Today, Tasha kept it simple. She just wanted us to hop over to a friends blog and, well, blog. Today, my hopping mate is Debra Jayne East and she wants to talk about something near and dear to us all…
Loving the Bad Boys!
People say that women will always love bad guys and I guess they are right to some extent. Everybody loves a hero but what kind of man grates on your nerves and makes you want to go the other way? I’ve met a few! In my novel, Radiance:Love after Death, I created two of them and I would like to introduce you. Their characters are based on people I have met in my life from the best to the worst. I first get a mental image of what they look like to develop their characters. The rest is easy.
The first is Mr.Kent and he’s the man that women love to hate. He’s bald, wears glasses and pretty obnoxious to say the least. He’s ready to create havoc in Marena Jacobs life and she tries to avoid him every chance she gets. The fool, she hadn’t even told him she was divorced or interested but that wasn’t stopping him. He was dropping by her house at all hours of the night and at other times when she least expected it. She had to get away because he was driving her nuts. He also had something else up her sleeve that she never dreamed of.
Trying to get away from him. She leaves home to go to her best friend Selina’s birthday. Maybe she just needed to get away from him and go out and unwind. Things are going great until someone taps her on the shoulder. If only she hadn’t turned around! You guessed it… Mr.Kent! Haven’t we all had guys we didn’t like that absolutely annoyed the heck out of us! They think you should be falling all over them but that is so not the situation.
My next bad boy is Samuel and he was good looking and so confident he made women uncomfortable. Charismatic to a fault, he was in Lily Dale on a mission… to seduce the one woman who despised and reviled him. Marena thought he was an ordinary man but she was wrong. Tonight at a reading, Marena would find out he wasn’t even a man at all, but something evil and sinister.
Don’t worry. Too many bad guys are no fun. Meet David Martin, he’s everything they’re not. Tall, mysterious and blind, he comes into Marena’s life from her past that she has forgotten about since her accident. All she knows is when he touches her she forgets everything and everyone that ever tried to hurt her period. To bad he took a vow of celibacy. She didn’t know it, but he came to save her from the other two. Then, he had to save her from himself.
Have you ever met someone you just loved to hate? I’m sure we’ve all got stories to tell! In the meantime, I hope you will check out my novel, Radiance:Love after Death and read about mine!
