Character Profile: Evangeline Connelly (The Blake Boys Series)

            “Is she still going by Evangeline or has she come to her senses and let everyone call her Bonnie again?”

            “She said once she left you, a wave of maturity overcame her, and she wanted to use her first name again.  But I think Bonnie sounds too much like Bo for her tastes.”  He laughed.

           – Bo Sr. and Bo – Executive Desires

Name:                            Evangeline Connelly


Occupation:                Retired                                                

Marital Status:            Divorced

Where I Live:              Albuquerque, NM


Bodine Jamison Sr. is the most maddening man I’d ever been married to, and I’ve been married a few times.  He liked to dig in his heels and stay put while craved excitement and adventure. He loved ranch life but I thought I could change him.  I should have known he’d never move off the Twelve Horseshoes Ranch.  He and John Jacob have an incredible bond and are brothers in every sense of the word. 

I divorced him, or so I thought, and married Buck and we made it last as long as we could. He was a wonderful man who gave me everything I ever wanted, perhaps that was the problem.  When I was wrong, Bo Sr. stood up to me and would tell me so.  It made me mad but it was what I needed.  Despite my bad track record with marriages, I have been blessed to have three wonderful boys.  Bo, Corbett and Wyatt don’t get along but I’m working on that.  They just need a little time and a hearty talking to from their mama about the importance of family. 

I made my debut in Executive Desires when my eldest Bo came home for a long anticipated visit.  It was so good to see my baby even if he does look like his damn daddy.  Corbett and Wyatt are even warming up the idea of Bo being around a lot more.  I’m still mad at his daddy but I’ve never been able to hold a grudge against that man for too long.  I’ve been thinking about him a lot lately.  Who knows, maybe we’ll get reacquainted…

See you soon,
