I write this post in the middle of building up the family for the Bellini Family, which is a detail and large as the Hearts.
When the Bellini Family came to me, the first person I met was Dalton.
I guess that’s why he’s so popular and I’m so passionate about him.
Next came Armando Bellini. Which is mostly why I’m writing The Other Side of Love first.
But yet, a lot of people who read my books like Dalton Bellini
Maybe because he’s so untouchable or the way everyone knows him before he even steps into a room.
I don’t know, but I think i knew him before I met him. His presence was similar to my father’s. He was ominous yet mysterious and could demand respect before he even spoke.
I liked that most about Dalton Bellini.
I also like that he doesn’t get along with anyone. His crassness and arrogance really grates on my nerve but at the same time turns me on.
Dalton Bellini is bigger than you can imagine.
He serves a higher purpose. Not only in the family he runs and the business he owns and the success he’s accomplished…
Dalton is one of my alpha males that knows what he wants, gets what he wants and takes no crap from anyone …
Now in all this making him untouchable, I found it hard to get a woman who would could possibly equal him.
I could do what I did to Jaelen Gates from Stealing Innocence and that’s to find a Kimberly – soft spoken and loving – to the most man obnoxious evil man this side of the Mississippi. (I’m speaking about Jaelen, not Dalton. LOL).
Or I could find someone just as successful and just as irrittated by the men species and let them duke it out for love.
Or I could find someone stronger than him…
There are a lot of possibilities, but it’s not just finding anyone for Dalton. I need to find someone right for him. Someone Dalton could see no other reason than not to be with.
The Bellini men love differently and more powerfully than any of my other family lines of men. They have this unique ability to capture a woman and make her feel like a queen.
Dalton, being the leader of the family, is going to be a tough cookie to crack, because he’s resolved that he won’t get married.
That’s going to be a harder wall to break down than finding the girl… I’m talking to myself right now. The most scary part about all of this is that, I have to be in Dalton’s head. He’s one of the charaters I’ve created that I really hate doing.
Along with Dalton, there’s Lethal Heart and King Heart. I could do without those three some nights, but I’m in love with them… just very far away. LOL.
(That last paragraph probably made no sense to anyone who has no been with me during a live story to hear me vent my frustrations on writing those characters into a story.)
So to answer the reader’s question: Yes, Dalton will get a woman. I’m still deciding exactly who he should get… maybe a character my readers already know… or a new character from somewhere else.
To answer another reader’s questions: No, he is not getting with Sharlie Costello, but they did have relations in the past. Sharlie is the only person who I’ve created that I know Dalton has slept with … to date.
My love hate relationship continues with Dalton Bellini as I write four more books with him in there, all the while wonderful, who will capture Dalton Bellini’s heart… but first I have to find it, right?
