The Dividing Line Synopsis:
A new love and a new life.
Drake left Chicago with little more than the clothes on his back to be with his girlfriend Lacey. Though he has no regrets, he sometimes wonders if his time spent in Paris has put his life on hold. He’s overworked and underpaid at his dead-end job, and his employer sees him as expendable. His bright light at the end of the day is Lacey, but he finds himself slowly falling into the shadow of her newly-acquired fame. The city of love has found their new starlet in Lacey, but Drake is simply the man by her side.
With all good things there comes a price.
Lacey has been living the dream. She arrived in Paris with nothing but heartache and loss. Now, she’s the rising star of the city’s newest opera and dating the man of her dreams. When her performance contract is extended, she must decide if her new life of glitz and glam is what’s best for a future with the man she loves—or if it’s just what’s best for her.
Paris brought Drake and Lacey together. But when their hopes for the future begin taking them in different directions, they must a find common ground or risk a line dividing them that may prove to be insurmountable.
The Dividing Line is the sequel to the new adult multicultural romance The Space Between.
My Favourite Scene to Write
My favourite scenes to write are always the ones that have some of the heaviest emotional aspects to them. In the case of The Dividing Line, I really enjoyed writing Drake and Lacey’s steamy night in Chicago. Yes, it was fun because it was sensual and oh-so-naughty ;), but what was really great about it were the emotions involved. Drake and Lacey are going through some major life changes as a couple and both their hearts are on the line in this scene. This scene was also special because there’s very intimate sexual exploration going on between the pair. They’re exploring new things, building a stronger bond, and a greater connection is made between them because of it. I love opening the door and allowing the reader to see that and feel that in the writing.
