Ride the Churning, Restless Rapids of a Second Chance at Love

What a rich and deep adult contemporary romance!

Kaye is in her late twenties and still in love with her childhood friend / ex-husband Samuel (even though it's hard for "stubborn as super glue" Kaye to admit she still holds the candle for him). Kaye is an extreme sports enthusiast, and she and her friend run a PR firm in Colorado. Meanwhile, since the divorce, Samuel has shot up the bestseller charts as a famous author.

Samuel comes from a boisterous Hispanic family, and his sister Danita is about to get married. Naturally, Kaye is Danita's maid of honor, and naturally, Samuel will be in town for the big wedding. Though Kaye and Samuel divorced six years ago, is it possi…

New Release: Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney

Title:Compromising Positions Author:Mary Whitney Genre: Women’s Fiction Publication Date: January 28, 2014 Cover Design:R. Doyle from Literati Author Services, Inc. Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.
Synopsis
We weren’t supposed to be friends. We weren’t even supposed to like each other. I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat. She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, and one big issue that divides us. All of this is going to land us in more than one compromising position. And like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.

Do you wish you could write faster? I do! I'm about 1/3 done with my work-in-progress, a New Adult volleyball romance titled Blocked.

The story features the daughter of the Republican nominee for president and the son of the Democratic nominee for president. They both play varsity volleyball at a Midwestern university, and naturally, they hate each other. They think the opposing political viewpoint is idiotic and hurtful.

Ah, but that's where the fun begins. Can love bloom among such differences?

There's a new book launching by a famous cross-political couple Mary Matalin and James Carville:



So I guess they can make it work! I watched an interview with the couple, and when asked how she tolerates her husband's liberal politics, Mary Matalin said "Hate the sin, love the sinner." Then she kissed his bald head!

In your writing, do you explore politics? Do you p…
