Writing Rule #2 – Truth or Myth?

Writing Rule #2:  POV – true or false?

One Dance with a Stranger by Mary M. Forbes

All advice I’ve ever heard when writing is keeping your Point of View in one person’s thoughts.  I mostly follow this rule but was amazed when my favorite romance author, Judith McNaught didn’t follow this and created one of the most poignant, sexy scenes between a couple in her story –  Something Wonderful.  It’s her heroine’s first kiss and she is not even slightly interested. Her hero is well aware of his charm and where kisses can lead.  The thoughts jump back and forth between the hero and the heroine.  McNaught broke the POV rule to create a unique, memorable kiss.
