While I’m hard at work on the second installment of the Undercover Romance Series, I thought I’d share my story about Leo’s name. For a special anniversary a few years back, I finally received my dream diamond ring–The Leo. I decided on the princess cut diamond pictured below. My original wedding set has a tiny little diamond, but still holds a special place in my heart. I wear it around my neck suspended from a heart-shaped ring keeper. I am, and will always be, a hopeless romantic.
When I started writing the book How to Capture Kate about five years ago, I named one of the romantic leads after my ring. Leo Kensington was born. He calls Kate the nickname Princess, also after my ring. Leo is romantic and perfect.
The book originally had a different ending. I took some advice from my son and changed a few details around. I am so happy I did from my readers’ reactions.
