The story surrounding its history was something of a sad story, Read Here and I felt really bad about the man who had lost his wife in a tragic accident, and wanted to capture that sorrow in the person of Benton Jessup. Of course, it turns out HEA, but that was the impetus to write the story.
I love writing and reading romance so this little story was just a natural outcropping of my favorite things, books and love. And who could deny such strong influences?
I have always loved anything and everything Irish, so the person of Kitty Beebe just popped up and demanded page time. I was grateful because she was so easy to write.
I think there is a lot of me in the story, and maybe you will find a lot of you too. I hope you enjoy it!
