Point of View Changes in Writing & Publishing Posted Tuesday at 04:11 PM I just read Finding Faith by Denise Hunter, a popular CF romance writer. In one scene, we switch from the woman's POV to the man's in the middle of the scene. The woman says something and feels guilty. Then we switch and see the man thinking she must be lying. I don't know what the experts say about it, but I see this switch in the middle of scenes a lot. I think the authors do it so the reader can see the same scene from different POVs. I'm not saying it's the best thing to do, but plenty of popular modern romance authors switch POVs in the middle of scenes, going from the woman's POV to the man's. This often happens about once a scene, but usually not more than once. This is a change I've noticed recently in romance fiction. It doesn't really happen in older novels. In some ways this makes sense when you think of how we're trained by film to see things from different POVs as the scenes take place. I've actually come to expect it from romance authors and am sometimes disappointed when it doesn't.
