Editorial Reviews

Review

"New love isn't just for those in their teens, 20's and 30's, meet forty-year-old Esmeralda, still a virgin, still hoping to someday find a special man to love and marry for more than one reason... Can an older, semi-retired, twice divorced man be the knight in rusty armor she has been waiting for? Is it worth risking her heart on Hank or could his past be what makes him the perfect match for love? Go team real adults! The need for love and companionship doesn't end when you hit the backside of 35, and the life experiences can be invaluable to creating a true and lasting bond. Contrary to the popular reading material out there, you do NOT need a perfect body, billions of dollars and dark fetishes. Hebby Roman writes about real people, flawed-by-life-and-circumstance people who are a little gun shy to take the next step to romance. No insta-love, no sex from page one through twenty, only to be repeated on pages twenty-five through forty, just an honest look at what reality is... Hebby Roman's Esmeralda and the Second-Hand Suitor is a refreshing, realistic and heart-warming read that has a few dark twists and flawed characters reaching out to be accepted." 4.5 STARS From Dianne B. at TOME TENDER         
"This delightful story proves that not only is it possible to not have sex before marriage, but it's also possible to find lasting love without it, even after 40 or 50 years old. In an interesting twist for modern times, Hank is the one hiding things, holding back until he's certain he won't be used by Esme, though she certainly is hiding her need to be married... Anyone wanting to know that love can happen at any age will adore their journey." 2017 RONE FINALIST FOUR STARS InD'Tale Magazine 
First Impressions: "... I could really identify with Esmeralda's rather cynical approach to dating. It was almost like I'd found a kindred spirit in her pessimism! I think for many people their default assumption in regards to Esme would be that she must be ... catty to not even give him a chance. But that's so far from the truth...! Her obsession with pointing out his ... flaws says... more about her own character than his. It reveals her insecurity with herself... Girl, I feel you. A lot of us feel you. And I love it soooooo much!
 ... cemented my positive opinion of Hank. It wasn't just that he didn't want to pressure a woman into entering a sexual relationship with him before she felt ready. He chose to stand by her, and go at her own pace. Hank never made her feel guilty for taking things slow, or weird over the fact she's never had sex at her age. You a good dude Hank.
This is a tale of a quick romance. Hank and Esme really don't know each other that long, but they are quite open with each other in regards to their pasts... It's still a sweet romance though showing that it's never too late for people to find each other, and have their dreams come true. Reviewed by Lauren Szymanski at romance4thebeach          

From the Author

      Esmeralda and Hank are an unlikely couple. She's led a sheltered life, dominated by a demanding father who has never forgiven her for a tragic mistake she made when she was a child. Even after his death, her father tries to control her with his will that forces her to marry to retain ownership of her family's orchard, which is her only means of support.
      Hank, on the other hand, was raised in an orphanage and thrust into the world at an early age where he managed to put himself through college and become a professional. But his first two marriages end in divorce, and he's been laid off from his management job and unable to find steady employment.
      At the beginning, Esmeralda is uneasy around Hank because of his checkered past and his unconventional approach to life. He takes contract work but just enough to get by, while he enjoys living his life to the fullest. He's learned, the hard way, that money isn't everything. Esmeralda is the direct opposite, believing money provides security, something she desperately needs as a single woman.
      Despite their differences, they're attracted to each other and enjoy their time together. Can their blossoming love overcome the obstacles they face and give two very deserving people a happily-ever-after resolution?
