You’ve landed at the website of Nicolette Reed. I’m a fantasy romance writer. What does that mean you ask?
Fantasy means the setting of the story is, at least partially, in a world of my own design. I tend to write stories which take place in a combination of our reality and another. It also means the characters aren’t only humans – they are elves, fae, dwarves, selkie, demons, and other twisted bits and pieces of mythology and monster making. What is the difference between fantasy and paranormal? Paranormal stories usually involve vampires, werewolves, and other shifters.
What does romance mean exactly? In my stories the relationship between the two main characters is a strong driving force. This means it is considered a “romance.” Take out the relationship element and the story wouldn’t be the same. Sometimes the hero and heroine rush into battle and other times they dive into bed or the closest and most convenient outcropping of trees. When you’re in the forest you need to be creative.
Do I get all mushy and flowery? Depends on your level of comfort with “mush.” I readily admit my stories are not for the young adult crowd. The heat level on some scenes is pretty darn spicy and the Mane novellas push into what some would consider erotic. That said, the main thrust is always on the adventure. Yes, I went there. Women with moxie and men with muscle.
