Losing my job a few years ago led to the realization of a life long dream for me.
Honorable Intentions was my first contemporary romance. Published by The Wild Rose Press. The book came about when I was abruptly downsized from a public relations position I’d held for over three decades. Unable to find another job, and a recent empty nester, I had a lot of free time on my hands. Time I filled doing what I love-writing romantic fiction. When one door closes another one opens is an adage I firmly believe in, much like the main characters of Honorable Intentions.
Cop turned personal security agent Samantha Wells and Alaska conservation officer turned environmentalist Chase Canfield are burned out from the demands of high stress careers. Each also struggles with contentious family issues and relationships. Resigned to lives of little reward and even less happiness when they meet, Chase and Samantha begin to rediscover and reap the rewards of everyday values and, most importantly, love. Their story takes place on a luxury cruise to Alaska. Think Father Knows Best meets Anna and The King.
Former cop Samantha Wells is the last person single father Chase Canfield wants to chaperone his impressionable teenaged daughter. Not if she’s the same beautiful stranger who shamelessly came on to him when they first met. Samantha must prove she’s a competent, trustworthy professional. That the sultry seductress he knows was only a pretense, her misguided alter ego acting on a stupid dare. To save her reputation, she has to make him believe the undeniable connection they shared meant nothing. The hard part will be to convince herself first.
For me, writing Honorable Intentions was a joy. A definite Up Side of my life that may never have happened if not for being Down Sized.
