Even as she sagged, she fought to turn her head, but the heavy palm followed, keeping the horrid cloth over her mouth and nose… Until reality slid away and darkness engulfed her. Her hero did not exist within tonnish circles, but she could no longer step outside to hunt him down. The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh. Kirs Tie. The chain lay concealed beneath the delicate lace of the fashionable fichu and collar that filled the scooped neckline of her gold silk gown. The physical journey of her kidnapping, rescue, and escape to safety parallels a personal journey of self-discovery as she is lifted out of her comfortable world and placed into another, more difficult and dangerous world, and faced with hurdle after hurdle which, together with the hero, she must overcome.
Book 1 is usually easy, because you have so much to set up and can race into the story. Book 3 - well, in this case, I knew most of what happens in the last book before I started writing the first. But Book 2 is often the hardest to pull off - in this case, I was very grateful I had two such strong and fascinating characters as hero and heroine to claim center stage…and in the background our mysterious laird and his motives are being more and more revealed.
However, in this trilogy, there was an additional challenge - both book 1 and book 2 had to involve abduction, chase, rescue, and escape - in other words, a journey. In the first book, the "journey" was pretty evenly divided between chase, rescue and escape, and the escape wasn't under serious and immediate threat.
In this second book, it needed to have a different feel - so book 2's journey is quick on abduction and chase, has more rescue, but is mostly about the escape - and that escape is under serious and constant threat.
So book 1 and book 2, although moving through similar plot sequences, "read" very differently - the experience the reader gets from each book will be different and unique. Most of the action in the trilogy occurs in Scotland, but each book thus far goes to different places - what led you to use the regions you do in the first two books?
The choice of routes for the kidnappers was largely dictated by what the laird, in the circumstances, would specify. In book 1, there was no reason not to go up the Great North Road at a pace that wouldn't attract attention. However, the laird wanted the kidnappers to bring Heather to Gretna Green - yes, there was a purpose behind Heather's kidnappers taking her there, and we'll learn what it was early in Book 3.
Once Breckenridge rescued her, it was obvious that they would head to Richard and Catriona in the Vale of Casphairn as that was the closest place of safety.
However, with Eliza's kidnapping, the laird would obviously specify a different route to avoid the Cynsters, and that landed Eliza in Edinburgh - a wonderfully romantic city - from where Jeremy rescues her.
He and she then face the question how best to get south to Wolverstone Castle - their closest safe place - while avoiding the kidnappers and the laird, who come after them.
The answer to that took us on a journey through the Scottish lowlands, an area I hadn't visited, either in real life or story life, previously.
It was fascinating learning about the towns, hills, rivers and valleys. But to return to your question, in the first two books in this trilogy, the story itself - primarily the laird's motivations, and then how the girls and their rescuers respond - is what determined the regions through, and the routes by which, the characters travel. Continuing the question above, where in Scotland will the third volume in the trilogy take us??
Aha - into the highlands! The majority of Book 3 is set on the laird's highland estate, his clan lands. As he terms it, glen, loch and castle - and we've already had a small glimpse of the castle in the Prologue of book 1.
Once again in this book we see a hero we've met before, in this instance when he was considerably younger, and in a book, The Lady Chosen, which was published a long time ago. Is it difficult to go back and pick up a character who you originally wrote a long time ago? Not if he's been set up in the original book correctly. As mentioned above, Jeremy was, from the first, clearly a hero in waiting, with definite potential, but the question was how to develop it. The essential elements were there.
I've done this - gone back to an earlier secondary character and developed him into a hero - a few times Dillon Caxton - A Rogue's Proposal originally, and What Price Love?
I have a much deeper sense of their history, and I think that shows in the depth of the character in their own book. I think readers respond to this sort of storytelling, with characters the readers see as they mature - I know I enjoy writing such stories. In the latter sections of this book, we revisit Wolverstone Castle, and a number of scenes take place there.
Is it difficult to go back into an imaginary building and keep the internal structure and layout of the rooms consistent with what you've described before? I have a very accurate visual memory against that, I'm hopeless with anything people tell me.
If I've read it, or seen it, I'll remember, and I have a very good memory for buildings and places, and roads, for instance. So for me to return in my mind to a place I've been before isn't hard. It almost as if I call up a video of the place in my mind, and I can walk through it, see the same tapestries on the walls, the same fireplace, the same stairs with their same carpet. I don't forget the spaces, or how they interconnect - how you get to the library from Minerva's sitting room, where the door to the battlements is - and I remember the furnishings and the atmosphere of rooms as well.
Very useful in this profession! The villains of this story seem to be evolving and changing - was this deliberate plotting, or did it come about as you wrote each story? The notion of a villain who wasn't a villain - namely an honorable man forced by circumstance to act in a villainous way - was a key feature of the trilogy from its inception.
The story of the laird and what he's up to and why provides the backbone of the trilogy, and culminates in the third book, when we learn all the answers. So that's one level of villain, but in addition there's the laird's hired henchmen in each book, who are villains in the customary sense. And there, too, we have progression as we move from book1 to book 2 - from Fletcher, Cobbins, and Martha in book 1 to the distinctly more dangerous Scrope, Taylor, and Genevieve in book 2.
As for the laird, at the end of book 2 we are left with more questions than answers - which is what book 3 is all about. This is the second and middle book in the trilogy.
