Fair Weather Enemies, January 2020

My first historical romance novel is Fair Weather Enemies.

The Hancocks and Ashfords have fought a long-standing feud between their families long before Miss Jane Hancock couldn't stand the sight of Adam Ashford. But after both families fall on hard times and an unscrupulous creditor forces Jane and Adam to sign a devil's bargain, they'll finally understand the true meaning of keeping your enemies close at hand.

The terms of this bargain? Locate a lost treasure shrouded in deception and mystery.

The catch? Only one can claim it to win...the loser is left to ruin.

As Jane and Adam embark on a trek throughout England, they plan to hate their adversary, no matter how attractive, generous, and kind they are.

Sometimes, plans change...

For Jane and Adam…

  • F is for Feud. The fighting between their families stretches back 70 years.
  • A is for Animosity. At first, their relationship is defined by it.
  • I is for Inheritances. Both stand to lose everything.
  • R is for Road Trip. Only an odyssey can save them.
  • W is for Wicked Banter. They can’t resist verbal sparring.
  • E is for Enigma. The clues to finding the treasure are vague and puzzling.
  • A is for Ally. Aunt Hester and Mr. Barlow chaperone the journey, and begin a dance of their own.
  • T is for Tension. The tension of conflict slowly gives way to romantic and sexual tension.
  • H is for History. Theirs is complicated!
  • E is for Escapades. Each has played wild pranks on the other in the past.
  • R is for Riddles. Every clue is a seemingly unsolvable riddle.
  • E is for Eccentric. They meet a cast of odd and colorful characters along the road.
  • N is for No Way Out. There seems no path to a happily-ever-after.
  • E is for Enticing. On the road, each becomes enticed by the other.
  • M is for Mystery. The mystery of the treasure draws them along.
  • I is for Intimate. Intimate proximity leads to intimate feelings.
  • E is for Entangled. Their lives have been entangled since they were born.
  • S is for Salvation. Can they both find salvation, or must one win while the other loses.

About Sawyer North

Sawyer North

After self-publishing science fiction novels over a period of years, I made the truly odd move into historical romance. Although romance is a strong thread in nearly all my works, I came to straight-up, nothing-but-romance only after turning fifty. Since then, I am plagued by the question, “What took me so long?” My awakening began rather innocuously when I casually watched the 2015 version of Poldark. Before I knew, I was falling headlong into the abyss of historical romance and read fifteen such novels over a three-month span. However, no number could sufficiently scratch my itch for more, so I did what any writer would do and began constructing stories of my own. In April of 2019, I received my first contract with Entangled Publishing.

Re: Sawyer North | Title Challenge: FAIR WEATHER ENEMIES + Giveaway!

I like having a window into a different time and place. I prefer
books that are factually accurate not just stories that could be
set just about anywhere or anytime. It is interesting to see
how society functioned differently and how the rules of society
differed in different time periods.

i love that they manage to make it through life without
elecrtonics
(Vickie Couturier 10:15am Wednesday)

Favorite thing about historical romances are the strong, intelligent, independent heroines who defy the restrictions society and family place on them. They pursue their dreams and find their soul mate who supports them physically and emotionally.

Hi, Sawyer! Thank you for the fun time on Facebook this week! What I enjoy most
about historical romance is the gallantry, courtesy, responsibility, honesty,
integrity, well, you get the picture! And I love a happily ever after! My escapes
from reality that leave me feeling upbeat! Wishing you great success!
(Alice Castle 1:00pm Wednesday)

I love when historical facts and places and names are woven
within a story.
(Nancy Reynolds 2:00pm Wednesday)

First of all, thank you. Secondly, I like historicals because I learn thing from
history that are new and interesting.
(Patti Paonessa 8:50pm Wednesday)

They're a great way to escape today's way of life!
(Tracy Urschler 9:08pm Wednesday)

In historical romances the men seem more heroic and the
women more determined to be independent. And different ways
of life are interesting.
(Melanie Rosen 12:26pm Thursday)

Thanks for helpful article :)
(Wendy Veros 6:43am Thursday)

Historical Romance takes me back to a time when women had
more obligations and customs. The men had a lot of
freedom. And I like learning how they get along with their
family and friends.
(Alyson Widen 12:52pm Friday)

I enjoy taking a journey into a time period completely different from the present.
(Anna Speed 5:01pm Friday)
