Welcome to the Romance blog hop!
The question is are prologues useful or a big no no? I’ve heard yes, no, maybe. I take that to mean rip up the rules and make your own.
Not all of my romances to date have had what could be deemed a prologue. But when I have one they give you a deep glimpse of the main character from the get go. I hope that it connects the reader to my story and gets them invested fast.
That can be a lot harder to do in my style of stories as they aren’t action packed but about the couple and how their relationship forms. What obstacles do they face in being able to have a happy ever after and so on.
Happy reading everyone!
