed every one of them.

    1. I remember I tried to write something like that back in the day, but then I was even in the shower just standing there saying, “I can’t do it. I just can’t do it.”
