Shannon here: Suspense author, Jordyn Redwood shares insight into her characters’ fictional romance from her latest release, Proof. Comment on any post dated June 18 – 23 for a chance to win a copy. Deadline: June 30th, 11:59 pm, central time. Here’s Jordyn:
- Nathan, what’s the most romantic thing you ever did for Lilly?
Nathan: I once gave her one of my grandmother’s embroidered hankies. I think that’s when she began to look at me a little differently. Nothing like hand sewn goods to melt a woman’s heart. Maybe it’s a southern thing.
- Lilly, what’s the most romantic thing you ever did for Nathan?
Lilly: Honestly, I was ecstatic when he got the flu. Nathan’s always so good at taking care of me that it was fun for me to doctor him back to health. He won’t let me buy him anything.
- Where is the most romantic place you two have ever been?
Lilly: We were in a cabin in the woods but the circumstances were rather dire. It would be nice to go back and not have someone shooting at us. Right, Nathan?
Nathan: Exactly. Maybe tent camping?
Lilly: Really, you’d sleep in a tent?
Nathan: I could try.
- Where’s your favorite romantic restaurant?
Lilly: We love Fleming’s. It’s a local steak house. I like the food and Nathan likes it when they use the metal scrape to remove the crumbs from the table.
Nathan: The food is good but that is a nice feature. And no one has to do dishes.
- How soon after meeting Nathan did you know he was the one, Lilly?
Lilly: For me, it took awhile to fall in love with Nathan. There was another man in my life when we first met and I was having a serious crisis. Nathan…well, he just never left me. Even when we were physically separated, I had a feeling he wasn’t giving up on me—no matter how desperate my situation was.
- What about you, Nathan. When did you know Lilly was the one?
Nathan: I fell in love with Lilly at first sight. She kicked me right out of the ER and I never forgot her after that. I knew she was the woman for me.

About the book: Dr. Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her. But that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it’s the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lilly sets out to find–and punish–her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, if science says he is not?
