About this product
- DescriptionRomance, drama, suspense and action all rolled into one! A GRIPPING ROMANTIC SUSPENSE! Set in The Bahamas and Scotland, with scenes in London, Devon, Fort Lauderdale and New York. LOVE AT SUNSET shows the determination of Violet and Gordon, a feisty older couple in love for the second time around, to enjoy their autumn years to the fullest. Faced with fierce opposition from their children and possible payback from an armed robber, they flee The Bahamas for a loch side cottage in Scotland. But trouble soon catches up with them. THE PLOT follows the people in the couple's lives - those who support them, others who wish to resist or harm them, and some on whom Cupid also comes calling. It portrays family discord and evil intent, but is t without a touch of humour. And it reveals the gap between rich and poor and the humanitarian works of those who care. THE NOVEL grew out of the author's short story Love at Sunset, first published in The Lady magazine, London, England, and featured in Sunbeams from the Heart - A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories. Here, by popular demand, is the full story of Violet and Gordon and their undying love for each other, despite all odds! EXCERPTS FROM LOVE AT SUNSET: Once out of sight from the main road, they relaxed on a seat beneath a casuarina tree and kissed. Then they gazed out across the sapphire blue sea to a lone sailboat on the horizon. The sun was going down, the sky like an artist's canvas with gold and orange brush strokes. The sweet aroma of a barbecue drifted along the sea shore. The apartment was spotless. Violet's elegant furniture was still in place, but her ornaments, photos, paintings and other personal items were missing. Sandra opened drawers and closets. Empty. Ian sang a Bahamian love song, thinking all the time about Anna, the young woman he had recently been thrown together with at the humane society. He remembered how she had swept her long brown hair out of the way and smiled at him with those soft hazel eyes. Aware they would need to turn back soon because the days were getting shorter, they ate quickly and continued up the mountain slope. The path had become slippery, with mud in patches. It's getting a bit misty, Violet said, feeling a little anxious. Perhaps we should turn back. Just a bit further, lassie. We still have time. But the path became more treacherous. As darkness fell he heated up a can of soup and had it with some fresh, sweet Long Island bread. He made sure his door was locked, stretched out on the bed and tried to go to sleep. He kept thinking about the two men and wondered why they thought so highly of Violet Buchanan. As far as he was concerned, she was just an old lady with a lot of property that she really didn't need.
