Okay, I really didn't go too far, but I finally got back a bit of my groove. Yes, I figured out what my cop, my vampire, and my farmer want to do.
Oh yes, did I mention that to get out of my blue funk, I started a story about a farmer?
His name is Sullavan Tanner and he looks remarkably like AJ Buckley on CSI:NY. He's got tattoos covering his arms and shaggy hair - not long, just shaggy. Oh, and he's a burnt out rock and roll guitarist that lost his gig because of his alcoholism.
So who's my heroine? Her name is Marley Lockwood. She's been married once to the man who wasn't her dream. She's now divorced and working for her father on his farm since her mother passed from breast cancer. She's short, got naturally curly dark brown hair, curves, and can sling bales better than the guys she works with.
What's the conflict? He's back from a ten year absence. His career as a musician tanked and now he's picking up the pieces working with his baby sister and brother in law on the family farm.
Oh, and his BIL is his BFF and Marley's older brother. Sully's sister is Marley's BFF and next door neighbor.
To make the farms work, Sully and Marley have to work side by side, but when she gives him the chance he wants, he pushes her away. How can Sully prove that ten years has made him wiser and sure of who he wants -- her.
I love this story because my father is a farmer and I know about baling clover hay.
So now I have three hunks to switch between when I get stuck with one or the other.
Toodles for now. I'm on a roll! : )
