I can't remember a time I didn't love weddings. Everything about them: the dress, the flowers, the promise of happily ever after. It''s one of the reasons I read and write romance. Who doesn't love a happy ending? That's not to say the road to wedded bliss is an easy one. But doesn't that make the happily ever after all the more satisfying?So it's no surprise that my new series, White Lace and Promises, focuses on exactly that. Book Two, The Lieutenant's Bride, Katie and Nolan's story, released this week. I'm happy to say, it never gets old. It was just as thrilling this time, with my seventh published book, as it was when my first book was published.
Some people ask me, why romance? Especially now, with so much going on in the world. Why write lighthearted stories about love, and family, friendship and small town life? I think that is exactly when we should be reading romance. I always found escaping into a world where love triumphs, where families and communities pull together, where people grow and heal, to be inspirational. Yes, we know going in that life isn’t perfect, that things don’t always work out. But I think the real value in romance is the affirmation that it can and for a “brief, shining moment,” like the lyrics from Camelot promise, we get our happily ever after.
The Lieutenant's Bride is available at Amazon and is free in Kindle Unlimited.
