I'm gonna tell you a secret...
You ready for it?
Here it is...
I write romance. Okay, okay, you knew that. I write romance and in that romance are erotic scenes. Explicit, no closed doors erotic scenes.
So, given that, it's easy to assume that I write romance because I enjoy the relationship building, the sexual encounters, the hot and heavy, the deep and meaningful aspects that make romance romance. And I do.
But here's what you didn't know...when I was writing The Order of the Wolf series, it wasn't because I wanted to share stories about a guy and girl falling in love, doing it repeatedly and then living happily ever after.
Okay, it wasn't only because of that.
When I was writing The Order books it was because I wanted to bring to life these strong female warriors, the Huntresses, who were not only pivotal to the fight but, in the process of growing, would learn how valuable and powerful they were to all aspects of life, including their relationships.
I created these female warriors who are struggling to understand themselves and their powers. Who are learning about their roles and their places in a new world order. They aren't perfect and they make mistakes.
BUT they are the only ones who can vanquish the evil and truly save the day.
Their men, the Hunters or their wolves, play a valuable role too. It is in them that the Huntresses can find support, encouragement and partnership, and maybe that's something they're working on or trying to get right, but the essence of it is in every story that I've written in this series.
I am inspired by strong female characters. I love movies that showcase a kick ass female who can not only handle a weapon but can handle her individuality and strength, even if it takes time to get there.
The finale of The Order of the Wolf, Beast Rising, is set to release in January 2017 and in that book I hope to share with you a coming of age for the Huntresses. It is time for them to grasp what is theirs and rule the world that I've created for them.
So yeah, I write romances with love, arguments, hot, heavy, drooling, panty ripping make-ups but I also write about strong, kick ass women who not only have each other's backs but will save the day and the world whether you like it or not.
Thanks for being on this journey with me. I can't wait to share the finale with you.
