Heroine Trish Clayborne is the older sister of Bachelor Cowboy heroine Kate. It hadn't been my intention to write about her next, but my editor at the time, Allison Lyons, was interested in Trish, so we decided it was time for the sweet Clayborne sister to have her story. But sweet Trish's life has undergone some changes and so has Trish.
It took some brainstorming with my best brainstorming friends to discover Morgan's secret, but we finally found what made him so serious, and a man who rarely smiled and relaxed. With a strong dedication to his job, he's also loyal and responsible. Halfway through writing the book, I realized that without knowing it, I had modeled him after a character on the TV show Criminal Minds. "Hotch" (Agent Hotchner) was once described by a fellow actor as "the tree that never bends". And that's Morgan. I hope you like him as much as I do.
