The world of Christian Grey has opened and created an entire universe of billionaire hunks in the romance department (but we all know millionaire or financially stable hunks will also do the trick). If you are thinking about, or already started writing your own next billionaire must read then let’s find out how to make that happen!
The appeal is already there. A character who is highly successful, but lacks the personal life of a ‘nice guy’. Now in most cases the billionaire is male, but there’s no saying you can’t switch it up. That is a whole other door waiting to be opened!
But back to the what’s what.
There is more often than not the Cinderella story in this array of romance. The hero has financial security, and tends to offer the heroine security of some sort. That security often ranges somewhere from a business arrangement of getting down and dirty, some form of employment, or the heroine has some family member they have to save.
Now here comes the nitty gritty. We don’t want a hero that we hate from the start with too much macho. Tension between the hero and heroine is always a plus, but try and stray away from too much of one trait. While the book can be focused on the financials of the hero, money shouldn’t be the main factor for the romance. We need more! The love, passion, secrets and everything that comes with it. Handing stacks of cash up front is an easy game to play. Now throw in an exciting cover and you’re good to go!
