Hi Shey, thanks for having me here today to talk about my heroine in Picture Perfect.
She’s still beating up on herself that she didn’t notice any signs of his betrayal. Since then, she’s been steering clear of men altogether. But oh, she does miss, ahem, you know what. (I’m mindful that your pristine blog should not be sullied by crassness).
My heroines are usually ballsy, thick-skinned, but very soft underneath. When they fall in love, they fall hard. But Chelsea’s recent hurt is still raw, and she wasn’t as thick-skinned as she would have liked. She’s lost confidence in her ability to read people properly, and chastises herself for not seeing the bleeding obvious in other people.
In Picture Perfect, Chelsea has an array of gorgeous men in her life right now, but while there are sparks flying, she’s unsure of where her heart lies. However there’s one man who really catches her attention. Initially, it’s his drop-dead gorgeous looks that attract her, but through a series of coincidences, she gets to know him. He’s open and friendly—but is he available?
In All Fired Up, Cindy meets Captain Dave Johnson—her boss, and captain of Hillwood Fire Station where she shows up as the newly graduated recruit. He’s business-like, but gets down to business with her pretty swiftly.
In Picture Perfect, Chelsea is floating through no-man’s land, hoping the next phase of her life will bring her a bolster for her damaged confidence. She’s nice, perhaps too nice, until she reveals a side of her no one knows about.
Cindy (All Fired Up) – confident, ballsy, determined to succeed in a man’s world.
Well, I write erotic romance. My heroines are keen to get in the sack (or shower, or bath tub, or across the office desk…). No matter how they appear on the outside, they have a burning appetite to be satisfied, but they won’t just do it with anyone. They want a genuine attraction going on.
When love strikes, it’s not always what we expect.
Readers should be able to resonate with what the heroine feels and thinks. People aren’t perfect—neither should the heroine be. For all our inner strengths, we have corresponding weaknesses. Believable heroines, like real people, don’t always see their good and bad sides. It’s nice when a heroine identifies a weakness in herself and, often through hardship and pain, overcomes it to end up a better or more fulfilled person.
Fires aren’t all that’s sizzling at Hillwood Station…
