Hero John Moretti—really, he’s the patriarch of the series—first appears in the pre-prequel novella, Before the Bond, as a man in his early thirties. In that story, we see some mistakes he makes in love, mistakes with consequences that will resonate throughout his life.
But this is romance, so in A Christmas Bond, John finds true love. It’s a sweet holiday novella that kicks off the Sacred Bond series. Here’s the blurb:
When an old woman’s Baby Jesus is stolen from her lawn crèche, a handsome, jaded veteran and a beautiful crime victim must overcome their differences to help her, finding love in the process.
John starts a school for troubled boys, the Covenant School. There, the men who become the Sacred Bond brotherhood meet and, under John’s guidance, vow to protect the weak throughout their lives. John is a presence in most of their stories as they mature, become heroes themselves, and find love.
It’s nice when people marry their first loves and live happily ever after, but let’s face it, that’s not the reality for everyone. John Moretti has ups and downs in his life, and at sixty-one, he’s single again, recovering from health problems, raising a foster son, and, yes, finding love again. That’s the story of A Harvest Bond.
I’m so eager to see how people react to this “silver fox romance” that I’m offering it for 99 cents through October 8th,
when it’ll go up to its normal price of $2.99. And if you want to learn how the whole story started–when the silver fox was a young man–sign up for my newsletter, and you’ll get the short story for free.
So what do you think of romance across the lifespan? Of a romance novella that features an older hero and heroine?
