BLOG TOUR: Last Kiss by Laurelin Paige

Today is my stop on the Last Kiss blog tour an I am delighted to welcome Laurelin Paige to my blog to talk                   about how she came up with her characters.  

How I came up with my characters:

Emily Wayborn and her friend Amber were the first two characters I imagined vividly. Most of the women I write are strong and intellectual and usually brunette, but I wanted Emily and Amber to be, on the surface, anyway, very different. I pictured the type of women that were trophy wives. There’s a generalization that these women are generally blonde and buxom and materialistic. I wanted to take that stereotype and flip it on its head.

Thus came Emily.

While on the surface Emily is stunning and sexy, she’s also all the things we don’t usually attribute to party girls. She’s smart and calculating and brave and strong. It wasn’t until I was writing the series that I really understood why a woman like her needed to be dominated and how deep this desire went for her.
Reeve’s character developed out of necessity. He became what I needed him to be in order to make the storyline interesting for Emily. He needed to be what she considered her worst nightmare. Notorious and criminally minded were the first traits that came to mind. He needed to be commanding and controlling. Those are qualities that would scare most women. For Emily, he was more terrifying because he was also all the things that she secretly yearned for.

And, of course, he’s also hot as hell and extremely good in bed because doesn’t that make it more fun? 

Last Kiss by Laurelin Paige is out now on ebook, and is released in paperback on 5th July
