Umpteen years ago when I starting writing seriously, I never dreamed that one day I’d be writing Amish romance. Romance yes, of course. Naturally even. I wrote historical romances with a partner, then without a partner. After that I switched to short contemporary romances and then to romantic comedies and single titles.
Then I had the opportunity to switch things up and write an Amish romance.
There are many reasons why I love writing Amish romance, but I’d have to say the number one reason is the challenge of getting two people to fall in love under such conservative circumstances. In a culture where a young unmarried couple would not be allowed to be alone for long—if at all—the lure of a stolen kiss or a brief touch is too good to be ignored.
In Katie’s Choice, Katie Rose Fisher is past the age of singings and having her potential beau court her in the traditional ways of the Amish. Yet she finds herself attracted to the handsome English reporter, Zane Carson. Both of them feel this pull, but they also know that they can’t act on it.
They decide to become friends, each of them wanting to spend time with the other yet knowing that it will lead nowhere. So along with the conservative dating practices, there’s the lure of the forbidden.
English wanting to join up with the Amish is practically unheard of, but the thought does cross Zane’s mind. It’s just about then that Samuel Beachy returns, and Katie is forced into the choice of a lifetime.
Katie’s Choice is the second novel in the Clover Ridge Series and is available now.
