I'm currently doing a story for Ravenous' Green Love line. It needs to have an environmental issue at the heart of the story, as well as a romance. And sex.
A lot of ideas work, but I'm doing geothermal. Why? Because it's fascinating. Here's a wikipedia page on it to give you an idea. Alternate energy is a hot (no pun intended) topic, but Iceland has used geothermal for years. The researching is great, but I also really love the story between Aidan and Elizabeth. I hope you will, too.
