For those of you who aren’t familiar with my work, I write a paranormal series about the Psy, a race that eliminated its emotions a century ago in an effort to stave off a vicious wave of insanity and murder; and the changeling shapeshifters who threaten their perfect Silence.
If you'd like more info, there are lots of excerpts available on my website, along with tantalizing snippets of behind the scenes info, and a free short story.
The latest book in the series: Caressed By Ice, releases Sep 4! I can hardly wait. Here’s what one bookseller had to say about it: “I want to marry this book, I love it so much.” I love that quote! And no I didn’t bribe her to say that. Promise. It was all Judd Lauren, my icy assassin of a hero. He drove me nuts with his stubbornness while I was writing, but he is quite unbelievably sexy (in a dangerous sort of way).
I’m guessing that since you’re reading Jacki’s blog, you love a dash of darkness in your heroes? What is it about them that’s so fascinating, do you think? Personally, I think it’s not their dangerous edges which seduce us, but the fact that we know they’ll never use those edges to hurt the heroine.
A lethal blade of a hero might drive the heroine to insanity with his possessive protectiveness, as Judd does to Brenna, but he will never ever allow harm to come to her. He’s not tamed...but for her, he’ll try to behave. (Of course, his version of “behaving” might include plenty of making the heroine crazy *grin*).
What’s your take on dangerous heroes? Any particular favorites?
