Thank God for editors.
Here are some things that taken out of the book because it made no sense at all!
- I'd written a scene where Shari (the heroine) found a letter her dead fiance wrote -- some three years after his death.
- Shari's mom is a bitch and I never showed why she was. I just made her mean for no reason.
- I learned what an info dump was. I had written paragraphs upon paragraphs telling a characters back story rather than show how things shaped these characters into who they were.
So, to mark my upcoming decade of romance I'm giving away some of my out of print titles. I'm starting with Cautious Heart.
After catching her fiancé Damien in a compromising position one too many times, Detective Caprice Johnson is fed up with him and love, so she decides to end her engagement once and for all. Believing that a fresh start in a new city is just what she needs, Caprice moves from Chicago to North Carolina. The move, however, does not deter Damien, who follows her in hopes that she will forgive him and take him back. Hours after a very bitter argument between the two, Damien is found murdered in his hotel room and Caprice is the prime suspect.Want to win? Here are the rules:
Detective Nathan Wallace, Caprice's former partner, can't believe the allegations leveled against Caprice. Even at the risk of losing his own job, Nathan joins Caprice, whom he has loved since the first day they met, on her quest to prove her innocence. It is also Nathan's wish to convince Caprice to take another chance at love...with him.
CAUTIOUS HEART is a captivating tale with just the right mix of love, romance, murder and mystery. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to other works by Ms. Hodges.
