Welcome to the Secret Cravings Contemporary Blog hop! Lots of wonderful authors are participating, all with prizes to give away!

What makes a romance “contemporary”? Does that just mean that it is taking place in the present day and time? The dictionary says:

con·tem·po·rar·y
[kuhn-tem-puh-rer-ee] Show IPA adjective, noun, plural con·tem·po·rar·ies.
adjective
1.existing, occurring, or living at the same time; belonging to the same time: Newton’s discovery of the calculus was contemporary with that of Leibniz.
2.of about the same age or date: a Georgian table with a contemporary wig stand.
3.of the present time; modern: a lecture on the contemporary novel.
noun
4.a person belonging to the same time or period with another or others.
5.a person of the same age as another.

Contemporary romance novels combine a lot of these elements. They take place in the present. They are often about characters we feel are “contemporaries”. But I think they also need to be relevant to issues that we find “contemporary”.

It great romance novel will draw you into the story. Allow you to make parallels to your own life, or the life of someone you know. Are you a single mother? A widow? A young person looking for the one person to be your soul mate?

I hope when you read my books you find a little bit of yourself in them. There is definitely a little bit of ME in all my stories.

My latest release, Roping Love
RopingLove_LRG(1)

Shows you a glimpse of my childhood. I showed Quarter horses from the time I was ten until about 16. I participated in the All American Quarter Horse Congress. And I had a horse named Hercules.

Blurb:

Ten Years ago love slipped through Chance’s lasso. This time “He was going after her and she didn’t stand a chance, just like a calf in a chute, he was going to rope her with his love and ride back into her life.”
Carrie Stewart is a dedicated horsewoman. She runs a successful breeding and training program. She is a good friend, a good sister and a favorite aunt, but she has been burned by love. Carrie has never gotten over her first love, Chance Ryan. After ten years of absence Chance shows back up in her life. Should she risk her heart again, with the man who left it broken at her feet in the past? Chance has some serious work ahead of him to win back the one woman he could never forget
