When we write a hero or heroine we focus on their voice. How do we want them to sound not only to each other but to us the reader. Today I’ve got Cassandra Carr who will discuss how a voice can capture a heart.
In Talk to Me, the heroine, Jamie, is seduced by the hero’s voice. Drew is a
sports talk radio host, and Jamie is his new producer. She has to listen to him
for at least twenty hours every week and his raspy, sexy voice slowly drives her
insane. Once he knows how much it turns her on, he uses his words to pull her
It’s a proven fact that both men and women can be turned on by listening to someone
speak. Sure, you can say that seduction is an art form, but there is definitely

Maybe, like Jamie, you prefer one with a bit of roughness to it. Tell me what
you like in the comments below.

Drew doesn’t want to lose a great producer and knows Jamie deserves a real
relationship, but can’t stay away from the sizzling chemistry they create every
time they’re together. Jamie’s insecurities and the very real prospect of
having to leave a great job if this thing doesn’t work out clash hard with
Drew’s fears about opening his heart and the possibility of losing his first
