So today's post comes from the very last guest blogger in the 40 for 40 celebrations - and once again I want to introduce you to one of the newest Modern Romance/ Harlequin Presents authors. Not quite as brand new as Michelle because Victoria Parker has her second book out now. Which means she's got past that difficult 'second book blues; time - Congratulations, Victoria!
I read and enjoyed Victoria's first book - The Princess in the Iron Mask so I'm looking forward to her new title - A Reputation to Uphold. As I said, when introducing Michelle, the new writers are the 'new blood' of the line and I hope that Victoria has a long and successful career ahead of her. I'm really happy to introduce her to you here today -
And to round off the 40 for 40 celebration in true style - Victoria is celebrating her own wedding anniversary today.
So welcome Victoria. And Happy Anniversary.
Firstly, huge congratulations to Kate and Steve on 40 years of wedded bliss! My hubby and I celebrated our 10th anniversary last summer so 40 years seriously boggles my mind and leaves me completely awed. I was very young when I first met my husband and little did I know then, we had a rocky road ahead of us. Lots of ups and down and wrong turns but we always found our way back to each other. I like to think our hearts were driving us and we were destined to eventually meet in the same place. And if I’ve learned one thing from our youthful encounters and subsequent marriage it’s that you have to love hard. We all change through the years and it takes a deep loyal friendship and mutual respect to grow together. That’s one thing I noticed most about Kate and Steve when I first met them – they are great friends as well as a truly loving couple.
