#WriteWed In Search of the Older Heroine

TO CATCH HER MANAs I grow older, I’m always tempted to write a story about an older heroine – a woman in her forties or more who has had life experiences such as having children, ending a marriage, changing careers and most importantly, finding love again.

I am, after all, a hopeless romantic. In TO CATCH HER MAN, Tori’s mom Virginia and her ex-husband Pablo are on the way to finding love again. I’ve been toying with the idea of writing their story, showing how they first met and what happens after they find each other again.

What do you think? Would you be interested in a story with an older heroine?

#ManCandyMonday Joe from ROOKIE OF THE YEAR #99cents #SportsRomance

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a great day! Today’s Man Candy is Joe Fernandez from ROOKIE OF THE YEAR. I love baseball and it was such fun to write a story that gave New Jersey it’s own Major League Baseball team.

I also loved that this was a story about an older professional woman, Alicia the trainer, and how she deals with falling in love with a younger man.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR is specially priced at 99 cents until the end of this week. The sequel, A WINNING SEASON, will be out before the end of the year.

#FreebieFriday Rookie of the Year

RookieoftheYearHoping the Mets can come back from the brink tonight! If you like the Boys of Summer as much as I do, score a free copy of ROOKIE OF THE YEAR by going to this link: http://www.instafreebie.com/free/j7l1p

All I ask is that you leave an honest review of the book. Here is a little blurb for it.

If you like sports romances with sexy baseball heroes, you’ll love the heat and emotion in Rookie of the Year!

Alicia Santos knows she shouldn’t be tempted by the team’s new rookie catcher. . .

But Joe Fernandez isn’t just your average baseball player. He’s a potential rookie of the year with amazing skills on the field. Smart, sexy and determined, he’s fought hard for everything in his life and Alicia appreciates that kind of focus. But she’s older and wiser, or so she thinks, until Joe sets his sights on winning her over off the field. . .

Joe Fernandez has never backed down from a challenge . . .

Especially when it’s a woman like his team’s beautiful trainer. He doesn’t mind that she’s older or stubbornly refusing to give into her attraction for him. He’s a patient man and little by little he wears away her resistance.

Nights spent together are glorious and forbidden . . .

Alicia and Joe work hard to keep their personal and professional lives apart to avoid problems on the baseball field. When a career-ending injury threatens their newfound love, Alicia and Joe must find the strength to rebuild Joe’s body and restore balance to their lives.

Thanks and have a great weekend.

#ManCandyMonday In search of the older hero

When I wrote TO CATCH HER MAN, I knew that the heroine’s mother, Virginia, needed a story of her own. In fact, the original version of the book had a lot more scenes in which Virginia meets sexy Pablo Amenabar, but they were deleted during the editing process.

Despite that, I loved giving Virginia a little bit of romance in that book and I do plan to eventually write her story as well as finish off Adriana and Juliana’s stories. Maybe when I have more writing time.

My question for you today, on Man Candy Monday, is: Would you like to see a story with an older hero and heroine? A “mom-lit” story with forty and fiftyish characters?

For now, here is how I pictured Pablo and Virginia!

#FreebieFriday TAMING THE BACHELOR Contemporary Romance

Taming the BachelorGood morning! We’re finally having some warmer weather and I can’t wait for spring and summer to be here. My upcoming April 1 re-release, TAMING THE BACHELOR, is a contemporary romance set along the Jersey Shore during the summer. It’s specially priced for 99 cents until April 15.

This book is also part of the Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Box Set which releases on April 15. The boxset is specially priced at 2.99 as well! That’s just 99 cents per novel.

Here’s a little bit more about TAMING THE BACHELOR and a little something special for you! Leave a comment on this blog and if you’re one of the first 30 comments, I’ll send you an e-copy of TAMING THE BACHELOR.


Romantic Times – 4 Stars: “Daisy Ramos is a gorgeous genius who works with her equally gorgeous partner Brad Evans. But Brad is a known bachelor and Daisy has her doubts whether he will ever give up being a bachelor for her or anyone else. Can Brad convince Daisy that he is ready to get serious and that he wants to share his life with her and only her? . . . enticing sensual tale.”

Affaire de Coeur: “(E)ven more charm than its predecessor. . . Worth picking up!”


Brad Evans doesn’t understand why a woman like Daisy Ramos would be interested in a guy like him. . .

She’s the first woman who’s ever made him consider giving up his beloved bachelorhood, but falling for her presents all kinds of problems. For starters, she’s one of his partners in a successful biotech company. But worse, she’s the kind of woman who will drive a man to distraction and Brad’s not sure he can risk losing his focus or his heart to Daisy. But he can’t ignore that whenever she walks into a room, he wishes things could be different between them.

Daisy doesn’t believe that a confirmed bachelor and beach dude like Brad will ever walk down the aisle . . .

Especially not with a woman like her. She’s known Brad for years and knows he’s never serious about anything. He flits from one woman to another and spends his free time playing volleyball on the beach. He’s not a forever kind of guy and her determined workaholic mind warns her that he’s absolutely the wrong man for her, but her heart says something else.
