Cate Masters asks....Is love a greater thrill than extreme sports?

I love to write spunky, fearless heroines. In Twice In A Blue Moon, my heroine Melanie Michaels can be too fearless. She named her extreme sports show No Boundaries for good reason—she will perform almost any stunt, and travels the globe to search for exciting places to perform them.

She’s not an adrenaline junkie. She’s just heartbroken after the loss of her fiancee. So she jumps out of airplanes, leaps off cliffs wearing a wingsuit, or dives into mysterious underwater caves.

Me, I’m too chicken to try any of that! But I loved researching the various extreme sports. The story doesn’t delve too deeply into them because once Melanie travels to Sweden, she’s having second thoughts about her life. Though she’s never admitted it to anyone, in that space and silence between worlds, sometimes her fiancee comes to her. Talks to her. She feels more alive in those few seconds than anywhere else.

Until she meets the hero, Joe “Buck” Wright. He seems to know her thoughts before she speaks, and understands her better than anyone after only a few days together. She must decide whether she’s ready to take the biggest leap of all—to love again.

Do you like stories with strong heroines?

TwiceInABlueMoon-MDCan true love strike twice?

After the death of her first love, Melanie Michaels buries her grief in the risky demands of a reality show, where her extreme stunts leave her teetering on the edge of danger. That’s exactly where she wants to be—until she arranges for her crew to traverse the Swedish Lapland in the dead of winter. It’s the one place she shouldn’t go, on the one day she should avoid—her would-be wedding anniversary.

Instead of romantic nights spent in the Ice Hotel or under the Northern Lights, Melanie is stuck with Joe “Buck” Wright, a snarky loner tour guide who loves his sled dogs and nothing and no one else. But Buck is also trying to numb a painful past. Can two people skilled at pushing others away find warmth at the edge of the Arctic?
