One of the joys of reading fiction is getting to know the personalities an author has invented. Today, Adriana Ryan joins us to chat about the quirks in her characters. Adriana's paranormal romance novella, Her Heart's Desire, came out this month from MuseItUp.

Hi Anne, and thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today! Since Her Heart’s Desire just came out on the twenty-third of March, I thought it would be fun to do a little list of things I know about my characters that didn’t make it into the story ... A little sneak peek into the quirks of the characters, if you will! When you read the story, you’ll find evidence of these facts peppered throughout. See if you can spot them all! J
I have to start with Millie Fields, of course—the heroine of the novella. Fun facts about Millie include:
1. She can never find her purse. When she gets home from work, she intends to put it down in the same spot every night, but it usually ends up hidden under her bed or in some other hard-to-find spot.
2. If there’s a classic romantic movie in existence, Millie’s seen it.
3. She has yet to find some good quality hair products that will hold up in humid weather (which really sucks, because she lives in Charleston, SC!)
And now, Braedon Hill, Millie’s best friend and pediatric surgeon extraordinaire. There was so much I wanted to share about him that I ended up cutting. So here’s some about him:
1. Braedon secretly reads romance novels because he wants to know what Millie finds so absorbing about them.
2. He often wonders why the female nurses at the hospital seem to stutter so much when they talk to him.
3. When Millie’s parents died, he vowed to himself that he’d become her family and be there for her no matter what.
And last, but certainly not least, the delectable Graham Lance.
1. Graham started using his signature aftershave because a former girlfriend told him it made him irresistibly seductive.
2. If his condo was burning down, and he could only save one thing, Graham would choose his bed. He’s had way too much fun on that thing for it to burn down to ashes. ;)
3. Women with hazel eyes are Graham’s Achilles heel.
I hope you had fun learning more about the main characters in Her Heart’s Desire! I know I had fun dreaming them up. J
