Body and Soul

A raised eyebrow and a knowing smile is the response I get when I tell people my next book is the love story between an older woman and a younger man. The possibilities inherent in that combination are both delicious and potentially explosive.

In BODY AND SOUL my second novel published by Pinnacle books, Toinette Blue is the older woman. Robinson Mayview checks in as the younger man Toinette finds herself attracted to despite their differences. Toinette is forty-seven with five grown children and five grandchildren. Robinson is thirty-four and has never been married.

Toinette and Robinson's story is more than a romance. It's a journey through life's trials and tribulations. While Toinette struggles to get over the fact that she's been deserted by her husband, she has to contend with a son who hates Robinson for a lot of good reasons, another child who is having trouble in college, and a controversy at the center where she works as the director of an employment program. In the midst of all this is Robinson and his steadfast pursuit of the woman he knows is the one he was meant to be with.

If Toinette and Robinson sound vaguely familiar to you, it's because they are the best friends of Kendra and Malcolm, the hero and heroine of For The Love Of You, my first book.

Even as I was writing For The Love Of You, Nettie and Robinson kept telling me that they wanted their romance told. In your cards and letters, a lot of you told me the same thing. BODY AND SOUL is the story you've asked for.

I wish you peace and a romance that brings you joy-body and soul.
