In The Sweet Touch the heroine, Kate Bromley, is a nutritionist and triathlon competitor. I feel connected to her story through my own love of the outdoors and keeping fit plus my enjoyment in creating tasty vegetarian dishes.
Each chapter ends with a healthy vegetarian recipe which I researched and experimented with in my kitchen. Of course I have my favorites – the mock tuna salad and the chocolate pudding are at the top of my list.
When nutritionist and triathlon competitor Kate Bromley meets single dad and owner of steak restaurants, Dan Brookhouse, at a mall where she’s demonstrating how to make a healthy chocolate pudding, she is determined to keep her distance. After an early disastrous marriage she enjoys her freedom too much. Dan is determined to have Kate demonstrate her desserts to his chefs.
Besides being immediately attracted to her, he’s a chocoholic. Can Kate keep her hard-won freedom and still have a relationship with Dan? Will Dan’s hyperactive young son be too stressful for Kate to handle?
Excerpt from The Sweet Touch
I’ve been a professional artist for most of my working life, first as a commercial artist, later teaching art to children and adults and then as Assistant Director of Art at the Stamford Museum, in Stamford, Ct. I’ve shown my work in galleries in Ct., N.Y. and Florida and am a member of several professional organizations. At the same time I’ve always wanted to write. My attempts never came to fruition until I joined Romance Writers of America and my local chapter. Attending chapter meetings I learned the craft of romance writing. My first published work appeared in True Confessions and True Story magazines. I also published two novellas with Extasy Books. After many attempts I wrote a full-length novel, a contemporary romantic comedy, “A Total Mismatch” and signed a contract with Soul Mate Publishing. The book was released in November, 2017 as an e-book and later in print. My second book for Soul Mate, “The Sweet Touch”, is a contemporary romance released in September 2019 as an e-book and later in print. I am working on a third contemporary romance, “Dream With Me” and am enjoying the process. Connect with me here: Website Soul Mate Publishing
