Did you ever wonder what happened to…The Prom Queen? The guy most likely to serve time in a federal prison? The couple voted most likely to succeed? If intrigued with the opportunity to rewrite a bit of history…or exact a little revenge…The Last Rose of Summer invites you to a reunion of The Class of ’85.
A little over a year ago, those words launched another series for one of the contemporary romance lines of The Wild Rose Press, Last Rose Of Summer.
Like it or not, what happens during our high school years shapes who we are at the time and who we will become in the future. And who among us hasn’t received an invitation to the event we either celebrate or dread—maybe both.
But, what fun to drop various characters—specifically a hero and a heroine—into whatever happened to scenarios. Then sit back and watch them struggle then triumph. All the flair and drama of reconnecting with former classmates with no fear of embarrassing ourselves.
For my part, I am fortunate to have created three titles to be included in the series.
Glad Tidings, released in December of 2010, is the story of forever friends and Summerville High alums Jake Holbrook and Bethany Thomas. A holiday release, Glad Tidings takes place between Halloween and Christmas Eve, after the Class of ’85 reunion.
In Next Tuesday at Two, released July 27, 2011, SHS grad Blane Weston views her Class of ’85 reunion as a chance to renew a former love. Matt Durand, a recent business acquaintance who won’t take no for an answer, has other plans for her on that particular week-end. He catches the same flight to wherever it is she happens to be going. But, imagine his surprise when he learns her destination holds memories and unfinished business for him.
In To Be, Or Not, release date December 7, 2011, far from having a score to settle, Barry Carlson, professional baseball’s former golden boy and the hero of To Be, Or Not, has some serious making up to do. The love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude of his youth has finally caught up with him and he’s eager to catch up on what’s important in life, someone to love who loves you back just as deeply. In Barry’s case, Amanda Marsh is The One who got away. And he has his work cut out for him if he hopes to win her back.
Three different couples from the Class of '85 each taking a very different journey to their own happily ever after.
