A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME…
As a writer, there are a lot of choices to be made around names. Naming your book. Naming your characters. Naming towns or cities. Here are a few of the ways the writers of the Dangerous Attraction Boxed Set choose names.
Kaylea Cross: I like my titles to be punchy, so I generally use adjectives or adverbs. For my characters, I use my old baby names list. I have a long list of names DH rejected for our own babies, so now I use them for my characters!
Toni Anderson: I always get tangled up in knots over character names. I don’t want too many names beginning with the same letter. I want the hero and heroine’s names to compliment each other, and I want the heroine’s first name to go with the hero’s surname just in case they get married. I love Irish names but readers have trouble with them. I didn’t realize ‘Sorcha’ would be a problem until my husband told me the narrator of the audio version of STORM WARNING mangled the name. I was like, seriously? I went through a phase when all my bad guys were called Brian. I have no idea why poor old ‘Brian’ got such a bad rap. I’m over that now. Hopefully.
Sharon Hamilton: Fallen SEAL Legacy was from the tradition that all SEALs receive a KA-BAR knife upon graduation in a secret ceremony. Engraved on that knife is the name of a fallen SEAL, so the name started from that. The hero is ordered to find out about the family of the SEAL’s name engraved on the KA-BAR he wears.
Rebecca York: For character names, I often go to the Social Security data base of baby names and see what’s popular. (That’s how I found out that there are a gazillion little boys named Ethan—which is the name of my adult son.) I also have an excellent book called THE BABY BOOMER’S BOOK OF BABY NAMES, which gives names by ethnic origin. This helps me when I’m looking for a name to match my character’s background. I might use the name of a real town or a real restaurant in my books, but if something bad is going to happen there—like a murder—I make up a name.
Lori Ryan: I usually use name directories based on things like region and also time frame for when the character was born. For places, if I’m using a fictitious place I try to use a name that is similar to a real name of a town or city in the region. So Woodland might become Woodham.
Marie Astor: When picking a character name, I’ll browse a book of baby names and select a few possibilities. Then I will narrow my choices by thinking about the character’s physical appearance, temperament and the role he / she plays in the story. Picking a title is a very involved process for me. I try to keep my titles short, but also to convey the mood of the book. For Catching the Bad Guy it was a little easier since the first book in the series is titled To Catch a Bad Guy, and I just continued with the theme.
Excerpt from SEE ME IN YOUR DREAMS from Patricia Rosemoor:
Keelin swam up out of her dreamlike state to find herself pressed against Tyler’s chest. He was holding her fast and she was clinging to him as if this were the most natural act in the world. She vaguely reasoned that she should be uncomfortable, should push herself away. Regain some distance and a perspective on the situation. This man didn’t even trust her, for heaven’s sake.
But the last thing she desired was to put any distance between them, Keelin realized.
His body heat was comforting…distracting…Her pulse surged and unexpected emotions warred through her. Forgetting his distrust, she concentrated on him. On the man in pain. She wished she could will the misery from him, absorb it into herself – unreasonably, perhaps, given his antipathy toward her – or at the very least render the anguish he was suffering impotent.
She couldn’t help herself. Following her natural instincts, she slid her arms up around his neck and comforted him as best she could. He shuddered against her.
“It’ll be all right,” she whispered, only hoping she was uttering the truth.
“Keelin, I have to get her back.”
“I know. I know.”
“Whatever I have to do.” His mouth pressed into her hair. “Anything.” Whispered against her temple. “I’ll do anything to get my daughter back.” Trailed across her cheek. “Give them anything they want!”
Eyes stinging, heart churning with things she didn’t understand, Keelin turned her face up to Tyler’s, felt his breath brush her skin. “I believe you.”
Threading her fingers through the thickness of his dark hair, she was startled by her own boldness. For a moment, their gazes caught and she responded to the torment she read in his eyes. Torment that came at least partly from guilt, she thought, even as her body quickened to his.
How could this be? How could her blood rush with such longing now? At such a desperate time when personal want should be as nothing?
Excerpt from CHRISTMAS CAPTIVE by Rebecca York:
A sense of urgency sent Hannah running down the hall. She considered stopping at other doors, but she let her intuition guide her as she sped past the elevator and then down into the section that must mark the twenty-first century.
She was breathing hard when she finally stopped at the door for the current year. Was he there? Or was she making all this up?
She listened for a long moment. Again she heard Christmas music, carols, not one of the popular songs that had invaded the holiday.
As O Holy Night began to play, she turned the knob, pushed the door open and stepped into the room. For a moment she fought a surge of disappointment. She was in Jordan’s bedroom—back where she’d started. Or was it?
The large four-poster was there—with a different spread. But the screen and the hospital bed were missing. And in the shadows by the fireplace, she saw a man standing very still, watching her with unnerving intensity. She dragged in a sharp breath. It was him.
This was the moment that she had been waiting for, and a surge of relief swept through her. She’d come here to make contact with him, and finally it was happening.
He tipped his head to the side, staring at her with an expression she couldn’t read. The last time she’d seen him, he’d been wearing a hospital gown. But like hers, his outfit had changed significantly. Now he was dressed in dark slacks, an open sports coat, and a white dress shirt.
His brow wrinkled as he looked at her. “Do I know you?”
“I’m Hannah Andrews,” she said, waiting to see if the name registered.
Instead of showing any sign of recognition, he asked, “And what are you doing here?”
“I’m your nurse.”
He snorted and waved his arm impatiently. “Oh come on. I don’t need a nurse.”
As she took a step into the room and closed the door behind her, he came out of the shadows. He looked fit and tanned, his hair mussed, the way he had looked in the pictures she’d seen—not like the man lying unconscious on the bed. But when she saw what was in his hand, she gasped.
Excerpt from DEATHSCAPE by Dana Marton:
Ashley woke a little before seven, shivering. Jack slept in her room in the armchair by the window, his long legs stretched out in front of him.
Moonlight poured in the window unobstructed, lighting his face, the hard edge of his jaw barely softened by sleep, the rough stubble testament to relentless days of hunting a killer. Her heart turned over. He was a mixture of warrior and protector and sheer exhaustion. And sexy.
Her gaze settled on those lips that had kissed her into near incoherence not that long ago.
He woke as she stirred. Blinked slowly. “Everything okay?”
He pushed to his feet and came over to the bed. Waited. When she didn’t object, he slipped in beside her and took her into his arms.
This was nice. Okay, way more than nice. He tightened his hold on her, and she burrowed into his heat.
He kissed her forehead. Then the bridge of her nose. Then dipped his head lower to her mouth.
His lips were warm and gentle. And exactly what she needed. Heat suffused her as he caressed her lips with his own, then increased the pressure just a little until she opened up and let him in.
The heat built with every stroke of his tongue, then raced across her skin as he moved his hands over her body. It wasn’t the kind of sexy seduction splashed across the silver screen by Hollywood. They were new to each other, unsure, awkward. They were both fully dressed.
Heck, she was dressed for the Iditarod.
Not for long. Because soon the heat became too much, and she reached for the hem of her sweater. He helped to remove it. Then the long-sleeved cotton shirt under that. He hesitated at the plain cotton bra.
She stifled a groan as he stared at her chest. Her first sexual encounter in years, and she was wearing grandma thermal underwear. He didn’t look appalled. In fact, his gaze heated.
He claimed her lips again, his hand moving to her breast, outlining the bra, then cupping her gently. He trailed kisses down her neck, to the top of her breasts, his hands hesitating on the material as he fought with himself.
He looked up with a tortured look in his eyes. “You need rest.”
“I need you,” she said simply, and that was all the encouragement he needed.
