What's Between The Covers?

Can a romance fiction involve more than the ‘happily ever after’ between the lead characters?

Well, I certainly think so!

And you don’t have to be an avid romance reader to enjoy the real-life issues that are used as story premises by many of today’s romance authors.
These authors pen reads that are fresh, clear and decisive, a far cry for the ‘bodice rippers’ of old. In fact, the story premise of my latest release, When a Man Loves a Woman explores the issues of betrayal, forgiveness, and perseverance after the lead female character discovers that her ex-husband is gay. Hmmm, you probably didn’t expect that in a romance novel, huh??

That’s precisely my point. Not all romance fiction involves those fairy tale stories of the rich boy meets poor girl. I’m not trying to convert anyone to romance fiction. The choice is yours. However, you just might find a really good read or two in the romance section of the local book store.

Until next time – stay well and be blessed.
