Well, you wouldn’t know it by the temperature as I write this, but it is technically summer. May often tempts us with hot, sunny weather, but it isn’t unusual for June in Northern BC to be cooler and rainier. Not unusual, but still disappointing!
This week on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop, we’re talking summer:
The official start of summer has begun and romance is in the air. What tales of summer love do any of your character have to share?
If you joined me from Leslie Hachtel, welcome!
I’m quite fascinated by how seasons can affect a storyline. A romantic day outside is completely different in summer than winter. In WHEN TIME FALLS STILL, Justice takes Charlotte to his cabin in the depths of winter. They cozy up next to a fireplace and take a trek across a frozen lake. Still romantic – but not the same as skinny-dipping on a hot August evening!
Tomorrow, Book Two in my Bendixon Sisters Series releases. GATEWAY CRESCENT takes place in late June and July. Luke is an outdoorsy kind of guy, although he doesn’t have a many opportunities to take advantage of the beautiful Northern BC region as he would like. In one scene, however, he takes Jo canoeing. In real life, the lake they explore is one of our favourites—Purden Lake. I won’t give any spoilers, but let’s just say the location is a powerful influence on their emotions on that day.
What do you think of when you think of summer love? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! Then be sure to hop over to A. S. Fenichel and see what her tale of summer love is.
