Yes, there will be trouble

Warning- My heroes and my heroines are bound to fuck up somewhere along the way.  I like it that way.  In one of my favorite TV shows, Nurse Jackie, Edie Falco plays a drug addicted nurse.  She’s a great nurse with a good heart, but she lies and she cheats, all with a straight face.  Somehow, the writers keep you on her side. It’s brilliant!

In my stories and novels I write characters that have failings and will need to find a way to overcome their shortcomings.  It might be pride, or fear, self-doubt or selfishness.  No, things will not be all peachy-keen in my novels.  My Doms are not infallible stallions who are beyond question. My female leads don’t always cooperate.  I want my characters to be real; with inner conflicts and susceptible to mistakes.   For me the resolution of the conflict is so rewarding when you have walked on the coals with the characters, hand in hand.


So this leads me to a question.  Do you want your hero to be perfect?  Can you still like him if he’s not?  In life and in romance novels I truly feel that the power of love lays in the ability to love someone even when they falter and the ability to be their support as they get back on track.  The challenge is to make the reader feel that way too.

Even a Master needs a savior...or two.

Successful engineering executive, Jack Rothman thought he was finally free to be the Dom he was meant to become. His submissives, Rory Campbell and Spencer Hartley are soon to be married, and his place as their Dominant is unshakeable. Then Jack loses the one thing a Dom requires…control over his life.

Rory can’t wait to get married, but she can’t marry both of her men—not in the eyes of the law or her overbearing, critical parents. She must find the courage to tell her parents the truth about her poly relationship, despite the sudden absence of her Dominant’s strength. If she wants the happily-ever-after wedding she’s always dreamed of, she’ll have to learn to fight for it on her own.

Spencer knows that lies are a poison that destroys from within.  Now that he’s come to terms with his bisexuality he’s ready to settle down with the woman he loves and the man he can’t live without. Only the future that seemed so bright is in danger of being swept out of his hands. He’s watching his fiancĂ©e fall apart, his Dom fade away and there’s nothing he can do about it…or is there?
