Confusion and Aacks

I loved so much about my first draft of the fourth book until I heard what the publisher of the line I was targeting was looking for.... argh.

I love my heroine. Her spirit. Her reason for her choices. And I love the secret history between her and the hero.

Now I am floundering. I am trying to figure out how to fix my original story idea and have it ready to pitch in a month. But my brain is not cooperating.

I know what I originally wanted to tell and show. I know what she believed. I know why and how he broke down her defenses.

I don't know how to reconcile the beginning thoughts with what I know now....
