As I stated in an earlier blog, I have tried my hand at a few stories with adult content.
The reasons are many but suffice it to say, I enjoy books with a story, a plot and hopefully an unpredictable trope or two.
I recently noticed an uptick in sales of Perpetual Palpitation.
If you have read this book, Thanks so much!
Perpetual Palpitation or forever and heartbeats One could and should interpret this to Love Always.
After a brutal divorce, instigated by his wife of many years, Ben decided he must change his course in life. Spending his early years starting and building a mega-business, he had no time for himself and certainly no time for his young family. Not even aware that his daughter was not really his, Ben buries himself in his work until one day he is served with divorce papers.
Selling the company per the divorce decree, Ben takes his half of their fortune, packs his car with some clothes and his laptop; and leaves California in his rearview mirror. With no destination in mind, he only heads east.
Several days later Ben ends up on Amelia Island; he simply ran out of road away from his past.
Finding a beach house to rent, he pulls out his laptop and seeks to do that which he has always dreamt of, writing a book much like the Sherlock Holmes novels he loved as a young person.
Ideas whirl around in his head as he decides to take in some of the local culture.
Dr. Stein, a world famous heart surgeon, is also part of the culture that Ben runs into in a pub. She is there because she lost one of her patients to greed and unjust laws. Fate plays a role as the two become inseparable over time.
Dr. Stein has a dark secret which pushes Ben to the limits of his prudish ways. Adjusting to who they are together, Ben and Juliet weave the tapestry of modern-day life into a story that will live for the ages.
This novel is an adult novel, but there is much more story than naughtiness. Taking many out of their comfort zone and adding all sorts of twist and turns into the story, you might not be able to predict where it will end up.
The characters will tell you the story in their words. My keen wit and sense of humor will hopefully entertain you.
The cover art is a combination of an oil painting that I did years ago, and some digital magic.
