Thanks for the invite!
Passionate, emotional, exhilarating, and intense.
I tend to start with the characters, but so deep into the series, the overarching story has a powerful presence of its own, so it’s a mix of both.
It is such a wide canvas – so long as I stay true to the rules of my world(s), I can go wherever my imagination takes me.
Tangle of Need features a number of scenes set in Venice – as I imagine it might appear toward the end of this century. However, my reimagined Venice has a basis in fact. I did lots of research on its foundations, the rising water levels etc.
I can never choose. Each character is unique, with unique challenges.
I think I will always have some element of romance in my books, so I have no desire to stray. 😉
Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with her past—to face a devastating new challenge: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to another. For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermines everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion is a losing battle.
Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.
