Today the spotlight shines on..................................Serena Winter and Drake Weston
Jamie Carie was born to write romance! Her French/Irish heritage is a combination to be reckoned with so her books are filled with passion and energy :) Here's a peek behind the scenes of her second novel, The Duchess and the Dragon.
Merci, mon ami, Jamie:~
Brief physical description:
Another Debra Sievers painting completely captures Serena for me. It’s called “Restoration” which is exactly what she is for Drake.
Drake is completely gorgeous! The epitome of a tall, dark, handsome Englishman. He’s a duke, wealthy beyond measure (for some parts of the story anyway:), and sought after by the most beautiful women in the world.
I’m thinking a Pierce Brosnan type?
Strengths and weaknesses:
Serena’s strength is also her weakness. She was raised with a strong faith (Quaker) and lives the life of a true servant for God.
When Drake enters her life, her faith is tested. She has to decide what she really believes and what she might have to give up to stay true to it.
Quirk (if any):
Serena is an artist and a little scattered at times (Boy, can I relate to this!). When she is in her creative mode, she gets very intense and doesn’t want to be bothered!!
Your inspiration for the character.
My inspiration for Serena was, at first, only a sweet, servant-like character with a strong faith in God. But as the story developed, I really learned her gentle strength, how a soft answer is more powerful than a booming voice, and how strength of character (and faith in God) will get a person through the trials of life.
A pleasure to hear from you, Jamie, as always!
Look for Jamie's soon to be released novel, Wind Dancer, hitting stores in January but being reviewed here first!
