Valentine’s Day 2014

Here is a topic not raised in The Chechen’s Revenge but one that could be addressed since Sean-Guy O’Dwyer-Lariviere certainly has some entanglements with women. Married twice and divorced twice, it would seem that he has some problems relating to women. He does admit in a veiled sort of way that he was not a good husband. In a conversation with Pere Rene, a former military chaplain and now pastor at a church once attended by Sean-Guy, he also makes reference to a female child by his first wife. It is apparent to Pere Rene that the daughter has not been part of Sean-Guy’s life very often and that Sean-Guy seems to have some regrets about that.

On the romantic front Sean-Guy seems to have decided to stand away from relationships with the fairer sex, until he meets the very inquisitive reporter from the Toronto Star, Angela Maria De Luca. Though aggravated by her demands for information about the CAS and its’ current operation, Sean-Guy gradually revises his attitude toward Angela and is surprised when she tells him she thinks they love one another. To avoid a spoiler, I’ll say no more about that.

But think about this for a moment. If the relationship continues into the second novel of the series, now being written, perhaps a Valentine’s moment will need to be considered. The working title of this next novel is A Prairie Vendetta. So far two female characters are in development, neither seen in The Chechen’s Revenge. Both have the potential to be of interest to Sean-Guy outside a purely professional contact. Should Sean-Guy take a greater interest? That’s a question that begs consideration, I think, at a potential to create more romantic difficulties for the Chief Investigator of the CAS.

Here is another thought for your consideration readers. Should Sean-Guy be revealed as having a romantic streak or should he remain stalwart and aloof? What would tickle your fancy? Let me know your thoughts on this ideas. Love to hear your point of view.

Good reading Friends. Thanks for your support.Image
