Cabin & Road Romances
Cabin Romances and Road Romances are “kissing cousins” of sorts. Road Romances devote large sections to journeys, either by land or by sea. They are filled with adventure, danger, and excitement. Often the hero and heroine travel alone, allowing them to know one another intimately and in unique ways. Some romance are both Road Romances and Cabin Romances – for instance, a romance featuring a sea voyage where the hero and heroine are then marooned on a boat or a deserted island.
Cabin Romances devote large sections to isolation of the hero and heroine. Sometimes they are isolated as a result of a journey. In other instances, the hero/heroine lives alone in the wild and rescues the other from danger, the elements, or injury, forcing them be together or hide out together. They have to come to grips with one another and their attraction in a (relatively) small place. As an added benefit, the Cabin Romance may be the ultimate romance for those readers who don’t like separations between the hero and heroine.
