Throwback Couple Spotlight: Derek & Charisma

Derek and Charisma. A superstar hockey player with a tabloid love life and a head strong Reed woman with a penchant for finding trouble at every turn. Derek knew from the moment they met that Charisma was different from his usual exploits. There was more to her than her publicized, tumultuous romances and the rumor mill that loved to gossip about her. This powerful couple hit the ground running the day they met and it’s been amazing to see where life has taken them.

It was clear Charisma hit a nerve with readers (you either loved her or hated her). Just when you thought you had her pegged, she’d surprise you. Through it all she’s remained tough, spunky and stylishly dressed while she took a few tumbles with bad boys who were no good for her. With help from Grandma Reed, she found her footing again and that led her to the love of her life, Derek.

New readers, check out their books in the series, Slap Shot and their sequel Playing For Keeps.

Throwback Couple Spotlight: Tate & Isabelle

Tate and Isabelle. From their first meeting in Seth and Morgan’s kitchen to their adventures in Las Vegas, it was clear that this musical couple were meant to be.

Tate’s character took on a life of its own after we met him in Seth and Morgan’s stories. It became clear there was a bigger story to tell of the country singer who lived on the Blake family homestead. As Tate’s troubled past unfolded, I saw an opportunity to flesh out his life and it became apparent the velvety voice rogue just needed the right person to set him on the path to true love. And who else could do it but a violinist in the process of mending her own broken heart and finding her way? And a Reed woman to boot? Isabelle may be the more reserved of her cousins, but she still has a spark that sets the women in the Reed family apart.

New readers, check out their books in the series, Texas Heat and their sequel Cowboy’s Heart.
