Bad Boys Who Inspire. . . .

By: Lisa Kuehne

What girl hasn’t been attracted to a bad boy at least once in her life?

Sometimes once isn’t enough. At least it wasn’t for me. There was something about a bad boy that grabbed my interest. Like a gambler who can’t say no to the game, I thought I could change them. We’ll just say “luck” wasn’t on my side and most likely wasn’t for any other girls they dated either.  

I failed miserably at converting them. But my love for a bad boy hasn’t completely ceased. I love them in the movies and books. And I especially like to write them as characters. Bad boys bring adventure, a challenge, and danger. Maybe that’s why we can’t give them up . . . they make us feel alive.

One question has always lingered in the back of my mind. Are certain guys destined to become bad boys or is there an event in their lives that push them there?

In the True Intentions Trilogy, two main characters each have unique stories to their bad boy origins.

In book one, True Intentions, we meet Samuel Perry. He may not have started off having bad boy blood, but one crucial event at seventeen changed him forever. . . .

In book two, Deadly Intentions, we come face to face with a new bad boy, Drake, who may look like a typical bad boy hottie, but Drake comes with enough evil and danger he makes the devil look like a kitten. If I had any doubt certain guys are destined to be bad boys, Drake makes me reconsider.

My failure to convert the bad boys in my life just left me with a few scars on my heart. In heroin, Ava O’Brian’s case, failure means certain death.

Will luck be on Ava’s side?

 Ava O'Brian is dealing with more than a teenager's typical temptations of right versus wrong. Ava is unaware she possesses a rare and unique gift, a soul with the ability to influence. Unfortunately, Satan will stop at nothing to gain control of her special ability.

Ava's faith is seriously shaken when she is the sole survivor of the car accident that kills her father and twin brother. When she relocates and faces the ultimate temptation in Samuel Perry, her mysterious classmate living on earth since 1798 to tempt and damn mankind, Ava isn't sure she can resist.

Sam must decide if he will lead Ava straight into the devil's trap or place his immortal existence on the line in order to keep her alive.

What ultimate price is Ava willing to pay for love? What if it means giving up her life or turning over her soul straight into Satan's hands for the boy of her dreams?

This is really great! Bad Boys are the most fun to have around, but they can be very hard on the heart. Your book sounds just divine!
Happy Holidays!

Rhianna said...

I am a complete sucker for bad boys. In my experience the bad boys I've known turn out to just need a girl who won't let herself be intimidated. ;) Mine has turned out to be a really loving daddy too.

Virginia said...

I guess we all love them bad boys thinking we can tame them but I don't think you can totally, so I tried to stay away from them when I was younger. Although I did have one for a while. Your book sounds really good and I would love to read it.

While I love reading about bad boys, having dated a few, they are definitely my cup of tea for a long and happy relationship.

Kimber An said...

I always avoided 'bad boys' in real life, regardless of how attractive. As a child of divorce, they just were not worth the risk to me. I was certain after observing my mother that they could not be changed, although now I agree it's possible. Nevertheless, I'm happily settled with my 'nice guy' husband of a decade and a half, thank you very much.

But I do like *reading* about bad boys!

Catherine Lee said...

I hopped around and sent all of my answers to Erika!

It was fun.

Ho, Ho, Ho...
