Felicity's Power by J. Arlene Culiner is a contemporary romance with an older hero and heroine, and asks the question, what happens when you come face to face with an old lover many years later? Marek Sumner and Felicity Powers were drawn to each other and responded with a hot and heavy romance. But they had their differences. Felicity wanted a life full of adventure. Marek wanted something more stable. Unfortunately passion wasn't enough to keep the pair together. Years later, the pair reunites and rekindles their passion for one another (that really never left). While Felicity wants to give the relationship a try, Marek is gun shy. He's still looking for stability and quiet and Felicity is still outgoing and adventurous. Can years change the fact that they are not compatible? It is up to Felicity to use her second chance to prove to Marek that their love is worth fighting for.
I love the idea of stories that showcase old loves. Seeing parallel ages of characters is always interesting, too, since you get to see a wide development that isn't often found in other stories. This is a unique romance, though, in the fact that the characters are older. Most readers are expecting a young love, that is attractive and fresh and exciting. The idea of an older love can be so much more satisfying, thinking about what the characters gave up over the years, but some readers may have a hard time getting past the ages of those in the current romance.
