My MS is a YA contemporary fantasy, so the main plot isn't the love story, but it's a big part of it. But the love interest doesn't really flow in the query; it would just be introducing a new character who's only purpose in the query would be to be the love interest. So my question is, do I keep him out or trying to finagle him into the query? I'm worried it will seem too scattered because I'm adding another sub-plot. Is it okay to assume that the MS would have a love interest in it? In the end paragraph, I do reference the romantic relationship being like another book as a reference. So I don't know if that's out of the blue either...

So I've been going back and forth with my query letter. I'm not procrastinating on my MS or anything... I've stream-lined the query so that it only focuses on one-major plot, introduces the main character and a little bit of the fantasy world. There's not too many facts thrown in there at once going off in a million directions which is what I was going for. The only thing is, in order to do that, I got rid of any mention of the love interest.
