Point of View is extremely important in any literary work. I know there is a MAJOR discussion on several lists about head-hopping. It drives some people up the wall. And I agree to a point. I don't want to know what my characters are thinking in reaction to every line. *shuddering* I wouldn't make it past the first page of that.
BUT...with that in mind...I must say I LIKE to know what the hero and heroine are thinking. I write from the heroine's POV. This is all well and good. But I have no problem with adding the hero's reaction at the end of the scene. Don't we all wonder what people are thinking? I believe that a sprinkling of changing POV's enriches the story. I love to read a book that gives me some indication of how the hero feels throughout the journey. I'm insatiably curious. :)~~
Everything in moderation. Including POV. Utterly doable. And you'll have that interesting piece of work you've always wanted.
