Rhea Watson's Romances

Tropes and Triggers

I think it's important to have a list of tropes and triggers in all of my books. Readers should go into their romances informed. As an author, I am also a reader, and I have immediate no tropes AND triggers that would deter me from moving forward with a book.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me on social media or via email.
