While out with her best friend Brooke the night before the wedding, Tess begins doubting her decision. This is of course the moment Will Tremere, her high school crush, decides to walk back into her life. Later that night, Tess stumbles upon Paul in a highly indiscreet position with another woman - in the very church where the wedding is to be performed. In a moment of panic, Tess calls the number Will gave her and offers to join him on his drive to California. And thus begins The Kiss , a new contemporary romance novel from Elda Minger. More than anything else, what recommends The Kiss is the vibrant cast of secondary characters.

Something went wrong. Please try your request again later. Actually, no. I was born in Hollywood, California, and have lived in Southern California most of my life. My parents were both teachers, so I grew up in a house filled with books and music. Also animals, and lots of relatives. My grandmother taught me to read before I went to school. We read everything.
Comic books, the backs of cereal boxes, and lots of books. She also taught me to keep a journal from the time I was nine, so the pathway from my brain to a pen was developed early. I never thought of being a writer. My uncle published a biography of Mozart. My father, a history professor, published three textbooks. As a child, I imagined that writers were alone at their desks, always isolated.
They also got depressed when the rejections arrived. Not what I wanted to do for a living! My parents always encouraged me to dream. Nothing was seen as out of reach, and a career in the arts was respected. When my father died two months before I graduated from college, I started writing a novel. It was my way of trying to find order in chaos and pain. Six years after I started, I published that novel, and went on to write a few dozen more. I was so wrong about the writing life. And as for the rejections?
The truth is that writing is not for the faint hearted. You need a certain toughness which was hard for me to learn. Works like a charm. I love to hear from readers. Come visit me at www.
