The Making of a Hero
Thanks for letting me visit today! I’m excited to share a little bit of my newest release, Divinely Ruined, with everyone here! It’s out now, with Entangled Publishing, and is the first of the Divine Temptations Trilogy. And today…I’m talking heroes.
I’ve been asked, a lot of times, how I come up with characters. In particular…with heroes. Everyone wants to think that dashing knights in shining armor, the man eager to rescue a damsel in distress, still exists. That for every romance hero, a real man like him exists. And in a way, I think that’s true.
Take Tony, my hero in Divinely Ruined, for example. He’s a man who was left behind my his ex-wife, and who is trying his best to provide for his little girl. Hi daughter has become the single most important thing in his life, and nothing else really matters. Not his broken heart. Not his inability to trust. Not even his loneliness that even he can’t accept.
Can you tell me that, out there in the real world, there isn’t a man like him? Maybe his wife left him, like Tony. Or maybe he lost her to a car accident, or sickness. But I believe, somewhere out there, is a guy just like Tony. A guy who, beneath his devil-may-care attitude…is just waiting for someone to come rescue him.
While that rescue might not come in the form of a red-headed, cursing, temperamental angel named Rebecca…well, love works in mysterious ways. And you never know when it might show up and remind you it’s okay to feel. It’s okay to trust.
And it’s great to be in love..

Diane Alberts has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author. Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.
She is a multi-published, bestselling author with Entangled Publishing and Decadent Publishing. She is repped by her fabulous agent, Lauren Hammond of ADA Management. She has,as of this date, two books with Entangled Publishing, and five books with Decadent Publishing. Her February release with Entangled Publishing, ON ONE CONDITION, hit #18 on the Barnes and Noble Bestseller List. She has a lot of projects currently being shopped around by her fabulous agent, and her goal is to write so many fantastic books that even a non-romance book fan will know her name.

She finally meets a decent man–after she’s oath-bound never to touch men again!
Rebecca’s life sucked before she became an angel. Crappy apartment, awful jobs, abusive boyfriends–it was no wonder she jumped at the chance to escape it all and become a real live angel. The problem is Rebecca’s not very angelic, and she’ll have to do more to earn her wings than end her love affair with the word f–er, frick. Especially when she’s assigned to save single father Tony Weis, whose less-than-pure thoughts wreak hell on a telepathic angel’s nerves. It’s all Rebecca can do to keep her hands off him…but when she loses her memory injuring herself to save Tony’s daughter, now it’s Tony’s turn to be her angel and care for her. But will Tony’s devotion tempt her from her angelic path, even if it means being human again?
