The heroine I gave Amon is Thea, who is the closest I've ever gotten to writing a female virgin. She wasn't a sexual virgin, but she hadn't anywhere as much experience, sexually or otherwise, as her hero. However, they fit together well, allowed him to be more Alpha than he might have been with a more experienced partner, and I enjoyed writing her as much as him.
Also back in this second book is Amon's servant, Gethen, a dark Sidhe who gets a much fuller role in Destiny Renewed. Writing Gethen's part in this book was far more emotionally draining than any other character I've ever written before as he doesn't make it through the book.
I've enjoyed my time with these characters, just as I enjoyed my time with the hero and heroine from the first book, Varek and Callia. I'll be spending more time with Destiny Renewed's characters as I type the story, editing and adding along the way, but until then, it's time to take a little break and relax for a few days.
