“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
In the past few weeks, I’ve read several posts (and commented on some) about the lack of Romance novels (or many genre for that matter) featuring women over 30. No matter who the novels are targeted at, there seems to be a true absence of heroines who are beyond their 20’s. Now I’m going to read any novel that catches my eye, no matter the age of the main characters. But the conversation has gotten me thinking and more aware of the novels that I’m picking up lately. (Yes, I am over 30).
So my pick today is a Romance (not a true cougar romance, but an age difference) where the Heroine is not a sweet, young thing but a mature woman who wasn’t looking for love, but wasn’t too afraid to take a chance.
When newly divorced Kate Adams is approached on the sunny deck of a California hotel by hockey star David Burke, and he invites her to dinner, she almost says no. He’s obviously younger than her. And charming. And drop dead gorgeous. But there’s also something sweet about David, so Kate—who hasn’t done anything spontaneous in a very long time—accepts his invitation.
It is, after all, her fortieth birthday.
However, a real romance with thirty-year-old David, whose picture is in the gossip pages as often as it’s in the sports pages, is out of the question. No matter how much she wants him, it’s just too risky.
But meeting Kate has been David’s lightning strike. She’s the one for him, and he has no intention of giving up on her.
So while Kate guards her fragile heart, David sets out to win her over with the same determination that drives him on the ice.
And he’ll break every rule in the book if he has to.
No warlocks, no time travel, no mystery – just a good old fashioned love story. Available late March 2015 – this week I’m looking forward to love at any age.
