What a beautiful table setting for a romantic Valentine's dinner! This is just what would make any heroine's heart melt before the evening has even started - and who knows what else the hero has in store.
As a writer, in romantic novels and short stories you can make all your dreams come true. From roses on the bed sheet to a picnic in the snow by flickering candle light. Everything is possible, and memories of your own life might come in, too.
Maybe you don't want to write something that romantic. There is always the other side of the medal. The only woman in the village, who didn't receive a Valentine's card. The misery of the hero, who finds that the only affordable restaurant is already fully booked. The jealousy of the woman, who realises that her dream man has asked someone else to go out with him.
