Thank YOU! I’m so, so happy you enjoyed Samantha’s story. <3
And honestly, I’ve always wanted to write a character that’s hard to love and doesn’t fit the mold of most romance heroines - if that makes any sense. A lot of times we read about heroines with a dark past, but once that perfect man stumbles into her life, it’s like everything suddenly turns into rainbows and unicorns and sure, that may be the case for some people, but definitely not all. I think that’s what I really, really wanted to capture with Samantha’s character. Sometimes, a man CAN’T fix everything. Sometimes, YOU have to slay your own dragons in order to have a better life.

I’m not sure what really inspired her backstory, it all just sort of came to fruition, you know? I wanted Samantha to be the character readers weren’t sure if they should root for, or want to slap. I knew Samantha was the perfect fit because she’s strong willed, crass, and stubborn to a fault - she’s human, just like the rest of us.

Hope this answers at least some of your question! :)

xoxo
