Jensen Eccles of Supernatural fame is the actor most like Chase McCann, the hero of my next book.
It's HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.
Now I don't mean the brooding tortured soul part of Jensen, but the easy-going rascal aspects.
My heroine, Sylvie Stark, reminds me of a young Cameron Diaz, with long curly hair, who's wound a bit tight and way too serious about EVERYthing. Sylvie is all career, all the time, absolutely dependable and utterly responsible. Chase, well, not so much. But he knows how to enjoy the moment like nobody else.
As I tell their story, they both have some rubbing-off to do. Uh-oh, now where is your mind? I MEANT their personalities. They have plenty of those sparks going on already.
Sylvie needs to loosen up a little in both work and her personal life and Chase needs to buckle down and commit himself in both work and love.
Oh, and there's a puppy who brings out Chase's sense of home and Sylvie's sense of fun, which works out handily for all three of them.
I've been thinking about compatiblity--hey, it's easier than working through the plot snag in the story I'm struggling with.
My husband and I have differences. I'm kinda Sylvie-ish and he's pretty Chase, but we make it work. In fact, our differences strengthen our relationship.
Is that always the case though? Do you think opposites in personality spice up a relationship or doom it to failure? Does it matter what those differences are? What are the must-haves in couple compatibility?
Oh, and, while we're on the subject of Supernatural, what did you think of the season finale closer??? Don't get me started....
