Check out the hot cover for the upcoming COUGARS AND CUBS Anthology!
There's just something about a story featuring an older woman and younger man...
And it is such a popular theme lately in lots of television shows - remember that tv show, 'Lipstick Jungle?' It was about three women who were lifelong friends. One of them had a steamy affair with a much younger man.
How about that popular tv show entitled, 'Cougar Town?' It featured Courtney Cox.
A well-known cruise line also featured a cruise specifically for 'cougars and cubs' this past December.
Perhaps age doesn't matter too much anymore. Maybe we're starting to see that women are at their prime when they reach that midpoint of their lives. We're more relaxed and confident, we know what we want...and don't want. We hear it all the time now - that 40 is the new 30 and 50 is the new forty. Women at the midpoint of their lives have more free time - our children are grown, we've got more time for ourselves. We have the chance to discover what WE want, not what society says. Besides, breaking convention can be fun...and downright sexy. It all depends on your point of view.
LUCKY IN LOVE by Catherine Chernow is part of the Cougars and Cubs anthology coming your way this May from Totalebound...
Here's a sneak peek:
Maddie Summers’ friends nicknamed her ‘Lucky.’ The scratch-off lottery tickets she gives them for their birthdays are winners. There’s only one place Maddie could use some of that good fortune – her love life. She’s at that midpoint of her life - 50 - with gray hairs and a few inches added to her waistline. When her husband left her for a younger woman, a part of her died but she bounced back, and now she’s ready for...what? Maddie isn’t sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life, but she’s determined not to let it slip by.
Her dormant hormones spring to life the day six-feet, four-inches of drop-dead gorgeous man moves in to the vacant house next to hers. He’s got her hot. He’s got her panting. There’s just one problem - he’s thirty-five.
Jake Conroy’s life changes the day he finds his sexy new neighbor standing on his doorstep. He’s not looking for love, he’s looking for a fresh start in a new town, with a new job. He never figured on meeting Maddie, an older woman with a new attitude.
Maddie is patient and forgiving, while most of Jake’s peers are not. Her family has raised eyebrows and his job isn’t working out. Is their cougar and cub relationship just a fling, or will they prove they are...
LUCKY IN LOVE.
