Once I had my hero for Remember Me
a penitent fallen angel named, Dacious (pronounced Dah-see-us) I wanted a woman he could fall in love with that was connected with him on a spiritual level. I can’t give you her particulars without spilling spoilers, but as a human, she is no where near perfect. Don’t get me wrong, her heart is in the right place, but she’s easily distracted from her focus, in particular at the beginning, which gets her into a world of trouble. In addition, she has no confidence in her psychic abilities, which causes her to follow her logical side and not her heart—or her second sight for that matter.
The bad guys in RM: Lucifer would be the logical enemy of Dacious. But complications arise when, in the midst of his self-imposed missionary work, a possessive vampire (what vampire isn’t possessive? LOL) queen wanted him in her bed with an aggressive desperation. When she and Lucifer join forces, it doesn’t look good for our hero & heroine. What might not be obvious to every reader is that up until the final chapter, Lucifer is still trying to skew Dacious from his path.
I was coming to the end of my forth manuscript when the characters from RM began demanding an audience. 🙂 Once I sat down to tell their story, it took about four months to write the first draft, somewhere around 80K. RM wasn’t one of those stories we wring painfully from our subconscious, it flowed to me as if it were from a higher source. During the writing, I learned things about herbs, healing stones and Karma that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
