I know I posted about Loving Nailed…and I thought I’d dig a little deeper and give y’all a bit more behind the scenes. I don’t even remember exactly WHERE I got the idea from, but I remember playing with a lot of scenarios for my heroine Julie Burt–everything from child of deceased movie stars to woman on the run…which is what I eventually ended up with. In order for her to be on the run though, I had to have a good reason. Enter a pharmaceutical company that had a secret they wanted buried. The one element I KNEW I had to include was a cat named Clyde in honor of our old friend who used to come visit (RIP CLYDE). In the book, Clyde is completely PSYCHO except for when Wynn (my lovely hero) is around.
Clyde Loves Wynn.
And honestly, what’s not to love about a 6’5 enforcer? Really, Wynn’s quiet adept at getting information out of people. Sadly for Wynn he’s the bane of his father’s existence.
Why you ask?
Because he didn’t go into the family business. You see, Wynn Collier comes from an illustrious line of … hired guns. Unfortunately, Wynn doesn’t have the stomach to kill people–thus he’s the White Sheep of the Collier clan (and his mom’s favorite son but don’t tell John or Will).
He’s the third of three boys and has a theory on why he can’t kill.
By the time I was conceived, poor old dad didn’t have enough testosterone in his swimmers. So I got a lower dose than my brothers.
Sounds good to me!
Julie Burt, on the other hand, has no problem taking a baseball bat to Poor Wynn’s knee. She had this to say on the subject:
I knew just how to bust Wynn for hunting me down, breaking into my apartment and befriending that traitor Clyde. It’s a shame he’s so good in bed.
