Fifty is the new least according to Randella "Randi" Gage.

Randi shares her wit and wisdom in a collection of essays from her perspective on reaching the sixth decade of her life, with an attitude on women reaching fifty shouldn't be the end of the world.
From fashion to AARP memberships, from youthful attitudes to dealing with an ever-changing world in general, the best surprises for Randi comes – of all days - on her own fiftieth birthday.

In this punchy, romantic take on the wrestling world where only some of the physical contact takes place in the ring, sports journalist Karen Montgomery has been following for years the career of Brett Kerrigan, one of the smallest cruiserweight wrestlers in the business, and can recall in detail every bout he has ever fought, recognising his outstanding skills as a wrestler and his intuitive flair for entertaining the crowd. She has even written an award-winning article about him. Now she desperately wants to meet him. One night, after many failed attempts to reach him, she looks up to find him standing right there in front of her. They get talking and they immediately hit it off. However, as they become involved and grow ever-closer, Brett loses his contract and must strike out on his own. Will their relationship survive the pressures on both of them, their differences in ages, and the other women in Brett's life? Or will one of them decide they are not the ideal tag-team after all?

  1. I was out all day yesterday, and so missed this post, much to my annoyance, because Lori is a great wrtiter who supports others and certainly deserves our full support in return. Fifty sounds like a very interesting book. The Cruiserweight, of course, I've already read and can warmly recommend. Keep going from strength to strength, Lori!

  2. A romance where the 'girl' is not young and beautiful? What a very pleasant change. I thought it was almost obligatory for romance novels - the girl young and beautiful and the man strong and handsome. So real people can find love too? How very nice.

  3. Thanks for commenting lovely folks.

    The winner of the two ebooks is M.A.McRae. They will be on their way to you very shortly.

  4. from Marj, but I can't seem to sign in today.
    Just to say how pleased I am, but especially for 'Cruiserweight.'
    I can't wait, (which is unfortunate as I'm workng on a new book myself)
    So thanks, very much. Marj.
