Guest Author Allyson Young talks Inspiration for Winners (Marking Time) - @EvernightPub
Inspiration for Winners (Marking Time): I wrote this series primarily because of a woman who married her foster brother, much to the initial chagrin of other who saw it as incest. I do not condone incest given the abuse of trust, but when one considers this young woman’s story it wasn’t at all incestuous. She was placed in a foster home at a young age and her foster brother was considerably older and never used his position to take advantage of her. She came to know him well as an individual and a friend, a mentor, long before she saw him in a boyfriend/girlfriend light and he kept his distance even then. He was an honorable person and aware of the fall out, so while she struggled with her feelings, he waited for her to grow up and move out on her own before they began a relationship. They married and are presently expecting their third child—and from all outward appearances have a happy, loving relationship. And better yet, others have come to accept them. I told her she inspired me to write about the possibilities and she was thrilled. I added a best girlfriend with her own unrequited love story and a HEA because everyone needs support!
Vet-in-training Sinclair Renton, and her cowboys, Craig and Ashton Russell, are finding their way in ménage, just as Sheriff Reece Murdoch and poor little rich girl Candy Grant are rediscovering their historical connection—now flavored with a little kink, too.
But it seems love and passion can’t solve everything. Sinclair must face a personal demon in the form of the first woman Craig and Ash shared, while the brothers need to find ways to accept Sinclair’s profession and all the risks it carries. Candy, on the other hand, must deal with the legacy of her father’s benign neglect, and Reece has to face a surprising worry that he might not be enough for the woman he’s waited for.
Will the lovers be able to overcome the challenges they face? Will they end up losing all they have fought for, or will they be winners in love?
