Japan is very high on my must-visit bucket list and I knew when I started writing Harlequin Presents that I had to write a Japanese hero or heroine. In a way, Reiko Kagawa, my heroine in The Sinful Art of Revenge has been in my mind the longest. She was very patient in waiting for her story to be told and I was thrilled to bits when I got to tell her story. Researching ancient Japanese temples, French aristocracy, how fast bullet trains travel and when cherry blossom trees bloom was an extra delight.
And coupling Reiko with her last-in-his-line Frenchman, Damion Fortier, was well…icing on the cake. But these two didn't have a smooth journey to their happy ever after.
They both had personal baggage – Reiko has deep emotional and physical scars that literally give her nightmares and Damion had his own obsessive traits to battle through. At times it seemed impossible that these two would see their way to a lasting relationship but writing their story was a blast because I got to go along for a thrilling vicarious ride.
