A KISS FOR LADY MARY is the
full novel in my Marriage Game series. By this time, Iâ€™ve written all sorts of heroes:
Sweet, difficult, rakes, ones that have it all together, and ones that donâ€™t. They all had
one thing in common. None of them balked at seducing the woman they loved into marriage,
or, in one case, into a real marriage. Then along came Kit Featherton. An Alpha hero who
seems to have it all together. Strong, handsome, the perfect gentleman, who refuses to
seduce his way out of a completely scandalous situation. In fact, he almost made a perfect
mess out of courting his lady.
I never make play lists, but two songs kept playing in my head, and, it seemed, on the
radio when I was in the car.
The first was Hello, Good-by, by The Beatles.
â€śYou say yes, I say no, You say stop and I say go go go, oh no, You say goodbye and I say
hello, Hello hello, I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello, Hello hello, I don't
know why you say goodbye, I say hello."
The second was Hot Nâ€™ Cold by Katie Perry.
â€ś'Cause you're hot then you're cold. You're yes then you're no. You're in then you're out.
You're up then you're down. You're wrong when it's right. It's black and it's white.
It was then I realized that the push me-pull me sort of thing occurs all the time in
relationships, and has been happening for hundreds of years. It just makes getting my hero
and heroine to a Happily Ever After a little more challenging.
How do you like your heroes?
