Last week, we got a look at Tori, the main character in Fierce. This week, I want to introduce you to Max.
Max 'The Lobo' Estrada: I'm not going to give too much away here. You can find out about Max in the synopsis (pro-fighter, Colombian), but there's also a nice surprise (at least I think so) that you'll find out only by reading (hint: it involves books!)
Here's a teaser of your leading man in Fierce. I'll be honest, these teaser stirs up my emotions, because I know the exact scene it's from, obviously. And, well, it's nice to look at, right?
I'll post another Max teaser on Thursday
Want to know more about how I picture Max, and my physical inspiration for him? Check out my Pinterest Fierce Board. You can also google Roger Huerta :)
We are less than a month away from the release of FIERCE (8/14/14)! So, in preparation, I thought I'd share with you a little bit about the characters, and some teasers, over the next few weeks.
Today, here's a glimpse at your leading lady, Tori "the Amazon" Rhoads:
When you first meet Tori, she's an ex-pro MMA fighter. You will have to read to find out why she left her dream of becoming a professional face-puncher behind.. Ever since, she's been trying to live up to her plan: graduate college, career, marry a guy who can't throw a punch to save his life, get old, die, and all the while keep her fists to herself.
She can be rough around the edges, a little explosive, and her exterior isn't exactly soft. After all, she's grown up in a male-dominated world. Not only has she grown up in it, but she's lived it. But, of course, there's always a side of themselves everyone keeps hidden.
She may have been called a tomboy a time or two (or maybe more than that), she says things that surprise even the guys, and she's always prepared for a fight.
Here's one last quote from her:
"...where my dreams were fermented in the bloodstains on the mat, and the ghosts of my nightmares still haunted the cage..."
