Please post the excerpt where your hero realizes he’s fallen in love, or if you’re not a writer, or don’t have an excerpt ready, post one from somewhere else.
Here is mine from Lord Beaumont’s Bride.
Serena pulled a face. “I choose the rectory. I am not looking forward to our discussion with Mr. Foster.”
“Nor I,” Robert agreed. “Race?”
She laughed. “You know I always win.”
“Give me a five minute head start?” he asked hopefully.
“Not a chance, my lord.” Serena spurred Shamir and was quickly across the field.
“You’re a miserable witch, and I love you,” he shouted after her.
She was already too far away to hear him, but his heart buoyed. He’d said it and he’d meant it. He loved her. His shoulders felt lighter, lighter than he could remember.
