An Important Tip:
We created the Passport to Romance™ series to for a two-fold reason:
to give readers a taste of overseas and to stir the creative juices
of authors. We encourage authors to research the chosen location so
that the cultural flavor of the location can be infused into the
story. Also, we want to encourage authors to think outside the box
when considering ways to incorporate the object prompts. If the
location is the Arctic Circle and one of the objects is “Hibiscus in
Winter,” don’t be discouraged! Rather, consider alternatives to the
conventional bush blooming in the garden. Hibiscus in Winter might
be the name of the heroine’s favourite musical band or book or poem.
A hibiscus could arrive in winter when a plane carrying hibiscus
bushes crashes or dumps its cargo for some reason, or because the
hero knows a the hibiscus is the heroine’s favourite flower and so
carries one with him as he arrives from Hawaii.
