Lions and tigers and galley proofs, oh my! I just sent my galley proof for Hearts In Harmony, Book 2 in the Five Senses series, back to my editor. Now, we just have to wait until May for the release date. That is so far away! But I know the time will go fast. And while we wait - here's a little snippet of what you can expect:
Sometimes life’s most simple melodies become songs of love.
Pippa Sanders’ life is filled with songs of leaving, longing and loneliness. Since the death of her husband, her children have been her world. She’ll do anything to protect them, including encasing her heart in ice until they’re college age. She’s made a practice of shying away from any relationship that could break her heart when it ends. And it’s worked so far.
Clay Mathers has made a temporary move to Granite Pointe, Massachusetts to help with his mother’s Christmas tree farm while she recovers from a stroke. Although his long-range plans don’t include staying in the small town, a little female companionship during his short residency would be welcome. While on duty as sentry against protestors at a military funeral, he finds Pippa visiting her husband’s grave, and begins a campaign to make her into a friend–with benefits.
What starts as a simple affair evolves to something more, something that changes the soundtracks of both their lives…the beating of two hearts in harmony.
CONTENT WARNING: Contains strong language, hot sex and a spicy hero.
A Lyrical Press Contemporary Romance
When I was young, I could spend hours reading. It didn't matter what genre or subject. And anywhere I could sit still for a few hours could be my reading spot. At the pool, in the car, on my parent's patio. I wasn't picky. A life-long love affair with reading led to a passion for creative writing.
Fast forward to present day...and the exciting news from a publisher who was willing to take a chance on the story I wove from a scrap of an idea and a love of cooking. Cooking Up Love will be released in January 2014. This entire dream became very real when I received the artwork for the cover of my debut novel.
