A to Z Challenge: Kissing

Nothing says Romance like a kiss. I can't think of a single Romance novel I've read that didn't have kissing in it. All of my novels have kissing in them even though most of them are considered "sweet" fantasy. I have yet to write a spicy scene of Brown Chicken Brown Cow, but every one of my Romance must have a kiss.

A romance novel without a kiss must be pretty tame indeed.

So today on Romance Spinners, we're celebrating the Kiss.

Top Ten Synonyms for Kissing

  1. Smooch

  3. Buss

  5. Plant one on
  6. Peck
  7. Swap spit
  8. French
  9. Lock lips
  10. Pash
