In fact, my hero, Darren Zelinsky has walk ons in the first two Maple Springs books - Falling for the Mom to Be that releases the end of this summer, and then again in A Soldier's Valentine which comes out in February. Darren's a big, quiet spoken kind of outdoorsy guy and a conservation officer for the state of Michigan's Department of Natural Resources. (Another fascinating occupation and I think they're all rock stars!) Anyway, Darren has had his heart badly broken, and I feel a bit protective of him, but of course I have to make him face crushing heartbreak once again, right? LOL.
Have any of you started a project one way and then didn't like how it looked or came together, so you redid it? Well that's what happening here - I started this book from the heroine's point of view like I do most of my Love Inspireds and it simply wouldn't work. This is truly Darren's story, and as much as I want to coddle the guy - I really need to put him through the emotional ringer. Sigh. Easier said then done.
So, I wondered who's perspective do you look forward to reading more in a romance? The heroine, who we as women can hopefully identify with or the hero, who we hope to also fall in love with along the way?
Thanks for your insight!
