Phoenix Rising Update!

This story has been a long time in coming! It has given me some headaches over the last few months, I can tell you. The original idea has morphed a few times along the way. Rhys has taken his time to show me his character, but he's finally talking and I am super pleased with the results.
I originally wrote a few chapters of this story, but ended up binning the whole lot. That was deeply frustrating as a writer. I couldn't find the dynamics between Rhys and his match Taylor. Their motivations were shrouded somewhat in mystery and what I was working on just wasn't right. That is why I left them alone for a while and concentrated on Shadow of Suspicion.
Coming back to this story, I rethought a great deal of the details. I found a whole new angle and motivation for both characters. Some of the supporting cast went through a metamorphosis too. The concept for the story is the same, but many things in it have changed.
So, now we have a heroine who wins her match in a competition she didn't enter (her friend takes it upon herself to enter for her) and a hero who wants to get his hands on a trust fund. Needless to say, neither of these two want an actual relationship and certainly not with each other! Fireworks definitely ignite and it's so much fun to write. I can't wait to complete this book and share it all with you. It will be worth the wait.
