Finding Just the Right Match

When I come up with a story idea, one of the most import aspects and sometimes the most difficult, is to find the right romantic match.  The right hero for the right heroine, two people who, by the end of the novel, will fit perfectly together.  Since AGAINST THE TIDE centers around Rafe Brodie, a rugged outdoorsman, man of the sea, a hardworking male with a very high sex drive, I needed a woman who was his equal.  That meant she had to be tough, strong, hardworking, and though she might not realize it at first, a woman with a very passionate nature. 
Olivia Chandler is all of those things but she’s also a woman with secrets.  Though she’s drawn to Rafe, she knows they can never share a relationship.  Her life is in jeopardy.  Very powerful people want her silenced, and involving Rafe might wind up getting him killed.
But a mutual friend has been murdered and Rafe and Liv are both determined to find the man who killed him.  As the two of them work together trying to help the police solve the crime, Olivia comes to respect and admire Rafe, and she is wildly attracted to his dark good looks and amazing body.
Still, she might have to flee Valdez at a moment's notice.  And there is possible threat her past poses to Rafe.
As the story develops, Rafe comes to believe Olivia needs a man in her life, one strong enough to stand up to a woman like her.  He wants Liv in his life, but from the start, he has knows she's a woman with secrets.  For their relationship to work, Rafe needs to know what those secrets are.
As trouble deepens for Liv, another danger surfaces, one even more threatening. 
AGAINST THE TIDE was a fun and interesting book to write, and matching the two of central characters, finding ways to bring them together during their dangerous, desperate adventure added to the mix. 
I hope you enjoy AGAINST THE TIDE, and next year watch for INTO THE FURY, Rafe's cousin Ethan Brodie's story.
Till then, happy reading and all good wishes, Kat
