Bri has only one family member in whom she places any trust. Lord Levi has proven more than once that she can count on him for help despite opposition from the rest of the family.
Big and friendly in a bluff sort of way, Levi has more heart than common sense sometimes. He is built like a bear, massive and intimidating if not for his boyish countenance: smiling dark brown eyes, dark brown curls and laugh lines.
Levi is young with the cares of an earldom on his shoulders. To make matters worse, he has no liquid assets. While he helps where and when he can, there is only so much one can do when others are in control...
Why did I create Levi?
Honestly, I couldn't stand the thought of Bri being so alone. At the same time, she needed someone who was nearly powerless to help her. If her cousin was able to save her, what use would she have for Adam?
So Levi was "born." He loves his cousin in an entirely platonic sense, feeling as though she is a sister. He doesn't have the money or power that some of her relatives do, the very relatives determined to control her and her money.
Levi is nearly polar opposite of Adam. He is not bitter, does not have any sort of animosity towards women, finds all of life a bit of a lark, and doesn't see Society as completely black. I found it interesting to write him, even as a secondary character.
It was all these differences that led to me writing Levi's book, Deception.
