Writing the Unromance

by Emmie Mears, author of The Masked Songbird (Part of the Harlequin E Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Box Set Volume 2)

masked songbirdThere’s a song by Catherine MacLellan that makes a very good point: “Love never finds you when you want it to; it waits till you’ve stopped waiting.”

When I was younger, I got frustrated by stories that broke people up to get one of the former couple members together with someone else. As I got older and passed through a few relationships, coming out the other side, those stories stopped bothering me as much. When you’re single, sometimes a relationship — any relationship — can seem like the Holy Hand Grenade against life’s trials.

The problem is, not all relationships are good, and they’re certainly not all created equal. Another problem? They change. Sometimes that change is for the better, but when it’s not, it can create some really sticky situations.

As an author, I love sticky situations.

When The Masked Songbird opens, Gwen Maule seems to have the building blocks of a decent life stacked into some semblance of normalcy. Steady job. Roof over her head. Boyfriend. Mates to dream of having a pint with. But some building blocks just don’t fit together.

Gwen’s boyfriend Angus is one of those blocks. A crumbly one at that.

Writing this book was fun for many reasons, and not the least of which because I got to explore what happens when you’ve stopped waiting. I think many of us have experienced that kind of relationship. It starts out good — great, even. There’s passion and connection, eagerness and joy. Our glasses get dunked in rose-coloured paint that blinds us to red flags because they blend in with the pinkish hue of the world we see in front of us.

As time goes on, the rose paint drips off the glasses. Slowly the sun and the rain wear it away until you start to see the person more clearly. If you’re lucky, what you see isn’t so very different than what they look like with a healthy blush. But we all know that’s not always the case. Red flags appear slowly, and when we look behind us, we see they’ve been there all along.

That was what I wanted to show with Gwen and Angus, and while it may sound depressing, it allows for something better to take its place.

And it helps when you’ve got superpowers to let off some steam.

About the book:

 Mildly hapless Edinburgh accountant Gwenllian Maule is surviving. She’s got a boyfriend, a rescued pet bird and a flatmate to share rent. Gwen’s biggest challenges: stretching her last twenty quid until payday and not antagonizing her terrifying boss.

Then Gwen mistakenly drinks a mysterious beverage that gives her heightened senses, accelerated healing powers and astonishing strength. All of which come in handy the night she rescues her activist neighbour from a beat-down by political thugs.

Now Gwen must figure out what else the serum has done to her body, who else is interested and how her boss is involved. Finally—and most mysteriously—she must uncover how this whole debacle is connected to the looming referendum on Scottish independence.

Gwen’s hunt for answers will test her superpowers and endanger her family, her friends—even her country.

The Masked Songbird is currently available in the Harlequin E Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Box Set Volume 2 and will also be available individually on Sept. 1.
