I'm working on Book 3, getting deep into character and motivation, and generally having fun exploring the relationship between these two volatile people. And when I ran across this picture, the light bulb went off — this is my hero. Cristiano is strong, sexy, and tortured by the past. And he's absolutely determined to get what he wants from the heroine — and to leave her with nothing when he's done.

Oh be still my heart! Wounded heroes are so sexy to write.

Yeah, I love this job. πŸ™‚

In other news, the website is inching closer to reveal day! I'm so excited about it, and can't wait to share it with you all! There will be a new website, blog, and newsletter. And when it goes live, I'll give away some goodies. πŸ™‚

One last thing — my book is up for pre-order on Amazon, but now it has a cover — and that makes me delighted to share the link with you!
