A Bicycle Build For Two

A novel by

No one can pedal a bicycle around turn-of-the-century New York without a license, so Amanda Blackwell's cycling school has become all the rage. The innovative establishment provides an income for the independent miss and her brother Donny, a special child. But in one afternoon, everything goes to hade in a handbasket. Amanda's uncle is suing to put Donny into an institution and Damian Newcastle, the handsomest man she ever met, rides into her life to ruin everything.

Architect Damian Newcastle has a dream—to build the highest skyscraper in New York so his wheelchair-bound son can see "the world" from atop the building. He just needs the land occupied by Amanda's cycling school to do it. But the building collapse that ruined his father's company caused Amanda's father's death. He and Amanda are supposed to be enemies, yet they are experiencing an overwhelming desire neither can put the brakes on. If only they can ride tandem on the byways of love, they have this chance of a lifetime to heal their hearts.

Some Reviewer Comments:

From Library Journal ...
Amanda Blackwell, owner of the popular Miss Blackwell's Cycling School and guardian of her mentally disabled younger brother, is not about to let anyone interfere with her life; not her wealthy uncle, who wants to send her brother to an asylum, nor the much-too-attractive architect Damian Newcastle, who plans to build a 20-story building next to her school. But Damian has an agenda of his own which, among other things, includes Amanda. Some hilarious cycling scenes and a cast of often quirky secondary characters offers an interesting contrast to the book's serious themes.

L.A. Times ...
Be prepared for a wild ride as this talented author weaves these wonderful characters and fascinating historical details into a magical plot. Review ...
Brownley's rich, colorful descriptions of 19th-century New York are a delight, her characters are warm and endearing, and readers will laugh out loud at the escapades of Amanda's cycling students. Don't miss this one—it's a keeper.

Affaire de Coeur ...
Magnificent Margaret Brownley scribes a marvelous Americana romance that brings alive New York City at the end of the nineteenth century. This is a fantastic historical romance that contains a brilliantly drawn story line and two great lead protagonists.

The Belles and Beaux of Romance ...
A combination romance, history lesson and comedy all rolled into one.
