#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!

Behind the Scenes of NOW AND ALWAYS

My latest release, NOW AND ALWAYS, is set in Miami. As a kid, we always went to Miami in August to visit family and friends. It used to be a fun road trip as we made our way from New York, down the East Coast and eventually to Miami. We used to stay in South Beach back then, not because it was trendy, but because it was inexpensive. At one point we stopped staying there as the area had gotten too bad.

It’s nice to see South Beach revived to its Art Deco splendor. I was lucky enough to revisit South Beach a few years back and here are some of the photos from Ocean Drive and the South Beach area. In NOW AND ALWAYS, Connie gets an apartment in this area while she goes undercover and fights her attraction to sexy physician Victor.

This is a view of the beach from Lummus Park. The brightly colored lifeguard stands are a staple of the Miami Beaches.

South Beach Lummus Park

There are quite a number of glamorous hotels in South Beach. This is the pool area at the Loew’s Hotel. Lovely place right near Lincoln Drive. For those who read KISSED BY A VAMPIRE, lots of action in that book happens along Lincoln Drive, a pedestrian mall lined by restaurants, clubs, and stores.

The smaller and older hotels are famous for their Art Deco style and neon. The neon throws its color into the tropical night, making it come alive.
