New York Times' best-selling novelist Kyra Davis revealed to USA Today the now-defunct soap supercouple helped inspire the duo at the center of her new novel, Dangerous Alliance.  Said Davis:

I grew up with Todd and Blair, and I loved the idea of these two troublemakers joining forces and wreaking havoc on their enemies while engaging in their own passionate and tumultuous romance. In many ways my soap days have influenced all of my romance books.

Dangerous Alliance is Book Two in the Pure Sin series (following Deceptive Innocence). The sudsy tale centers on a woman named Bell who is desperate to get revenge on the ruthless patriarch of the powerful Gable banking dynasty. What she didn't count on was falling in love with Lander Gable, son of the man who framed her mother for murder. Looks like my Kindle Fire will be getting a workout this New Year!

Davis also counts The Count of Monte Cristo and Wuthering Heights among her inspirations, so Todd and Blair are in good company! For more on Kyra Davis, click here.
