What ever happened to…..
I get asked this question regularly - what am I writing next for Harlequin Special Edition and will there be any more books set in the small Australian beachside town of Crystal Point? Well, I’ve just signed a new contract for three more books which will keep me busy for the next eight months or so, and yes, they will be set in my favourite little Downunder town that sits at the most southern point of The Great Barrier Reef
In my current release Date With Destiny, readers get to meet the hero’s sister and she is the heroine in what will be my fifth book for Harlequin Special Edition. After that there will be two more….and who knows what will happen then…the more characters I meet in these books the more inclined I am to want to give them their very own happy ending. And readers seem to want this too. It’s wonderful getting a reader email where they ask about a certain secondary character who has touched or resonated with them in some way. And I get this question regularly about a character called Mary-Jayne Preston…a free-spirited brunette who wears her heart on her sleeve and who somehow seems to pop up in every book and is yet to find her own happily-ever-after. But she will, I promise. Her story is planned for book seven and I am so looking forward to watching this character meet her match and fall in love.
Whenever I read a book and discover and interesting secondary character I always look forward to discovering that this character is the hero or heroine in this author’s next book. I enjoy the familiarity, the sense of ‘coming home’ to people and places I’ve met before. And I’m always happy to hear from readers if there is a character they would like to read about in another book.
Have you every wondered what happened to a certain character in a book you loved? Did they get their happy ending or perhaps their comeuppance?
I have a copy of Date With Destiny to give away to one commenter.
Financier Grace Preston did fourteen-hour days in New York City. She didn't do small towns in Australia. Not since she'd fled almost twenty years ago. But when a personal trauma sent her home-with a secret she couldn't reveal-the last person she needed was her first love.
Local cop Cameron Jakowski had loved Grace for most of his life. But he wanted marriage and family and she didn't. He was small town, while she was big city-and lived half a world away. But for now she was right here-a walking, talking temptation. One he managed to avoid...until he made one mistake. He kissed her. And reawakened the passion that could change their lives...forever.
