The Christmas Kiss Character Inspiration

Would you like to see the character inspiration for The Christmas Kiss?

I just realized I never shared this before Christmas!

Let’s start with Cord Granger. He’s a banker by trade who left behind everything that was familiar, to buy a ranch in the Eastern Oregon community of Hardman and start over for both his sake and that of his small son.

Byron Langley made such a great inspiration for Cord’s character. The eyes, the chin, the smile – just how I pictured Cord.

Probably doesn’t hurt that he’s got that hunky factor to him.

Gracy, like Cord, is a new character to Hardman. When I started thinking about her, I knew I wanted her to have red hair and a sweet smile.

Darby Stanchfield was so, so perfect for how I envisioned Gracy.

She truly is just how I envision Gracy!

Then there’s Cord’s son, Bodie.

Pierce Gagnon is exactly how I imagined Bodie would like, right down to a rascally smile.

You can see more of the visuals that helped inspire the story on my Pinterest Board.

Also, you can listen to Gracy and Cord’s “song” – The Gift of Your Love by LeAnn Rimes.

If you haven’t yet read the book, I hope you’ll give it a whirl!
