Romance in Stories

 

Every one of my novels features a romance within the storyline. However, I would not classify my books as romance. Instead, I'd prefer the term relationship fiction.

 

Indeed, the romances in my novels are relationships, but they are not your typical love stories. They are complex, intricate, and often challenging, reflecting the depth and richness of human connections.

 

In my upcoming book, Soul Tie, the protagonist, Tamara Castellan, finds herself attracted to coworker Gil Payne despite being relatively newly married. However, her attraction is not a standalone event but a symptom of something deeply amiss in the marriage. Her federal judge husband, Blaine, is critical and controlling due to an unnatural preoccupation with the memory of his deceased first wife. Because her marriage is such a train wreck, Tamara's emotional deprivation leaves her wide open to an attraction to another man--a far better one.

 

In Curandero, the story begins with Samantha's engagement to her fiancé, Richard, and everything seems to be going well. But when Samantha befriends terminally ill Stefan, the red flags between her and Richard become obvious. As Stefan's health unexpectedly improves, Samantha's attraction to Richard wanes as her interest in Stefan deepens.

 

In The Keeper, doctor Chris Seacrest is dating Buffy, a beautiful socialite. But before long, he finds himself attracted to Caitlin, a young woman recovering from a stroke with whom he has little in common. Something isn't right with the doctor, and his interest in Caitlin links him back to an earlier time when his life wasn't a covert catastrophe.

 

In Connections: Five Stories Celebrating Renewal & Redemption, each story is a romance set within some other sort of problem, such as substance abuse (Golden Boy & Reflections), societal incompatibility (A Touch of Evil), illness (Hardship House), or even supernatural forces (The Lake).

In every romance, a mysterious connection forms seemingly out of nowhere. However, the bond is unmistakable, enabling the relationship's transformative power to blossom and reach its deepest potential.
