So this week I’ve got the pleasure of welcoming author Mary Sue Wehr to Watch Out. Welcome Mary…it is lovely to have you here in the naughty WO chair….
Thank you, Savannah for having me as your guest today.
I grew up with four brothers so the battle for who got to watch television was lost before it even began. Declaring defeat, I’d go to my room and curl up with a romance novel. I never lost my passion for reading. I may have graduated from sweet romance to erotic, but my love for a good book will never change. I do have my favorite authors. You know the ones you look for when you visit a book store or shop online. But if a hot sexy cover catches my eye you can be sure that I’ll be checking it out.
After I married the thought of writing a romance of my own had crossed my mind a time or two, but the fear of rejection held me back so I shelved the idea. Now that I’m older that fear doesn’t bother me as much as it did years ago.
I finished my first novel, ‘Kudos to Stilettos’ two years ago and it was rejected by two publishers. Yes, I was disappointed, but ‘A Heart’s Endeavor’ was already coming together for me before I ever received the rejection letters. My characters are forty- something mostly because it’swhat I can relate to. Besides, young people don’t havesex and romance doesn’t have to be enjoyed only by young people.
accomplished my dream with ‘A Heart’s Endeavor’ and now another story is floating around in my head. Beachwalkpress is my publisher and I hope I get to go through this ‘writing my own romance’ all over again.
I hope you enjoy Jack and Melanie’s story.
Barnes and Noble:
There are times when it’s best to allow your heart to overrule your head.
Being diagnosed with depression not only messed up Melanie Manning’s life, but her marriage as well. Her husband made it very clear that he considered her “damaged goods” and he didn’t have time to coddle a mentally ill wife. After his sudden death, Melanie knew she was destined to be alone. Loneliness sounded a hell of a lot better than exposing her illness to another man. Her self-esteem couldn’t survive another blow.
When state trooper Jack Horan meets Melanie, the attraction is immediate. Her deep blue eyes make him weak in the knees, but those eyes also hold a hint of sadness. Jack is determined to wipe away her pain, but how can he do that when Melanie refuses to let him get close to her?
Can Melanie learn to face her fears and trust her heart in the hands of another man?
