Meet the hero, Devon Audley, Duke of March of my new release, ENGAGED IN SIN.  In this scene, Devon has just been woken from a nightmare by the heroine, Anne Beddington… “I mean what did you do to me that made me leap up and slam you onto the ground?” “I—I brushed your hair out of your eyes.” “Exactly.  It was an inconsequential touch, but it set me off like a flame reaching a keg of gunpowder.  I’m mad.  The war, the battles, the blindness, the killing and the grief—I wasn’t strong enough to let it all just glance off me.  I’m no war hero—all throughout the damned thing, I was filled with pain and fury and grief and doubts.  A hero is a man who is filled with confidence, who takes action and doesn’t waste time on remorse.  He doesn’t hide in the blasted dark.  He gets a damned grip on himself.  But I can’t.  I’ve gone out of my wits, and I’m going madder by the day.  I’m not getting better, I’m getting worse.  That’s why I have Treadwell to scare people away.” “You are drinking too much,” she said firmly.  “That is probably why you are getting…

That’s a whole other story, though. Anyway, the six-year old (Grayson) fell asleep watching some cartoon, but the three year-old (Caden) was not about to give up without a fight.
