In Words of Divinity, after a failed attempt at a romantic fling, Liam and Daniel spend the next three years at each other’s’ throats. They’re far from kind to each other and barely civil. Because of this, their romance takes a long time to develop. Before it can, they have to move past the years of insults between them, which is no simple task. In fact, it takes a fair amount of the book for them to stop insulting each other whenever they feel snubbed. Still, I feel that their relationship develops very naturally as they overcome their petty grievances – something that isn’t always common in a romance, where people become lovers overnight.
