Love conquers all. Such a cliche right? As romance writers this is our motto. We can't write, or sell, without this cliche taking form. As humans we want to know that the world isn't as harsh and cruel as it seems. We desperately want there to be something that can swallow up the cruelty of the world.
Personally, and in my career, love really does conquer all... If your willing to fight for that love. The characters I write have their flaws, including some of them not believing they are worthy of such all consuming love, but they are all willing to fight for it. Weather it's against the outside world, against each other or themselves, they end up thriving in that love.
Take for instance my first novel, Key of Time. My heroine, Imogen, had been in love with the hero, Blaise, for years. Even though he didn't feel worthy of her adoration almost loosing her taught him that he had to fight for the love he desperately wanted.
In my personal life, I've watched my parents fight against illness while proving to themselves and each other how much they love each other. My husband and I have had out tough times, but without the fight for that all consuming love we would never be where we are today.
What is something in your life that you feel is cliche yet is completely true?
