Delilah Steele was living the high life. She had a high-powered job, a man she loved and nothing was holding her back. When her world, and her trust, was irrevocably shattered by the man she loved, Delilah had no choice but to return to the town she grew up in – and couldn’t wait to leave. There, she goes to work for Aiden Dean, a handsome heartbreaker who seems to have his eye on Delilah. When Delilah’s long-absent father arrives on the scene, she has to figure out how to cope with his presence and desire to be a part of her life. Now Delilah has to learn how to live – and love – all over again. Will her hard knocks past continue to haunt her, or will Aiden break through her tough exterior and show her that forever can be a good thing?
The Gamma Male, or, Why I Write Romance
There are two schools of thought on romance.
The first one says we’re supposed to want it. We grow up planning our weddings and watching Disney princesses marry their prince. We want a man who will listen, anticipate our needs and understand us.
The second school of thought says that women don’t need men, that we shouldn’t love Disney movies and wait around for our prince. That we’re perfectly able to take care of ourselves.
I think they’re both right.
I say there’s nothing wrong with wanting a happily-ever-after. As adult women, we’re capable of telling reality from fiction. We know what is and isn’t a reasonable expectation from the male population. And that’s where fiction comes in.
I write the hero that every woman wants. I write the Gamma male; he’s smart, sexy, sensitive, and he rides a Harley. He is the best of both worlds - a provider, a little possessive, supportive. Everything a girl could want.
Romance, to me, is essential to daily life. I crave the happily-ever-after in everything I read, write and watch. I write it to fulfill my need for it. Every story I write – unless I’m writing for a call for submissions – has a happy ending. My hero and heroine – or hero and hero, depending on the story – have their happily-ever-after. I have epilogues written, tucked away in secret files on my computer.
Because I need it. I need my Gamma male. I need his reassurance, his love, his six-pack abs. I write romance because it makes me happy.
