A compelling fictional couple is often what will make or break a book for me.

If I HAD to narrow it down, however, I suppose it would come down to these two: Jamie Fraser and Claire Fraser (Beauchamp) from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, and William Herondale and Tessa Gray from Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices series.

The chemistry between Claire and Jamie is powerful and arresting. Diana Gabaldon writes in such a way that the emotions of the characters feel so raw and real, I would find residual emotions from them permeating into my day-to-day life. I loved that. Plus, Jamie epitomizes the perfect male hero: a swashbuckling highlander, admired by others but with a history and depth of character that makes him immediately likable. Claire is intelligent, strong-willed and sometimes has the mouth of a sailor, all of which are amusing traits for a woman to openly project in the Scottish Highlands of the 1700’s. They make the perfect, dynamic couple.

As for a William and Tessa, their relationship is one wrought with intense longing. As readers, we feel their pain and root for a union that appears to be nearly unattainable. Their love is so intense, yet torturously unfulfilled. Their need for each other sucked me in completely—and for me, that makes for a great story!

Hi Kathleen,
Thanks for your question! I can't say I've ever seen the show, Dominion. To be honest, I almost never watch TV--although I'm addicted to watching movies. I can't seem to find the time for both. Sad, I know! By the sounds of it, I'll have to see if I'm subscribed to Syfy so I can check out this show. I would love to see how it compares to Wormwood. So my angels are sexier? Ha, ha... that gave me a nice chuckle. Now I'm extremely curious to see what the angels are like in Dominion! Thank you so much for telling me about it, Kathleen!(less)

Hi everyone, I would really love to hear your opinion...

I received a big surprise last week. One of my readers, the talented Derek Murphy, spontaneously decided to design a new cover for my post-apocalyptic paranormal, Wormwood. He did three separate mock-ups, all of which are amazing.
But which should I pick?

Could you help me decide by telling me which is your favourite?

To help get a feel for the story, here's a quick blurb:

Against a devastated, post-apocalyptic landscape, a legion of one hundred fierce half-angels is hell bent on purging the Earth of all humans. But one of them, the tormented Tiamat, struggles against his mission, and when he rescues a beautiful woman named Kali, he finds the attraction as troubling as it is dangerous. Can Kali trust the one creature who could be responsible for her ultimate demise?

Thanks so much! ~D.H. Nevins
