Thanks for having me back on the EverAfter Romance blog! If we’ve never met, I write dark paranormal romance, and my devoted readers will tell you, I like my characters to earn their Happily Ever After.
What does that mean? One of my favorite parts of a romance is that big black moment. We’ve been building up to it the whole book. Will they or won’t they? Whatever they fear most, we’re going to face it. I yearn to see them grow into the people I know they can be. This is usually the moment in a book that can bring tears to your eyes.
My poor husband has found me sobbing in the kitchen more than once as I face having to write that scene. By the time I get there, I love my characters, and I don’t want to hurt them, but for me, it’s that huge moment when love really does cause a transformation. That’s when the happily ever after is only as delicious as that dark time is painful.
In Wolf Moon, my heroine, Raven, is trapped in Sedona, Arizona in a Wolf Pack, bitten against her will and tormented by a sadistic Alpha, and Luke our hero is the youngest and only man left in his Pack without a mate. I really enjoyed the journey these two took and if you’ve read the Moon Series from the beginning, you’ll really appreciate how far Luke has come. He’s grown into an amazing man. I don’t want to give away too much, but I hope you’ll give the Wolf Pack a try…
So what is it about romance novels that keep you coming back for more?
