This story is set in Greenwich United Kingdom. The heroine is 48 years old and the hero is 55. I wanted to write a story with an older man and woman since it seems like most romantic heroes and heroines are in their twenties or thirties.
It was a fun one to write since I was able to focus on some things that aren't usually focused on. The heroine has been a widow for a period of time and she hasn't been sexually active in a while. Her body issues are the thing that seems to be holding her back. She can hardly believe this man she meets in the park would want to be with her after all. She's had surgery and is concerned about the scar on her abdomen.
What do you think about older heroes and heroines and the issues they face? Would you want to read a book with older characters?

Antoinette Blake, an American in England on a visit to her adult daughter, takes the “grand-dog” for a walk in the park. While there, she meets a British actor she’s had a crush on forever. She owns all his movies and has fantasized about meeting him.
Adam Knowles is as charming as Antoinette always imagined he’d be and she’s delighted when he asks to spend the afternoon with her. The more she gets to know him, the more she likes him but in the back of her mind is the fact that even though he’s over fifty and she’s in her forties, he has his pick of young actresses to be his companion.
Her insecurities with her body and her age threaten to mar a splendid day. One she’d only dreamt could come true.
