On my Florida Romance Writers Cruise... I found one way to answer the question is to make a list of 20....
Writing I want:
1. Characters who aren't bound by fear
2. A reader to laugh out loud
3. A beginning, middle and an end
4. The premise of the story to be possible
Like Kelli Zel's Master Sergeant
Lola Moore is tired of the same tired type of guy she’s been dating, and hasn’t had a good date in a long time. A chance meeting with a US Army Master Sergeant and a winter storm are about to change all that! When Lola encounters the sexy Sergeant in the grocery store their attraction is instantaneous and they flirt as they pass each other through out the store. But it isn’t until Lola accidently runs into him with her cart that she decides to do anything about it. Fearing he might really be hurt and that if she lets him walk away she’ll never see him again, Lola takes him home. One thing is for certain, it won’t be cold at Lola’s house during the storm!
If your fantasy is meeting a stranger and having incredible sex then come along for the ride with Lola as she pursues her fantasy. I would never have the guts to risk taking a stranger home but it sure is fun to read about Lola’s adventure. I liked Lola’s confidence and willingness to go for what she really wants even if it might lead to heartache later. And the Sergeant in this story meets every fantasy of a hot military man rolled into a fun and beautiful package that I wish I could have unwrapped myself. Ms. Zel has a wicked sense of humor and fun that takes this sizzling, sexy encounter to another level by keeping the characters entertaining and the reader grinning. I will be on the lookout for other stories by Ms. Zel as her style of story is easy to read and fun for all my senses! If you want a fun, titillating, stranger encounter fantasy, you can’t go wrong with Master Sergeant!
