Jill Blakeabout this book: You know the construct: boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. That's what every romance is about, right?
I don't think so.
For me, the contemporary romance novel is a slice-of-life story. It's about family. It's about relationships between parents and children, siblings, friends. It's about career and self-discovery. And yes, it's also about love, and how love grows between two people over time—-with all the fits and starts and obstacles that make life interesting.
Pursued by the Playboy is the first book in my Doctors of Rittenhouse Square Trilogy. At heart, it is a novel about family, and overcoming the scars left over from a dysfunctional childhood.
Kate grows up witnessing her parent's war-zone of a marriage. The last thing she wants is anything that reminds her of that childhood. So, no husband, no children, no long-term relationships.
Marc, on the other hand, has a loving, close-knit family, complete with parents and siblings who aren't averse to meddling in his life (for his own good, of course).
Toss in the final unravelling of a marriage (Kate's parents'), an unexpected pregnancy (or two), a colorful array of secondary characters, and you have the basic ingredients for Kate and Mark's slice-of-life romance, Pursued by the Playboy.
The books in the Doctors of Rittenhouse Square series can be read as stand-alones, and are all available for download on Amazon. Enjoy!
