Just a few of the elements that went into my latest paranormal romance, THIS WICKED MAGIC, which hits bookstores today! I haven’t been so excited for a story to hit the stores in a long time, and it’s mainly because of the hero, Certainly Jones. You see, he’s been in my head for a very long time. Over a decade, to be sure. I haven’t always known who or what he is, but I did have that interesting name bouncing about in my skull, bugging me for some attention.
And wouldn’t you know, when the guy finally comes to fruition I make sure he’s a dark witch infested with demons, forced to live in the light (always; cue the chandeliers), and who happens to fall in love with a light witch who has a cleaning service. No, she doesn’t clean houses. The heroine, Victorie St. Charles, cleans up messes left behind by battling paranormals. Yeah, like dead werewolves. Hey, someone’s got to do it. She drives a white hearse. It’s great for hauling around cleaning equipment and, erm…body bags.
Here’s a link to my hero and heroine’s Pinterest board because I like to make one up for each book with pictures that inspire the story. I think the cover artists at Harlequin nailed it this time. (Though, I’m still not sure why the chandelier is in a tree. Hmm…)
I have a copy of THIS WICKED MAGIC for one lucky commenter, so let me know what your favorite character name is and the book it comes from.
