New Romance Novel “FINDING NICHOLAS” Tackles Growing Problem Amongst Middle-aged Women

New Romance Novel “FINDING NICHOLAS” Tackles Growing Problem Amongst Middle-aged Women

Stone Cottage Books has released another no-holds-barred contemporary romance novella entitled “Finding Nicholas.” This multicultural romance, which takes place in Old San Juan, is unique in that the heroine is middle-aged -- and she’s flawed. 

Brianna Brennan’s disease is alcoholism, and it is affecting a growing number of middle-aged women across the United States.

Contemporary Romance Tackling Contemporary Issues

According to Cassandra Black, co-author, and owner of Stone Cottage Books, “I’m a strong believer in the notion that contemporary romance stories should tackle contemporary issues, and “Finding Nicholas” does that. But the novella tackles the sensitive topic in a way that does not compromise the expected romance formula -- damsel in distress being rescued by a strong, compassionate, sexy hero.”

The book also offers a subplot that showcases the handsome hero, Nicholas San Rios, who has a curious past; one that could either alienate Brianna, or give the pair a chance at a relationship that could lead to happily ever after. See http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S35MIKE


Alarming Statistics:  Middle-aged Women and Alcohol

According to a recent headline in the New York Daily News (Binge Drinking Most Likely to Kill Middle-aged Americans), “Six Americans die from alcohol poisoning every day, a new CDC study said. Three out of four of those people are between ages 35 and 64.”

Per Everyday Health, the study also concluded, “The number of women in their 40′s and 50′s who are drinking too much is climbing …”

There are several factors leading to the rise in alcohol assumption by middle-aged women. One theory is “women slide from happiness highs in their early twenties to their lowest point in their 40’s.”

See “What’s Wrong with Middle-Aged Women?” an editorial on noted author Caroline Adams Miller’s (MAAP) website at http://www.carolinemiller.com/whats-wrong-with-middle-aged-women/ that discusses the research phenomena known as the U-Shaped Curve.

Second Work by Author Duo

“Finding Nicholas” is the second multicultural romance book by the Cassandra Black and Gin Adams author pair. Their first novella, “Lunch Mates: Sex and the Work Week,” a short, steamy contemporary romance, was recently released on Amazon in Kindle format. See http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S8XRRM0.

BOOK EXCERPT: 



... The next morning I dressed very carefully. Sexy silk panties and matching black lace bra. Garter belt hose. Tight rayon shift in canary yellow, the one with the plunging neckline, the slit up the side. Five inch fuckme heels. I spent an hour on my hair. And ten minutes deciding on a scent. I fussed until I looked damn good. 



My boss was going to be out all morning, otherwise I would have worn something more subtle. 



I got looks from the boys in shipping. And the boss’s personal assistant made a wow face and gave a low whistle when I walked past her desk. 



“Monica, girl, you look awesome. You lose weight?” 



"I wish." 



My mind wasn't on my work or anywhere near it, so the morning plodded. I could only handle so much. A few simple redesigns for the new website, form responses to a slew of old, unimportant emails. Stuff I usually did on the weekend or late at night when I only needed half a brain. Right now, that was all I had. 



At eleven-forty, I stood up and headed for the door, my purse under my arm. My heart drummed in my ears. My mouth was full of dust. I reminded myself that I needed this, that I needed a lusty afternoon with an attractive stranger. I’d been dry way too long ...

Just logging off. Double-digit hours again ... pooped!

Hope your day was good! Just logging off. Double-digit hours again. Lots done; still lots to do. 

Zausted! 

Now a lil' CNN and bedtime. Uh-oh. Just realized I TOTALLY forgot to water the plants on my balcony today. Sorry babies -- yes; I talk to them. If I go out there now, those little Caribbean "no see-ums" (bugs!) will fly right into my apt. 

Tomorrow, tomorrow. Pooped. 

Have a great night, and thank you for stopping by my author blog. 

Cassandra
