Dark dark dark
OK--just about to delve into my serial killer's mind. And after reading Mary's blog about Nora's book, 'Bluesmoke' the other day, I'm wondering--how dark do you like to go?
I'm a big fan of Tami Hoag, Tess Gerritsen and Lisa Gardner and other darker books. I like knowing why bad guys do these things, I like to be in their heads, I don't like just being presented with gore.
I know some parts of Her Sanctuary are a little dark--but not in a serial killer fashion, in that the characters aren't all sweetness and light. I have a hunch I could really get into the dark-side, but I'm also very conscious of wanting to keep the story a romance. I know we all have our favourite type of story to read, but I'm curious about peoples' opinions?
