Welcome to Day 17 of the Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. The question I put out to all of these authors was “What challenges do you face in writing romance in today’s society?”

Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too. I’ll put the link at the bottom of this post.

Today my guest author is  Marina de Nadous  and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about Marina and her book The Celestial Sea.

What Challenges do you face writing romance in today’s society?

The story, although a romance, was never planned. I faced no challenges apart from the huge ones interwoven through the tale—namely those of moral expectation and accepted codes of practice. My story is more of a personal discovery/quest and will resonate with readers interested in self-development, spirituality and mystery. I could speak about considered restraint versus overt sexuality; poetic nuance versus the currently popular BDSM, but I would rather readers read my books and decided for themselves.

For privacy Marina has kept her face in the dark. She is from Frome in Somerset, UK and has only been writing for 7 years.

A glorious, exciting and heart-wrenching tale, The Celestial Sea is the first book in a new series. 

This is the story of an English housewife and mother and an artistic Kiwi man; musician, woodsman and teacher, who find themselves embracing life in the Southern Hemisphere in the most unexpected and extraordinary way. Plucked from the bosom of all she has ever known; she finds herself exploring the beautiful land of Aotearoa, New Zealand, in the company of a thrilling companion whose own settled, community life is challenged by her arrival.

Walking a fine line between blessing and disaster their creative liaison becomes a clandestine love affair of epic proportion, surprising them both with its spiritual truth. Dare they merge their growing affection into an everyday reality? Through the often hilarious adventures that make up their ‘ordinary’ routines they find themselves escaping to the tranquillity of their imaginary boat, The Celestial Sea; sailing for many months in uncharted waters and alighting upon shores of such passion and sensuality that they risk capsizing, causing an almighty scandal in the harbour.

The Celestial Sea culminates as the profundity of their connection leads to a tragic ending of thwarted love – but is it really the end…? Find out in the subsequent books planned for the series entitled Dry-Dock, Setting Sail, Calm Waters, No Horizon, Kookaburra on the Deck, Time is the Brake.

 
Go over to Amazon and check out Marina’s books.
