I love writing romantic suspense, and I'm ecstatic about being able to communicate my love for all things country through my novels.
I write about country folks from small towns, where the pace of life is slower; porch swings; winding dirt roads; mountain vistas; swimming holes; spreading oak trees festooned with Spanish moss; farms; horses, dogs, cats, cows, and wildlife.
I also get to create gorgeous, strong-willed country girls and hunky, dreamy country men. And I say men because they are definitely not boys!
So far, these are the hunks I've created in my published and yet to be published novels:
REDNECK P.I. - Harland O'Connor – Thirty years old, six three or four, ripped, tight buns, broad shoulders, tanned, brown messed-up hair with sun-bleached highlights, deep brown eyes with long lashes, square jaw, and the hint of a smirk around his mouth. Raised on a farm in Nebraska.
(Pictured on the right below with his twin brother on the left)
KICK ASSITUDE – Tanner Ferrano – Twenty five years old, curly brown hair, blue-gray eyes, dark lashes, even white teeth, five o'clock shadow, deep voice. Works on a cattle farm in Alabama.
WAY OUT OF LINE – Hal St. Clair – Twenty three years old, tall, teasing gray-green eyes, tanned, broad shoulders and firm chest muscles, unruly blonde hair. Small town Texan.
CAPRICORN CRAVINGS – Powell Stewart – Thirty five years old, tall, big muscles, wavy brown hair, deep blue eyes with long black lashes, tanned, laughter lines, straight nose, strong jaw, five o'clock shadow, dimples, raspy voice. FBI agent. Mountain climber.
(FIRST in the Astronomy Series - to be published later this year by Soul Mate Publishing).
THE AQUARIUS ARCANUM – Andre Rossouw – Twenty six years old, stocky build, blonde curly hair, green eyes with dark lashes, square jaw, South African accent. Farmer/engineer.
(Second in the Astronomy Series – still a work in progress.)
I would LOVE to get some feedback from ladies who love reading romance and romantic suspense to help me create my next hunky country man. I'll give away an e-copy of Redneck P.I. to any woman who gives me new ideas I can use. Write them in the comments section of this blog.
I am excited to see what you come up with!
And any guys reading this, your turn is coming, because in my next blog post, I'll be asking for guys' input to help make my sassy country women more exciting.
