My new romantic suspense, The Protector, the third and final novel of The D’Azzo Family saga, released yesterday. It’s been a long road to get to this day and I’m so thrilled readers can enjoy the complete story from beginning to the end. But, I’m in this funky mood and I can’t shake it.
I think I just miss Nathan D’Azzo and Olivia Bennett. I created them over four years ago. As for Nathan, well, you can’t have a family without the loving, but tough as nails, big brother. He had to be in each book. And, I had to keep him close as I figured out how everything would mesh together. When I finally got the chance to bring him into Olivia’s world, well, I’m surprised he talked me.
Maybe I spent too much time thinking about this couple. And then there’s the bit of guilt. I put them through so much, and just when I get them to this point in their relationship, I have to let them go.
Tears filled Olivia’s eyes as she looked out over the crowd. This was what was missing in her life—connection, not only to Nathan and his family, but a community. Her mother would fit right in here. They both would.
“Olivia, what is it?”
Nathan’s love was etched in each feature. She tucked her arm into his and moved in close. “I’m perfect, and I didn’t know that emotion existed until now. I’m yours. Never doubt that.”
As I typed the last few paragraphs, I had tears, the big, ugly kind that makes me thankful I’m alone in my writer’s cave. Their happily-ever-after was just wonderful. What I wanted more than anything was to turn the page, add a new chapter heading, and keep them both around for a little while longer. In fact, I miss the whole D’Azzo family, Emersyn and Alec, Tessa and Eric, Joe D’Azzo, and especially Grace D’Azzo. Grace is a mother-to-all kind of mother. I loved her strength and wisdom.
I know, I have to move on. The Protector, and my D’Azzo family, belongs to readers everywhere. And that’s why I do what I do. I love my job!
There is a light at the end of my tunnel. Last night, I had my first middle of the night three-hour-wide-awake time with my new hero. He just wouldn’t stop talking. That’s a good sign.
I left a free chapter teaser below. It is my hope you will fall in love with Nathan and Olivia, and the entire family as much as I did.
Do you have a hard time writing/reading the last book in a series? Do you also want to turn the page and continue the story for just a little longer? Let’s talk in the comments. My giveaway is a $15 Amazon card to a random commenter. Happy Reading!
Hugs to all,
Nancy C. Weeks
