Today is the second blog post for my Dragonfly Moments birthday tour. I'm very grateful to Robin Alexander for hosting me on her wonderful new blog for sweet and clean romance. We need more blogs like hers.
I’m excited to announce that my dragonfly swag gifts have been made. I spent the whole of yesterday watching movies and making them. What a fun day it was!
Dragonfly Moments was my first novel with Decadent Publishing. It came out in May 2013 so I’m celebrating my first book with the Ubuntu Line. The Ubuntu Line is about African stories. I also love that yesterday was Freedom Day here in South Africa. We have a public holiday (or bank holiday as you may call it) here today because of Freedom Day. That’s the day when Apartheid was broken down – the day we all went to vote – the day when black people were allowed to vote, too. Somehow, I don’t remember that day so much. The day I remember was in 1994, when the white people were asked to go to the polling stations to vote “yes” or “no.” We had to decide whether we wanted the blacks to be given freedom to vote or not. “Yes” obviously meant “yes.” Thank God it was an overwhelming “yes.” Our country was steeped in injustice, violence was simmering beneath the surface and I had encountered it first hand, and everything was just not right. I’ll never forget that day for as long as I live.
Seven years earlier, a young and serious Tessa Calitz wrote a letter to free spirit Ryan le Roux promising her undying love. As time passed she forgot about that letter...but Ryan did not.
When he walks back into her life, Tessa is in a relationship and busy setting up her art gallery in Johannesburg. She has plans to start a family, and the arrival of Ryan throws her for a spin. He is the worst thing that could happen to her dream of stability...or is he?
When everything she clung to starts to crumble, Ryan is right beside her to inspire her to greater things. But her compulsion for having marriage and children on her terms alone pushes Ryan away--until she falls in love with an orphaned baby.
What can Ryan do to make Tessa realize that being with him is what her heart has longed for all along?
