How do you write a “historical romance” set in today’s rather unromantic society of cell phones, motorcycles, fancy cars, fast sex, and guns? You write it the way Cynthia L. Clark has written Boulder Girl, Remember Me When the Moon Hangs Low. Even the title immediately hints at old-fashioned romance and conjures up memories of songs from past decades, the ones we associate with first love, first kiss, a first everything that made us feel on top of the world. That’s how recent divorcee and successful editor Lana Ross feels when she meets and falls head over her Louboutin stilettos in love with Roadking, a wealthy Harley Davidson dealer. Of course, both protagonists are what we expect from historical heroes and heroines: he is handsome and she is gorgeous…which is why she is also the target of a most unwanted and unbalanced suitor, Leon. Leon’s obsession with her is the subplot that gives this beautiful love story a sinister and frightening component. Will Lana’s new love save her from Leon’s evil desires? Will Roadking ride his Harley to her rescue, or not?
These questions will keep you turning the pages until you reach its realistic, contemporary conclusion. Not sure what I mean? You’ll understand when you immerse yourself in Clark’s well-crafted story, Boulder Girl, Remember Me When the Moon Hangs Low, rich with detailed descriptions of clothing, scenery, restaurants, and food. As for the characters, Clark lets them reveal themselves, as a good writer should, through their words, thoughts, and actions, i.e., lots of “show vs. tell.” Throughout her skillful narration, description, and dialogue handling, the author has also tossed some exciting information about traveling around Boulder, Colorado. She has put everything into writing her debut novel. It’s little wonder Cynthia L. Clark has been named Winner of the 2022-2023 Reader Views Literary Award in Adult Classics Romance.
