I loved being able to slip more of Darrin’s backstory into book three, Thorns of Revenge. His story was always there from the moment he took front-stage in book two, but sharing any of it throughout that book never seemed to fit, and always bogged down the flow. Yet, looking back I’m glad I didn’t force his backstory into light. It worked so seamlessly with book three’s plot, and helped me create strain with not only him but his sister, Francesca—which only goes to show, timing is everything.
I can also see a spin-off book for him, but with so much on my writing plate at the moment his continued story will have to wait.
