Friday Fun: Character Connections

FridayFunCCochet180Welcome to this week's Friday Fun. Today I'm sharing character connections between my historical fellas. I know there's a chart, but the chart doesn't really go into detail, so I thought it might be fun to tell you a little about how the fellas know each other.  If you're not sure which book a fella might be from, just check out the Fellas page. Most of the historical fellas are there with the exception of Bruce & Jace (When Love Walked In) and Jessie & Eli (In His Corner). Okay, here we go. Ready?

Let's start with Hawk. Hawk went to Harvard for a few years before he got kicked out. In that time, he was best friends with a rookie police officer named Bruce Shannon. Hawk was also madly in love with Maxfield Clarence--who is Edward Clarence's cousin.  Things ended badly between Hawk and Maxfield. At the time, Edward was in England where he meets and shares a deep bond with a fellow who saves his life. His name was Jacky Valentine. Although there was love and a sexual relationship, the two knew they were better off as friends and have remained that way.

Years later, Edward meets and falls madly in love with Julius Knight, who in his youth worked as a prostitute in the bowery. There he unwittingly helped a fourteen year old Johnnie escape a life of abuse and horror by leaving him a dinner knife one night after one too many nights of hearing Johnnie crying in the room next door. To this day, Johnnie wishes he knew the name of the pretty blond boy who had saved his life. Johnnie is one of the brats who Jacky takes under his wing in Algiers after leaving Edward and joining the French Foreign Legion.

Jacky spent a good deal of his youth in New York where he played with a boy named Joe Applin (the cafe owner in When Love Walked In), who was once in love with a rookie officer named Bruce Shannon, but Bruce came back from the war a changed man and their relationship crumbled. They're still friends. It's through Joe's connection with Jacky

After leaving the bowery, Julius and his friends worked the speakeasies and saloons, performing, and taking men for their money. One of the men he tries to seduce is Harlan Mackay. Harlan is sweet on Julius and warns him off before the saloon is raided by him and Nathan Reily--Harlan's Prohi partner and lover. Nathan was once in love with Danny Brogan before they went of to the war and Danny disappeared. Danny meets and falls for gruff detective John Flynn who grew up in Brooklyn and hung out at a gym where he boxed with his best friend (with benefits), Jessie Dalton. They remained best friends.


Over at Lex Chase's Blog for Stop Four on The Impetuous Afflictions Blog Tour!

blogtour300x200

Hi everyone! On the fourth stop of The Impetuous Afflictions Blog Tour, we're over at Lex Chase's  blog! Join Johnnie as he shares his favorite dessert--no we're not talking about Henry, and catch the fourth excerpt from Chapter Two and enter for a chance to win some nifty prizes!


Tour Info:

The tour has 13 stops. The first 6 stops are a personally guided tour conducted by the man himself, Jonathan Wolfe. The remaining 7 stops will give you the opportunity to meet the brats individually, and in some cases they will have a partner in crime. I heard for the final day, Johnnie has somehow managed to drag Chance along. That should be interesting.

Disclaimer: Please note. I can't be held responsible for what comes out of Johnnie's mouth. I've been informed he's on his best behavior, but I think we both know that his definition of "best behavior" differs vastly from ours. 

Serialized Excerpts:

The tour will also feature serialized excerpts consisting of the whole of Chapter Two. So if you haven't read Chapter One, you can go ahead and do so from either my website here:

http://www.charliecochet.com/books/novels/the-impetuous-afflictions-of-jonathan-wolfe/excerpt/

or the Dreasmpinner website here:

http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4362&osCsid=gbo693acupfn294tque6r8jg27

Here's all the info for the tour you'll need. The first stop is The Novel Approach where the lovely Lisa has not only been incredibly kind in letting Johnnie stop by, but has also given The Impetuous Afflictions of Jonathan Wolfe an absolutely wonderful 5 star review!!
