My latest series from Harlequin Desire features a rivalry/feud, which is a nice basis for a series of books. The set-up lends itself to lots of natural conflict but also a lot of fun situations for writing. I was inspired to write the series after one of our many trips to Stratford-Upon-Avon.
What made the stories so much fun was the fact that we are human and nothing makes me want to do something more than being told I can’t. So if I were a Chandler girl and I was told by my grandfather that all the Montrose boys were off limits, I’d be the type of person who’d spend hours pursuing them.
I have always been contrary in that way and I have to be honest and admit it’s gotten worse over the years. As soon as I hear you can’t do that or that’s impossible something inside of me perks up and accepts the challenge.
The thing is and this is what I sort of used for Cari in HIS INSTANT HEIR is that I’m not a rebel. I’m a good girl and I like following the rules. So every once in a while I bite off more than I can chew by dealing with these two differing impulses inside of myself.
What about you, are you the type of person who likes to follow the rules? Or as soon as you hear someone say it can’t be done, do you go ahead and do it just because. 🙂
I have a couple of copies of His Instant Heir to give-away today on e-book just leave a comment to be
