Synopsis

Dare to Love by Penny Dixon

Josi's finally got her life sorted. Her children have flown the nest, she has a successful business and she's just married her other half of eleven years - stable, dependable Richard, a partner in a highly respected accountancy practice. At 50, she's where she wants to be: in a lovely cottage in Derbyshire, with an attractive body and a future with the man who loves her. Then a secret from Richard's past shatters her dreams. She seeks the company of the only person she feels she can confide in. Celia welcomes her back to Barbados. Away from the grey of England and the pressure of her cottage, she finally opens to her friend. In her raw, vulnerable state she meets Grant, the smooth Guyanese with eyes that see through her, hands that soothe and excite her, and a body that can't hide its feelings for her. Socially they are worlds apart. There's so much that Grant has to hide and so many things that could take him under, but there's something that pulls them together - something that threatens to blow their worlds apart and change them forever. They have a chance of happiness together - but can they risk taking it? Dare to Love is a romance with an erotic twist that will appeal to anyone who has ever been in love, or want to be in love. It will also appeal to readers with an interest in the Caribbean as it addresses many issues of the region. Author Penny has been inspired by a number of authors, including Terry McMillan, Eric Jerome Dickey, Zane, Fiona Zedde and Colin Channer. `The book is essentially about how people face extreme challenges and how we bend the rules to suit our situation. Ultimately, we all want love and recognition,' says Penny, on the motivation to write her novel.
