Hi, so my my current story Winter Blossoms has a big focus on a romantic relationship. This is a big deal for me, as I don't often write romance. I don't really know how to make my to MC fall in love, especially with the circumstances of their relationship. I am posting this in the hope some of you might have a few ideas for me. Winter Blossoms takes place to a sort of medieval called Casolin. At the time the story takes place, Casolin is torn by civil war. The King executed the Lord of StoneWall, (a importance family in the north) for treason. Said treason was not letting the King marry the Lord's eldest daughter Cressida, stupid right? After that, Cressida was held in the capital as a prisoner. In the rest of Casolin things got bad, Cressida's elder brother started a rebellion to get her back, and got killed. Her vanished, and her other brother was killed by the Kings Men, when her home fell. Cressida was left on her own, the King lost interest in her after her father's death, but she was still in the capital. She was abused by both the King and his guards, with the exception of Rowen of RosePool. It was Rowen's younger sister the King was now interested in. It was Rowen's grandmother who finely came up with a way to get Cressida out of the capital, and under her power. She desires that Cressida will marry her eldest grandson, and the heir of RosePool. This arrangement is made without Cressida's permission, but it goes through. Cressida is forest married to marry Joren of RosePool. (A sort of short summary of what I have so far.) Things to Consider: one of the biggest problems is that of the age difference between Cressida and Joren. Cressida is barely 13 at the time Winter Blossoms starts, well Joren is 24. Joran don't want to marry Cressida, knowing that she is nowhere near ready, and that it is unlikely they will be a good match. But he has had about as much say in the matter as Cressida has, that is to say nothing. Joren also faces the challenge of his disability, one of his legs was crushed when his horse fell on him, years before the story. Leaving Joren unable to walk without help, and chronic pain, and health problems. All of this feeds into the problems of this romances. On a final note, I have published the first chapter here on site, if you want to see it.
