Say Hello to the Threesome of Island Pleasures!
When I decided to write Island Pleasures, I already had my heroine all picked out. Carly was first introduced in A Bid for Love, and I had a good idea what type of heroine she would be. Carly is a fun loving blond, who is has a nose for the news, or rather the gossip since she works as a reporter for a tabloid magazine. She may come across a bit ditzy but she’s also very insightful and dedicated to her job. Since I’m a big fan of opposites attracting, I decide that one of her love interests would be more reserved and stuffy, the complete opposite of my Carly. That’s where Quinn comes into the picture.
Whereas Carly has a very sunny personality, Quinn is more brooding and dark, although he works on a Caribbean island where he should be more relaxed. Poor Quinn has a hard time going with the flow since he’s a workaholic. Carly and Quinn clash right away, mainly because they have a past together as former lovers in college. But since Carly is working undercover, she tries downplaying her vivacious personality and physical appearance and pretends to be her prim and proper twin sister, Cassidy. But since Carly is so outgoing and has a mouth on her, Quinn figures out pretty early on about Carly’s sneakiness and why she’s using a fake alias.
Then there’s Brian aka Woody who is very laid back and a big ladies man. Woody is also a redhead, loves the beach and is Quinn’s best friend and the voice of reason. Woody falls for Carly’s deceit, and when he finds out how she tricks him, he’s pretty forgiving, unlike Quinn who wants revenge. Quinn’s revenge leads to something not only surprising for Carly, but for Woody, who is the catalyst for Quinn forgiving Carly and for them to move on from the betrayal both have experience from one another. How Quinn and Carly get over this betrayal is the biggest surprise in Island Pleasures, especially when Woody becomes intimately involved with the couple.
Island Pleasures’ three important characters have very different personalities, which I feel is something important when creating a story, in the hopes the reader will enjoy what they’re reading and look forward to more stories set in this world I’ve created.
