It was always the plan to get these two crazy kids together. My plan, anyway. Not long after A Place With Briar was published in 2014, I received emails from readers interested, surprisingly, in Byron’s character and whether or not he would wind up the hero of his own book. More than one suggested that he’d be well-suited to Adrian. However, when Adrian’s book (His Rebel Heart) was released in 2015, it wasn’t Byron who wound up being her hero. I can explain. This was a part of my master plan, you see. Adrian winds up with the rebel, James. And for anyone still shipping Adrian and Byron, Adrian’s mother’s similar and woeful thoughts on the subject are for you.
In Wooing the Wedding Planner, not only do Byron and Roxie wind up living in the same roomy Victorian house and play tug-of-war over whose possession it should wind up in, they realize reluctantly that they have more in common than they hoped. They both wish to live alone. Neither of them want a relationship. And both of them know what it’s like to start a life over from scratch. He’s the cynic; she’s the optimist. However, living with someone has a way of showing them in a new light. It’s not always flattering, but it is most always honest. And for two people struggling against the demands of the status quo of their new present lives, honesty is critical.
So to the readers who saw Byron’s character going another way, I hope I’m redeemed through the journey that he and Roxie take together in Wooing the Wedding Planner. It was an emotional write. Whenever I have the opportunity to grow through story or character, it’s a memorable experience, even if it isn’t easy. But it is most definitely worth it, as Byron and Roxie’s story was. Cheers to them and cheers to you!
