The second book in the Sinclair Island Romance series is underway!
This time my hero and heroine are in their 50s.
As has frequently been pointed out, romance novels tend to focus on the young, as if love were somehow the exclusive province of those who haven’t yet reached middle age.
Happily there is a growing fiction genre that embraces the romantic adventures of older persons, and I’m pleased to add my body of work to it. 🙂
Unlike my previous two novels, the title character in ‘Dinny’s Challenge’ is not the horse but the heroine. But don’t worry – equines still feature big time!
Another departure from my usual format is that the novel is written from two points of view – the POV of the hero and that of the heroine.
Dinny Dumont has been widowed for four years at the opening of the book and is about to have her decades long beliefs challenged.
The cause of this upheaval is an act of cowardice she committed thirty-four years ago which is now coming home to roost.
She’s invited to attend the wedding of her friend Emma to the handsome Fulton on Sinclair Island, little knowing that she’s about to run into the man she wronged …
Needless to say, sparks fly and emotions are high!
But I must get back to the manuscript and figure out how the story ends. 😉
I’ll talk to you again soon.
