These two guys were honest with me from chapter one. I knew who and what they were. Made writing their stories easy.
My hero tripped me up in the third book of my Love and Murder series.The Legacy of Love and Murder is set in Austria. My heroine, August, first sees the hero, Inspector Tobias Wolf, as an Austrian James Bond (the Sean Connery variety). He's sophisticated but has a rough undertone, drives a silver Porsche and dresses exquisitely. So I got sidetracked. If you watch some of those old Sean Connery as Bond movies, you'll remember he takes masculinity to the machismo level. In fact, he's kind of a louse when it comes to women. And the way the movies portray 007 pales in comparison to the books.
Unfortunately, when August likened him to James Bond it totally threw me off. Wolf would act one way when the story was being told from his point of view, then he'd go off on some tangent that didn't match. It was chapter eleven before I realized what felt wrong. Wolf was only similar in looks and mannerisms to Bond, James Bond. He's a serious guy yet has a dry sense of humor, a manly man with a soft side for women in trouble. This whole wrong path is causing me a rewrite but that's okay. At last, it's falling into place!
