We all love him. You know the one â€“ the hero who likes to whisper things that
make both the reader and the heroine melt. He always knows the right thing to
say to set panties aflame, and heâ€™s doesnâ€™t hesitate to go the extra mile to
take you there. The man should really walk around with a warning attached to
him, because his heroine isnâ€™t going to stand a chance once he starts talking.
Up until this point, Iâ€™ve only ogled him from afar in other authorsâ€™ books. I
was so sure I could never pull off that kind of thing without my hero
sounding like a fool. And then I met the hero of MISTAKEN BY FATE, Garrett
Reaver. Heâ€™s big and has a striking resemblance to a certain Norse god, and heâ€™s
got a whole lot to sayâ€”most of it X-rated. Really, really X-rated.
Iâ€™d be sitting there, writing, and suddenly things would start coming out of his
mouth that had me looking to open a window and get some cold air circulating.
Iâ€™ve always kind of laughed it off when people ask me how a character I created
can surprise me, but Garrett did. The man has a downright filthy
I wish I could say thereâ€™s a secret formula to pulling off a dirty talker
without sounding like youâ€™re blushing cherry red while doing itâ€”or, worse,
feeling and sounding awkwardâ€”but the truth is that it depends on the character.
If Iâ€™d tried to force some of the things that Garrett said out of another heroâ€™s
mouth, I would have failed horribly. But with him, it fit.
And, oh lordy, the book is a thousand times hotter because it does!
