From the very first moment I put Mysterious Cute Guy on the page, I fell in love. There’s just something about a big, bad, sexy guy that you know nothing about that fires the imagination. But I have to be honest. When he made a cameo in Head Over Heels, (literally a walk-on role only; in fact I believe he only gets a mention or two) I knew nothing about him. Nothing. I never intended to either. He was just one of life’s little (okay big, bad, and sexy) mysteries.
Then my editor called me. Said the first three Lucky Harbor books had done so well that they’d like three more please. And maybe one of the heroes could be Mysterious Cute Guy.
It was fun coming up with a story to go with this enigmatic figure, not to mention a name– Ty Garrison. More fun still to give this ex-Navy SEAL a rough, tortured, bad-boy past and a sweet, giving, good-girl heroine (Mallory Quinn, ER nurse). Oh the fun I had with these two: a bad boy trying to go good, and a good girl looking for a walk on the wild side. Hope you have as much fun reading their story, Lucky In Love.
