Recently, several people have mentioned my latest release, Sweet Reunion, is me returning to the angst-loving voice. I admit I did have a few lighter romances recently, most notably Car Wash and Beyond the Norm, but others were probably not up to the angst found in Perfect Man or Trust or even At Long Last.
When I set out to write Sweet Reunion, I didn't really think, wow I haven't written anything pain-filled lately. Honest! It's just that as I started writing Jason Sweet the character went that way for me.
It's true I do like angst. I think that is why Ava March and I work so well together. We both like the angst. Though, you know, once I suggested only half-kidding that we should co-author a book together and she didn't even respond, lol! Don't know what that says.
I have to admit though, that my next few books are probably going to be on the more heart-breaking side. I don't mean my next two releases, Ticket to Ride (you'll have to decide if this is angst-filled or not) and The Best Gift (it's a Christmas story remember), but rather the next several projects.
So, um, yeah, I will say now, that if angsty romances are not your thing, you might want to stay away from those set in Sutter's Bay for sure. So, as my dear friend, Jack, said the "angsty Shawn is back".
