As most of you know, I’m wrapping up the current story arc for my Penton Legacy series and as I go through edits, I’m torn about what the role of this book should be. So I thought I’d ask you!
The way I see it, a series can end one of two ways:
1. The primary hero/heroine of the last book take up the bulk of the storyline as their relationship develops, but the resolution of their relationship also solves the ongoing issues of the series as a whole. Nik and his love interest are the key players in the book.
2. The book weaves the new hero/heroine’s relationship into the whole cast as the ongoing issues of the series are wrapped up. Nik and his love interest develop their relationship alongside Aidan and Krys, Mirren and Glory, and the rest of the gang.
In other words, should a new romantic relationship be the center of the final book in a series, or should the final book deal with both the new relationship and the whole cast? Could there be a final Penton book without a major role for Aidan Murphy or Mirren Kincaid even though they aren’t the romantic “heroes” of this particular novel?
