Another romantic plot

This one of course is always suited to the historical novel, but it can be used with a contemporary (carefully) and this is the advertised and purchased bride. The hero (Or it could be the heroine in certain cases) advertises for a mate, someone to attend an event, pretend to be the intended, or marry, for a special reason, usually involving money or a prize of some kind.

As I said this is a good one for the historical novel, the frontier bride, or it could be used in a contemporary as a purchased bride as part of a business deal. You can have lots of fun with this one. It has lost favor in recent years, but as with most plots, it will come back.

Tomorrow we’ll deal with another plot.  In the meantime, don’t forget to register for the Kindle Paperwhite as part of our Valentine’s Blog Hop. And to get a chance to win a digital copy of my short story, comment on this blog.



About allisonknight2014

I write historical, gothic and contemporary romance. After all, after 53 years of marriage to a great guy, I do know a bit about romance. I'm a retired teacher and no, I didn't teach English, have children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I love to cook and hate to clean. Somehow, the writing satisfies both. Cooking up romance keeps me from cleaning!
