As I was putting together some PR material for my Big Sky Maverick book MONTANA MAVERICK, it struck me that I didn’t know whether or not to mention the age of my main protagonists: 39 and 48.
Their age is important to the story. They’ve both reached pivotal places in their individual journeys and any decision on whether or not to act on the attraction they’ve always felt for each other comes with significant gravity and the re-imagining of certain truths and dreams each holds dear.
Don’t you agree that the decisions you made at 21, 25…even 30…were handled differently than the thought process you brought to the table ten years later? Does the idea of an older–more experienced–hero and heroine put you off or would you welcome the chance to experience their second-chance-at-love a bit further down the road of life?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
If you’re a fan of older heroes and heroines, I think you’ll enjoy Meg and Hank’s book (and you can catch up with them later in MONTANA MIRACLE).

Also, look for BLACK HILLS RENDEZVOUS!
The last thing Cade Garrity expected when he went to Sentinel Pass to meet Jessie Bouchard—a prospective, short-term tenant willing to trade a little childcare in return for a discounted rent—was to save her life. But the video her twin sister, Remy, shot doesn’t lie. And the fact that the nutcase who booby-trapped Jessie’s stunt is still on the loose makes it impossible for Cade to turn his back on her. But Cade married a woman who put satisfying her need for excitement ahead of her family–ahead of him–and it killed her. He’s not going down that road again no matter how much he desires Jessie Bouchard.
Despite what people think, Jessie does not have a death wish. She learned at a young age the only way to handle pain and fear was to face it head on. That’s what she does. And she’s convinced herself that living for the moment is enough–until she meets Cade and his daughter, Shiloh. There may be more to life than that next death-defying stunt, but does she deserve the kind of life Cade has to offer? She isn’t sure, and unless she finds the person who is trying to kill her, she won’t get a chance to answer that question.

In other good news, I’m excited to tell you I’ve gotten my rights back to “missing” story in this 9-book series. That book, newly titled BLACK HILLS NATIVE SON, will be coming in mid-September.
