- Sirena, A Debt Paid In Passion? Feb 2014

Note From Dani

I had a firm vision for the opening of this book. The hero would hear that the heroine would not be prosecuted for embezzlement and he’d be furious—right up until she faints. Then he would learn she is pregnant and bam! Everything changes.

That’s pretty much all I had when I began writing it. By the time I turned it in, I had decided the theft was a misunderstanding, but my editor at the time, Megan, said, “What if she really stole the money?”

Hmm. This required a serious re-write but, Oh, the conflict and emotion! It became one of the hardest books I’ve written. Raoul is not only a deliciously angry hero thirsting for revenge, but one who needs to remain sexy as heck. Sirena is guilty, but she can’t be a pushover. These were seriously hard balances to find.

It turned into a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews so I must have managed it.

A Debt Paid In Passion is not directly linked to Proof Of Their Sin, but Lauren and Paolo make a brief appearance. I imagine one day I’ll write the story of Sirena’s little sister, maybe even Raoul’s half-sister, but those are very distant goals.

About Dani Collins

Dani Collins grew up in Maple Ridge, a suburb of Vancouver, when it was still a small town. With a father and both grandfathers switching up between logging and fishing, she grew into a quintessential BC girl: green, natural, and impervious to rain. Despite a lot of canning and hanging of laundry in her childhood, Dani has a habit of leaping into the unknown, which she credits to her ancestor, Samuel Robertson, a boatwright from Scotland who pioneered Maple Ridge and traded furs to the Hudson’s Bay Company in Fort Langley. Given this adventurer’s blood, she’s always been drawn to stories about people braving life in faraway lands.
