I don't know what it is about bad boys, but I can find them in every century.
It reminds me of my favorite Shakespeare quote:They say, best men are moulded out of faults, And, for the most, become much more the better, For being a little bad.
So I've made Varian just enough bad that he's irresistible and I'm going historical. Why? Because I can. Romance isn't one size fits all and neither are the men you want to fall in love with.
