Researching Characters - Mission Impossible to Forget

Congratulations to "Natalija", the winner in Jacki's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

Music is an important element in Mission: Impossible to Forget (releasing February 2020). Emily Hewitt is a professional cellist and her life revolves around music. Nick Jenkins is a former Special-Ops Marine who’s struggling with hearing loss, which has devastated his life.

I wanted to better understand Emily’s passion, so I’ve been researching and listening to professional cellists, primarily Jacqueline du PrĂ©. She was an amazing talent. You can enjoy one of her performances on YouTube by CLICKING HERE.

Part of what I’ve learned about professional musicians is how singularly focused they are on their art. As an author, this provides strong conflict between my characters. How does Emily deal with the distraction of her feelings for Nick? How does a strong, alpha male like Nick deal with an independent woman who may–or may not–want his intrusion into her life?

I’m still not sure how they will find their way to happy-ever-after, but that’s part of the fun in writing romance!

Coming Soon from Jacki Delecki ~ Mission: Impossible to Forget

Former Special-Ops Marine Nick Jenkins, is out of a job and out of patience. Discharged from the Corp because of hearing loss, the last thing he wants to do is babysit someone who’s surrounded by the haunting sounds of music he can no longer appreciate.
