I want to welcome Cynthia Roberts to Books R Us. Cynthia is the Author of Wind Warrior. Thanks for stopping by.

Why Woman Adore Reading Romance

Romances were strictly written as prose starting as early as the 13th century.  But I think it’s pretty safe to say true romance began after Eve ate the apple in the Garden of Eden and ticked off Adam.  He had to do some real “wooing” back then to populate the world and according to scholars he lived to be 930 years old. 

It has become such an inherent part of our society that as little girls we fantasize about a Cinderella world, being carried off by Prince Charming and living happily ever after.  Our daddy’s revere us as their little princess at birth, treat us with tenderness, make us feel special and promise to always protect us.  Most every woman want a man in their life like their daddy with a little bit of bad boy mixed in. 

It’s what makes our heart go pitter-pat, our step lighter, our smile brighter, our day seem easier to cope with.  If it’s lacking in our lives, we make up for it escaping into a fictional world where the hero is all man and the woman is US.  It’s not the real world that’s true and as women we are nurturing, strong, independent, problem solvers, heads of businesses and multi-tasking managers of households.

We escape into genres filled with romance because while in that world we forget that the men in our lives are wired differently, come from Mars and forget we still need to be romanced even if the chase is over.
Wind Warrior will officially be released on June 15th and available now for purchase through Tate’s website.  It is my heartfelt hope readers will find it as enthralling to read as it was for me to research and bring to life.  Book #2 Captive Heart is finished and expected to be released the end of this year.

About the Book-

 Leslie Michaels is a visionary, and only those close to her know of her special gift and the visions that come when her mind and body surrender to sleep. Fate has a way of righting many wrongs, and for Leslie it is a destiny that changes her life dramatically. But not before she is forced to flee into the wilderness to escape a murderous trapper bent on claiming her for his very own. Faith and a strong will to survive are her only companions, until she encounters Winnokin, the handsome Seneca war chief who first came to her in her dreams. Not only does he prove to be her rescuer and protector, he teaches her that tragedy can breed happiness and the passion to live and love deeply once again. Wind Warrior plunges readers into the intimate depths of a relationship that unfolds like a live drama before their eyes while painting an insightful and intriguing portrait of Native Indian life in the 1800s. It is a story of longing, of a wanton need to survive all odds, and a love so strong it conquers human evil. Wind Warrior expresses with cunning words the simple, raw human emotions that hold readers spellbound and captivate their hearts.


 About the Author-

 I have been writing since a Crayola was placed in my hand. My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family and my passion later grew to taking up the pen and Wind Warrior was born.
"I wish I could have gotten to this point in my career much sooner rather than later but, life simply got in the way far too many times. I know because of those detours I have become a more passionate and expressive writer as I draw upon those painful moments in my past when I need to create the kind of raw emotion I want my readership to feel. What is it they say ... write what you know? Well, I have been there and lived what many will never experience in a life time.
My wish is that my audience walk away with not only an entertaining read but a sense of comfort in knowing that whatever is going on in their lives there truly will be a rainbow at the end of their journey. Even if the road in life you are forced to travel is more trying than others and your prayers seem to go unanswered, faith is knowing one of two things will happen ... you will either allow the darkness to engulf you or you will learn how to soar like an eagle."
