Sean Wallace doesn’t trust women. His mother spent all of Sean’s life pining after her absentee husband. Then, a few weeks after her death, his fiancée left him for another man. No, women are definitely not to be trusted.
Maggie Garrison happy with her children, her ranch, and her horses. The last thing in the world she needs is a man to complicate her life, especially one who is thirteen years younger than she is.
Maggie Garrison has been a widow for almost 15 years. Her husband Jim, who had loved her to distraction, was killed in an automobile accident. She’s learned to live with her loss. She has her children, her horses, and her ranch. She doesn’t need another man. Besides, no man will ever be able to love her as much as Jim did.
Then, Maggie and Sean meet. Both are drawn to the other. Both fight the attraction. But… There is something between them, and they finally acknowledge it. But, Maggie is thirteen years Sean’s senior. Can their love overcome the age difference – and the animosity of some of her children?
Shaking her head, she placed her palm flat against his chest and stiffened her arm, halting his next step. Beneath her hand, his heart was racing as fast as hers. She had to get a hold of herself. “Stop right there, Sean Wallace. I’m not a silly girl to be swept off her feet by the blandishments of a sexy, young man.”
A crooked smile appeared on his handsome face. “Maggie…”
She stared at him, remembering his kisses, kisses that had her aching in places better left dead. She had to get away! “No!” she moaned, shaking her head and bracing her hand against him. Her passion surged. His chest was so firm!
She closed her eyes and shuddered. Gathering her will, she conquered her body’s sensual urgings. “No, this can’t be!” she sobbed. With a firm and unexpected shove, she pushed him out of her way and ran--ran from the sensuous, silver-eyed, black-haired devil who had awakened the riot of passions she’d kept chained for so long. Now they were free again. How would she ever survive the long, lonely nights alone?
Laurel Johnson, Amazing Authors Showcase Reviews
May and September romances never work out, right? Especially when the woman is September. Any reader who believes that old axiom has not met Maggie and Sean!
A Rhythm Divine is much more than romance genre fiction, thanks to the intriguing story line...
The sparks resulting from that first meeting, and the story line that Ms. Mays creates, hooked me from Chapter One. This author knows a thing or two about male-female relationships and how to write them believably. Along the way she introduces us to realistic, fascinating characters and well-written dialogue, but her focus never strays far from the lovers or the age old "rhythm divine" they share. I found this story to be both volatile and endearing. I give it an enthusiastic five stars.

A RHYTHM DEVINE by Judy Mays captivates your interest from the very start. The chemistry between the two characters is electric and comes alive for the readers to experience for themselves. You will cheer for Sean and Maggie from the very start and rejoice when they find their way back to each other’s hearts forever! A RHYTHM DEVINE left me with a happy feeling that stayed for a long time after the last page was turned. I would gladly read any other book by this author and recommend this book to any reader!
Kari Thomas, Loves Romances
This was an emotional, passionate love story; one that will tug at the reader’s heartstrings, and wring every bit of emotional out of you. You finish reading it with that “wonderful-feel-good-happily-ever-after” feeling.
The five Roses are well deserved for Ms. May’s creative, wonderful story that proves love is not prejudice and age doesn’t matter, and reinforcing the belief that love conquers all.
