Welcome everyone! Today we have Karyn Good as part of the New Voices weekly feature. She's here with her debut romantic suspense, BACKLASH. Because the emotional ties are what make Romance so gratifying, I've asked her to talk about her characters emotional journey. Please make her feel welcome -- and don't forget! Karyn has a giveaway to go along with this guest spot.
You're most welcome, Karyn! And it's information like you've supplied, that gives a peek into the true heart of the story, that really inspires me to read. Backlash sounds very compelling!
Let's take a peek at an excerpt and see how these two co-exist with one another.
“I remember you.” His arms tightened.
Her heart sighed, and the scent of him cast a spell. A trace of soap, a whiff of man, and a fragrance so familiar it made her think of bush parties, bonfires, cheap wine, and the back seat of an ’86 Firebird.
She remembered every little detail.
“What’s this about, Lilypad?”
That he remembered that awful nickname he’d labeled her with when they were kids was a visceral punch to the gut.
She wrinkled her nose. “I hated that name.”
“I know. I’d have been disappointed if you hadn’t.”
“I don’t know. I thought of it one day when a bunch of us were catching frogs.”
“You’re such a sweet talker.”
He hadn’t moved an inch, yet he seemed closer. “You don’t want a sweet talker. Remember?” He ran a finger down the side of her cheek. “You want someone who’s going to let you know exactly what he plans to do to you. And believe me, there won’t be anything sweet about it.”
In the second needed to catch her breath, she changed her mantra to: Live in the moment. Forget Tessier and his bag of terrors. Forget everything. For the next hour. One more hour.
