I’ve been working hard to get my second novel ready for release in September and it’s looking like I’m going to make that happen.  Right now the manuscript is with my second editor who will do the final once over and format it for e-book and print.  While this is happening my fabulous cover artist will be working his magic as I finalize the all important blurb.

Here’s a look at the blurb in progress:

Love Is Enough – draft blurb

Angie Antonelli has the life she’s always wanted—a promising political career, a supportive family, and great friends.  The one thing missing is what she hoped she’d have by now, a committed relationship with the woman of her dreams.

Jan Clifford is taking a break from dating while she figures out how to create a life that is more fulfilling than the country club society of her parents and her job in the family’s investment firm.

When Angie and Jan are set up on a blind date, the chemistry is immediate and the attraction undeniable, but each wonders if she can really fit into the other’s world.  Can the politician who fights for the little guy make things work with the financier who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth?

Before it has time to get very far, this new relationship is put to the test.   First, Angie must decide how she really feels when the woman who broke her heart many years ago suddenly comes back into her life.  And then the worlds of politics and finance collide when Jan refuses to walk away from a business deal that threatens Angie’s re-election to a second term in Congress. 

Can the intense connection they feel keep Angie and Jan together? Only hopeless romantics believe that love is enough. 

From the author of the award-winning debut novel, Exception to the Rule, Cindy Rizzo once again delivers a riveting story that blends romance with the important issues of our time. 


Yes, that’s the same Angie Antonelli from Exception to the Rule, now in her 30s and finishing her first term in Congress.  But Love Is Enough is not a sequel.  Think of it more like part of series, with each book standing on its own.

This is a story with its share of twists and turns.  Oh, and plus, you’ll have a front row seat as Angie’s friends make Jan take the mysterious Galileo Test.  Would your new girlfriend be able pass it?  You’ll know very soon when Love Is Enough is released in September.  Watch this space!
