Define Romance

 

Growing up with Disney I believed in fairy tales, Prince Charming, and happily ever after’s. Hearts and flowers defined romance for me. My daughter however, had a different view. She grew up loving horror movies, especially Resident Evil. Her idea of romance was marrying Leon and the two of them riding off into the sunset and taking out a horde of zombies along the way.

Throughout the years, my definition of romance has changed. In my twenties and early thirties, a romantic evening was one in which the kids went to bed early and my man and I curled up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn. When the kids were teenagers, date nights were a must and a weekend getaway even better to keep the romance fresh. Now that I’m a single empty nester, it’s back to Disney. Just like my youth, the only Prince Charming in my life is when I pull out old VHS tapes of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.

In my newest novel Romance Redefined Ben and Hugh have yet another definition of Romance. Problem is, Ben’s definition is the polar opposite of Hugh’s.

Blurb:

Opposites attract, but are some differences too drastic for a romance to survive?

On the surface, Benson Howard Winthrop III and Hugh Bayard have a lot in common: they’re young, handsome, and blessed to be one of the wealthiest couples in the country. Surely they have everything anyone could want. But Ben is no longer satisfied with their long-running relationship. Hugh’s need to control every situation is suffocating him, and Ben needs to know if he can make it on his own merits by following his passion.

But Ben’s mother isn’t about to let her son live in a rundown apartment as a struggling actor. She’s determined to get him back to his rightful place at the top of the social ladder—and back with Hugh.

Rekindling their romance will require more than doing what’s expected. Ben and Hugh need to understand and embrace each other’s differences. They’ll have to support each other even when one makes a decision the other doesn’t agree with. For their passionate love to grow, they will need to redefine the meaning of romance… only then can they find true happiness.

    My definition of romance when the person you love gives you want you need without you asking for it.
    They just know you so welll that they take care of your needs. It might not be grand gesture but it’s priceless.
