My own personal vocabulary is splashed with the words love and hate. I'm sure I got this from my mom who is quite the drama queen. I rarely if ever really like something. It's always a case of love. And if I don't like something, well, I pretty much hate it. Being hungry is a state of starving. Need a drink of water? I'm dying of thirst. I could die of embarrassment too. There's just no half-stepping in my world.
Love and hate play a big roll in romance novels. Reading about a hero you kind of like or a villain your sort of hate will put you to sleep. A hero who rocks the heroine's world and the reader wishes would jump off the page and into her bed? Now there's a hero you love. And please, give us a villain we love to hate.
