Without fail, in every book I write I find there is one chapter that I like the most. In Thorns of Revenge it’s the scene with Jake driving the tractor and Rory sitting on the fender, holding on for dear life. That chapter plays out like a movie for me. I can see the play of shadows across their faces from the hats they wear, the rumble of the tractor as they shout their lines over the noise. And, oh yes, I can see the moment when Rory throws herself at Jake for that impromptu kiss. Did you ever wonder why he didn’t kiss her back at that time? I mean he does finally admit at the end of the book he always loved her. You’d think he would have jumped all over the opportunity Rory gave him that fateful day on the tractor.
Here’s the secret…but if you’re a careful reader you probably already figured it out. It’s kind of hard to think of romance when the person kissing you is also crushing your foot on a tractor clutch. 🙂 Rory retracted back so fast in embarrassment Jake never got the chance to explain himself. Hence, the emotional roller-coaster between them continued for several more chapters.
How about you? I’d love to hear from my readers what your favorite scenes were.
