My excitement at the prospect of seeing
Her Defiant Heart
back in print via ebook was tempered by my disappointment in rereading it after so many years on the shelf. The story held up, I thought (rather immodestly), but the hero did not. He needed to find a gentler side. I used so many exclamation points on the first go round that it seemed he was shouting at everyone. More judicious punctuation had a moderating affect on his disposition, if not his drinking.
Oh, he is still a brooding, wounded soul in need of healing, angry certainly, impulsive often, but with more awareness of his demons this time. What I could not repair with word choice or character insight, I left in the capable hands of the heroine and my faith in happily ever after.
