Just a quick question. My story is not a horror per se, but really a thriller post-apocalypse that has a lot of horror "elements". I hear many people online say romance ruins a good thriller/horror story, because it takes away from the atmosphere or something of that nature. Well the "romance" in my story isn't that long(really just a sex scene), but just to build up for something really terrifying. Is that okay in these two genres? My story is really gritty and I don't want too much "lovey dovey", but I do need a form of romance to build up something that's going to happen to the two characters.
