When I submitted my tropetastic book about a tourney knight who happened to be an earl reconciling with his younger wife, I was given the best advice any author could ever have. I was told to write what only I could, to write what I wanted, not what I thought they wanted.
So this book is about a self assured man who falls for a woman who thinks he’s utterly gorgeous, but really does not trust him, or want to be in a relationship. More importantly, she does not need to be. Meghan could easily leave this book without Ivar if she wanted to, and it is her decision to want him, to love him, that makes her stay.
