Cherry Christensen When I was younger, I enjoyed reading teenage romance books. One of my favorite stories was We Belong Together by Elaine Harper. The heroine’s name always stuck with me: Cassandra. (Cassie for short.) So when I sat down to name my own heroine, I brainstormed for a similar name, but with a modern twist. And that’s how I decided on Cassidy.

Tristan was named after one of my favorite TV characters of all time: Tristan Rogers. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the name, he played debonair WSB agent Robert Scorpio on the soap opera General Hospital.
