Where's the Romantic Sunset? by Brenda Whiteside

Sunset over our orchard
Share a Sunset with Your Lover Month. What a great idea - and certainly something a romance writer should slip into her books, right? Shame on me. I found one vague reference in Sleeping with the Lights On.

The glow from the candle on the table danced in my wine, and the boot on the ankle trick flowed through me. We took a few bites in silence. The sun had not quite gone down, and the moon appeared as a wispy vision when I glanced out the window. The moon, fettuccini, Chianti, and Carson’s touch set the mood.

We moved to Arizona, on a northern prairie, at the beginning of the year. I grew up in the desert area of Arizona. One thing I remembered about the desert was the great sunsets. Not to get too technical, I've heard the dust in the air makes for great sunsets. Here on the prairie we have great sunsets also. And this is by far dustier than the desert.

At night, we like to sit on the patio and watch the sun go down. So I thought I'd share some of my sunset pictures with you in celebration of Share a Sunset with Your Lover Month.

And for sure, in the book I'm writing right now - I need to get some romantic sunset scenes written!
