Love and the Economy by Carolyn Gibbs

Coffee with ColetteGood morning, dear readers! This week on Coffee with Colette, fellow Secret Cravings Publishing author Carolyn Gibbs has dropped by to tell you about her contemporary romance, Love and the Economy I have already read this timely novella and can give it an enthusiastic endorsement. I hope you'll check it out as well!

Hello Everyone! First, I’d like to thank Colette for hosting me on her blog. I got the idea to write my novella Love and the Economy after viewing news stories about separating couples who were caught in the housing bubble, and couldn’t sell their houses and couldn’t afford to live in two households. I thought the premise of a divorced couple, forced to live together, would make an interesting romance story. My hero Daren was struggling to build an architecture firm and taking care of his growing family. His ex-wife Andrea, a web designer, is trying to move on with her life and has just begun dating again when she learns that Daren will be moving back home.

About Love and the Economy

Just when Andrea Elliot thought life was getting back to normal after the divorce, her ex, Daren is moving back home. While the ink on their divorce papers dried up, so did the U.S. economy, and Daren’s architecture firm. Since Daren can’t afford to support two households and a floundering business, his accountant advises the couple live together in the family home – just till the economy improves. This couldn’t have happened at a worse time for Andrea. She's just started to date again.

Daren still loves Andrea, and sees their new living arrangement as his opportunity to make things right. Once home he takes off his suit and puts on his work clothes, and gets busy re-building his reputation and his ex-wife’s home office. Can Daren see what Andrea desires, and be the present take-charge man she’s always needed, and can Andrea put her pride away and let him?

  3. Very romantic story--is it my imagination or is the heroine on the cover a self portrait? :) Meredith
