Today Debra welcomes fellow TWRP author Chrys Fey to Heroines with Hearts.
Hello, lovely readers of Heroines with Heart! Chrys Fey here. Today, I want to talk to you about heart break and my newest release, 30 Seconds. First, I want to share a little snippet with you:
“Why’d you leave?” (Blake)
“Because I wanted to.” (Dani)
He shook his head. “That’s not good enough.”
“Because I had to,” she shouted. “Damn it, Blake, I love you. I’ve loved you since you made me that damned grilled cheese sandwich. I can’t be near you anymore knowing my feelings mean nothing to you, that there will never be anything between us, that the love I feel for you is worthless. It took me thirty seconds to fall in love with you, and it only took thirty seconds for me to realize you didn’t love me back!”
This is the most emotional quote by my heroine, Dani Hart, in 30 Seconds. In this scene she’s faced with the realization that the hero, Blake Herro, doesn’t love her and only sees her as a victim of the Mob who needs protection. Her heart is broken and she longs to leave, to escape the hurt and forget Blake exists.
To write this scene, I thought about what I would say to Blake if I were in Dani’s shoes, and how I’d feel. Heart break is a feeling we can all identify with whether inflicted by family and friends, or lovers. I gathered all of my past heart break and let my heart speak for Dani. And of course I had to work the meaning of the title into her declaration. Not only does 30 Seconds reference the continuous danger but also how quickly love can strike.
What would you say to someone who broke your heart?
When Officer Blake Herro agreed to go undercover in the Mob, he thought he understood the risks. But he's made mistakes and now an innocent woman has become their target. He's determined to protect her at all costs.
The Mob's death threat turns Dr. Dani Hart's life upside down, but there is one danger she doesn’t anticipate. As she's dodging bullets, she's falling in love with Blake. With danger all around them, will she and Blake survive and have a happy ending, or will the Mob make good on their threat?
