I thought it might be nice to share the character inspiration from Sleigh Bells Ring.
These two characters are a little different because they aren’t a typical romance story couple. They are in their 70s.
If you’ve read the book, you know I mention Jess Milne looks like Harrison Ford. That’s because I really did use Harrison Ford for the inspiration.
I mean… it’s Harrison Ford!
How could Doris help but be charmed by the handsome rancher?
We first met Doris in Blown Into Romance. From the description there, we knew she had white hair and was a little feisty.
That’s why I chose Honor Blackman (former Bond girl) as inspiration for Doris. She’s just perfect!
And how could Jess be anything but smitten with her!
If you haven’t yet read the book, I hope you’ll give it a try, and the rest of the Christmas in Romance stories, too! You can read them all free with Kindle Unlimited!
