Slashing scenes

When I first wrote Starr and Callum, I had such a clear idea of who the heroine was.
Fun, flirty, sassy, resilient.

Yet there's a scene where she stops a scintillating kiss from Callum.
I need her to do it yet it doesn't fit in with her character.
This is just one of the dilemmas facing me as I tweak this Modern Heat.

I'm a third of the way there. Have slashed scenes (which always kills me!) and tweaked others.
Aiming to have this done by the end of the week...hopefully!

And Chapter 5 of ONE INDIAN SUMMER is now live at eharlequin. Enjoy. :)

Hugs on the scene slashing :)

I don't think I'd be able to stop a scintillating kiss from any of your heroes. Good luck to her! :D

With the title of the post, my thoughts went to a totally different direction. LOL ;) That has to be tough, getting rid of scenes that you like or thought were good, but still have to go. . . hmm, if she has a good enough reason to stop the kiss (though, really, why would one want to? LOL), then it probably would still be within her character. Just has to be the perfect reason. Did that make sense? :)