In terms of style, what can we look forward to in the third volume? A rollicking adventure. Book 3 is the volume I've dubbed: Elizabeth Bennett rescues Errol Flynn in the Scottish highlands. Book 3 is Angelica's story, and as a heroine she is shaping up to be quite a handful, and as for her hero, he is so over the top, so very much larger than life; put the two together and the sparks will fly - which will be immense fun for us all.
The six original Cynster cousins play cameo parts, and Lady Osbaldestone and Aunt Clara play small but crucial roles. I have a feeling Book 3 might well be the most humorous book I've ever written - there's certainly a lot of scope for repartee - but in terms of overall style and atmosphere, it will continue the trilogy theme of the high adventure, drama, and passion of the first 2 books, culminating in a romantic grand finale of epic proportions.
Book 3 is definitely a case of "live large. As there were few among the ton likely to decline an invitation to waltz at an event hosted by Honoria, Duchess of St. Ives, and her powerful husband, Devil Cynster, the huge room was packed. The light from the sparkling chandeliers sheened over elaborately coiffed curls and winked and blinked from the hearts of countless diamonds.
Gowns in a range of brilliant hues swirled as the ladies danced, creating a shifting sea of vibrant plumage contrasting with the regulation black-and-white of their partners. Laughter and conversation blanketed the scene. A riot of perfumes filled the air. In the background a small orchestra strove to deliver one of the most popular waltzes.
Eliza watched as her elder sister, Heather, circled the dance floor in the arms of her handsome husband-to-be, ex-foremost rake of the ton, Timothy Danvers, Viscount Breckenridge. Even if the ball had not been thrown expressly to celebrate their betrothal, to formally announce it to the ton and the polite world, the besotted look in Breckenridge's eyes every time his gaze rested on Heather was more than enough to tell the tale.
The ex-darling of the ton's ladies was now Heather's sworn protector and slave. And Heather was his. The joy in her face, that lit her eyes, declared that to the world. Despite her own less than happy state, much of it a direct outcome of the events leading to Heather's engagement, Eliza was sincerely, to her soul, happy for her sister. They'd both spent years-literally years-searching for their respective heroes among the ton, through the drawing rooms and ballrooms in which young ladies such as they were expected to confine themselves in hunting for suitable, eligible partis.
Yet neither Heather, Eliza, nor Angelica, their younger sister, had had any luck in locating the gentlemen fated to be their heroes. They had, logically, concluded that said heroes, the gentlemen for them, were not to be found within their proscribed orbit, so they had, also logically, decided to extend their search into those areas where the more elusive, yet still suitable and eligible, male members of the ton congregated.
That strategy had worked for their eldest female cousin Amanda, and, employed with a different twist, for her twin sister Amelia, as well. And, albeit in a most unexpected way, the same approach had worked for Heather, too.
Clearly for Cynster females, success in finding their own true hero lay in boldly stepping beyond their accustomed circles. Which was precisely what Eliza was set on doing except that, through the adventure that had befallen Heather within minutes of her taking her first step into that racier world - namely being kidnapped, rescued by Breckenridge, and then escaping in his company - a plot to target "the Cynster sisters" had been exposed.
Whether the targets were limited to Heather, Eliza, and Angelica, or included their younger cousins, Henrietta and Mary, no one knew. No one understood the motive behind the threat, not even what was eventually intended beyond being kidnapped and possibly taken to Scotland.
As for who was behind it, no one had any real clue, but the upshot was that Eliza and the other three "Cynster sisters" as yet unbetrothed had been placed under constant guard. She hadn't been able to set toe outside her parents' house without one of her brothers, or if not them, one of her cousins - every bit as bad - appearing at her elbow.
And looming. For her, taking even half a step outside the restrictive circles of the upper echelons of the ton was now impossible. If she tried, a large, male, brotherly or cousinly hand would close about her elbow and yank her unceremoniously back.
Such behavior on their part was, she had to admit, understandable, but… "For how long? If I don't find my hero this year, next year I'll be on the shelf. Which was why she was hugging the wall in the screening shadows of the huge palm; she was worn out with smiling and pretending she had any interest whatever in the very proper young gentlemen who, through the night, had vied for her attention.
As a well-dowered, well-bred, well-brought up Cynster young lady she'd never been short of would-be Romeos. Sadly, she'd never felt the slightest inclination to play Juliet to any of them. Like Angelica, Eliza was convinced she would recognize her hero, if not in the instant she laid eyes on him-Angelica's theory-then at least once she'd spent a few hours in his company.
Heather, in contrast, had always been uncertain over recognizing her hero-but then she'd known Breckenridge, not well but more than by sight, for many years, and until their adventure she hadn't realized he was the one for her.
Heather had mentioned that their cousin-by-marriage, Catriona, who, being an earthly representative of the deity known in parts of Scotland as "The Lady," tended to "know" things, had suggested that Heather needed to "see" her hero clearly, which had proved very much to be the case. Catriona had given Heather a necklace and pendant designed to assist a young lady in finding her true love-her hero; Catriona had said the necklace was supposed to be passed from Heather, to Eliza, to Angelica, then to Henrietta and Mary, before ultimately returning to Scotland, to Catriona's daughter, Lucilla.
Raising one hand, Eliza touched the fine chain interspersed with small amethyst beads that circled her neck; the rose quartz pendant depending from it was hidden in the valley between her breasts. The chain lay concealed beneath the delicate lace of the fashionable fichu and collar that filled the scooped neckline of her gold silk gown.
The chain was now hers, so where was the hero it was supposed to help her recognize? Mastered by Love IV. Cynster 1. Devil's Bride 2.
