Ornithology & Romance

Actually about the only thing ornithology has to do with this particular post is a very loose reference to ducks and swans.  Specifically, ugly ducklings and the swans who love them. Sounds like an upcoming episode of Jerry Springer, doesn’t it?  Hoo boy.  Yeah, that’s romantic.

Today I’m a guest blogger on the Crimson Romance website, and since the post is about my book, The Bargain, I wrote about having a heroine who is a kind of ugly duckling character.  I had a lot of fun writing a story about an ugly duckling heroine who ends up winning the love of a heartthrob swan who has issues of his own.  Plain Janes are just a lot more appealing to me as a writer than personifications of perfection.  Besides, who doesn’t like to root for the underdog?
