What’s a Trope?

What’s a trope? Well, do you enjoy reading romance? If so, what is your favorite kind? Second chance at love? Later in life romance? Marriage of convenience? Arranged marriage? Single mom? Single dad? In the “biz,” these are called, “tropes”—“defined as a recurring theme or motif, as in literature or art: the trope of motherhood; the heroic trope.” You see there are all kinds of romance tropes and we all have our favorites.

My contemporary romance, ELLIE’S FOREVER FAMILY, is a second chance at love with a little matchmaker romance. The little matchmaker is four-year-old Rylee, the daughter of my single dad (yes another “trope”) hero, Pete. Here’s the scoop:
