Wicked Nights Giveaway Hop

Falling for someone Wicked

In erotic romance novels (which I write) there are all sorts of wicked. Wicked in both it's cheeky positive form and in the evil-doer form. For example, naughty-sex-scene-wicked or wickedly-good-looking heroes are the positive kind, but then there's often the wicked-bad-guy/girl. The character who threatens to ruin or destroy the love of our main characters. I must admit I like writing a good villain, but I never expected that I'd fall for one. When I wrote Finding Angel, the first book in my Wylde Shore Series, I did something I thought I'd never do. I redeemed my villain toward the end of the book. 

Why would you do that? And how could you redeem someone that was so wicked?

Good questions, thanks for asking. I did it because, after talking to him while writing the story, I ended up with a little crush on him. I like to get in the head of all my characters and that includes the bad guy. Adrian Hastings somehow won me over and I wanted readers to have the chance to see him and get to know him like I had, so...a mini redemption occurred. I'm not saying he suddenly became to most wonderful man in the world, or evaded punishment, but I hope that if you read (or have read) the book you won't hold being the wicked, bad guy, against him. I'm going to finish with a quote from Adrian, it was the first inkling I had from Adrian that he might be more than meets the eye.

  5. Hard to pick just one. I'd pick the New Species series by Laurann Dohner or the Kalquor series by Tracy St. John.

  6. Seduced by Darkness by Delilah Devlin

  7. Thanks for entering everyone, I know picking just one book or series is hard, for me I think it the answer often tends to be the book I'm currently reading and loving.

  8. My Secret Garden, I think because I was very, very young when I snuck it from my mothers room. I had no business reading it at 12 but I remember feeling so naughty I confessed to her I took it.


  9. Lora Leigh's Men of August series.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
