Take Me in the Night Dreamcast
Before we start, let us introduce ourselves. We are R.L. Kenderson. We are two best friends (Renae & Lara) who write romance novels together. Take Me in the Night is our newest release, and we are so excited to share it with you!
The heroine and hero of this book are Maddox Wolfe and Addison Graham. After binge watching four seasons of The Last Ship, I (Renae) fell in love with Travis Van Winkle who plays Lt. Danny Greene. So when we started writing Take Me in the Night, I pictured Maddox as Travis Van Winkle (or as Danny Greene) the whole time, and Lara just went with it, because that’s what best friends and co-authors do. (Ha!)
Here is Travis. The image on the right is from The Last Ship. Since Maddox is a former Navy SEAL, this picture is perfect.
Unfortunately, Maddox was the only character we had pictured before the book started. When this dreamcast was asked of us, we had to do some thinking. We wanted someone who could be sweet but who could also stand up for herself. We decided Alexandra Daddario would do a great job playing Addison.
As for the rest of the group, this is who we would pick to play the characters if we were lucky enough to have our book made into a movie:
Brantley (Addison’s father) ~ Sam Neill
Foster (Maddox’s brother) ~ Scott Eastwood
Kelly (Maddox’s sister) ~ Rachel McAdams
Serena (Maddox’s niece and Addison’s assistant) ~ Hailee Steinfeld
Simon (Brantley’s right-hand man) ~ Alfie Allen
Betty (Maddox’s mother) ~ Swoosie Kurtz
Sheriff Whitlock ~ James Woods
Flash ~ Chris Hemsworth
Evan ~ Ryan Guzman
Olivia ~ Ali Wong
Brandon ~ Joseph Morgan
