I'm working on two novels, though Adora's story, Last to Know, has surged ahead in terms of commanding my attention. Yeah, it's a lame title. I'm still hoping I can think of a better one. But the novel itself has spawned some interesting dynamics.
It's a great wedding, because NOTHING goes as it's supposed to. Gaspar was too much fun to write for me to long resist having him as a POV character again. And I gave septugenarian Duqessa Hersilia a nice, meaty role. It's all good fun. So far, Adora's baby is born, the wedding done, half of Julissa's family is dead or missing (read Dangerous Beauty for that story) and Adora and Vallmer are finding out that love is not something that goes according to design.
Naturally, this being a gay romance, there's all kinds of hot sex and male bonding and, this being me, plenty of action as well. Rann is damaged and distrustful; Kyreion is isolated, spoiled and suspicious. The bridge they build between their experiences will not only lead to love, it will change their world.
I don't know what it is about spring, it may be the flowers, or the birds, but something about this time of year puts romance front and center.
