Perhaps it's the influence of The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, and Game of Thrones on television, but I've noticed an increase in the number of epic fantasy romance series over the past few years. These books include the high stakes, the magic, the swordplay, the ancient civilizations, kings, queens, wizards, sorceresses … and the Happily Ever After romance endings. (Or Happy For Now in some of the installments.)
Who better to ask about the topic than some of the authors who write these wonderful books? My two questions were: What do you find so appealing about writing epic fantasy romance? And who's on your to-be-read list in the genre?
