Posted: July 1, 2013

Emma reluctantly returns to Cupid, Texas, stealing time from her career as a television journalist, to be her high school best friend's maid of honor. The four months of her brief, youthful marriage to Tucker, her high school boyfriend, had been fiery in lots of ways. She can't quite forget his kisses, even though she's tried. To her chagrin, she sees Tucker at the wedding rehearsal since his brother is the groom. Just as hot as he was before, Tucker's still the hunky guy she married right out of high school, but now he's a medical doctor. Emma's shocked to discover they're still married. She'd thought Tucker took care of the matter, but he tells her he never got a divorce. They're still married and Tucker isn't sure he wants a divorce. He still has feelings for Emma.

She has to decide if the flames between her and her husband deserve another shot.

MY REVIEW:
A very sweet short story. Something to read …

An Unlikely Pair

Free short story. My Once and Future Love series. The high school years.

By typical standards, Beth and Jacob should've never been friends, but it's funny what Geometry class and a shared backyard wall can bring about.

The first book in this popular series, "An Unlikely Pair: The High School Years" covers Beth and Jacob's friendship before their inevitable kiss and attempt at a relationship in "An Unlikely Pair", and sets up a bond that will last a lifetime.

MY REVIEW:
I really enjoyed this book. The two characters just jump off the pages to touch your heart. They are in some way each of us at some point in high school life. The bond of friendship they formed was heart warming & heart breaking at the same time. For those two years during your teens can be a life time. The way it ends just killed me. Can't wait to read the next installment. But can't imagine it will be as wholesome as this prequel.

TOUGH TO LOVE: SAVING AVERYAVA CATORI
Posted: July 1, 2013

Hardened from past hurts, can Avery West and Steel Brickman find the strength to heal one another? Steel’s intensity is overbearing and strong, crushing Avery’s ability to breathe. Avery’s wall is so thick – it seems almost impenetrable. Tangled in a mess of pain and desire, the two must learn to trust one another to find their own salvation.





MY REVIEW:

This was a moving and thought provoking story. I have to say it had its moments where I didn't want to put it down but yet it was so sad because of the codependency that they both had in the relationship that they had with each other. But, at least there was love there for at the end there seemed to be a HEA. I thought Avery had such a hard past to work through and Steel was the perfect man to help her work through it and Steel too had his issues of being a controlling person but yet he was able...moreThis was a moving and thought provoking story. I have to say it had its mome…

HUBBY'S REVIEW:

On March 18, 1990, thirteen works of art today worth over $500 million were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there’s more to this crime than meets the eye.

Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting—a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum—in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claire’s studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery.

Her desperate search for the truth leads Claire into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late nineteenth century may be the only evidence that can now s…
