Tomorrow's the day! It's release day for Invitation to a Cornish Christmas. In anticipation of that, I wanted folks to have a chance to meet my charming heroine, Rosenwyn Treleven. You will recognize the physical inspiration below for Rosenwyn as the lovely Demelza from Poldark. Rosenwyn is the oldest of Sir Jock Treleven's six red-haired daughters. She's been to London for two Seasons and had some acclaim as an accomplished pianist until a scandal of the heart sent her back to Cornwall for good.
In writing the story, I loved how strong of a heroine Rosenwyn was without being bitter or nasty while not hesitating to speak her mind. When she is out of line, she recognizes it and seeks to make amends. It takes strong person to do that. She is also courageous enough to love a second time even after a disastrous first and it was fun to write that evolution as well as exciting and sometimes challenging to making a compelling case for a Regency era heroine to take her own desires into her own hands regarding the choices she makes in her relationship with Cador.
