A contemporary tale of Discovered Love

About the Book

The adage of, “Look good, you never know who might cross your path,” is true. Love can appear in the most unlikely places or untimely ways. When you least expect it, Cupid can strike.

Julia was not looking for a man, rather the reverse. Ex-Ronald killed her desire for one. But then along came GQ-ready Erik and her thinking changed, ever-so-slowly. Could he be the guy who would sweep Ronald from her memory?

Erik was content with his life, though he hoped for another love after ex-Ashley cheated on him. Innocently attending a friend’s father-son softball game, who was there cheering for their team but gorgeous Julia. He could hardly keep his eyes from her. Could she be his long-desired life-partner?

Starting with an impromptu date for Pho after the softball game, their relationship blossoms quickly. Could Ronald’s reappearance in Julia’s life destroy everything?

About the Author

I love to write contemporary and inspirational romance short stories and novellas, thirty-minute to two-hour reads, sweet romances with some sizzle in them. They warm your heart and give flight to your imagination. For someone who hated English in High School and University, I sometimes wonder how I got here. I’ve had animals on four acres: horses, dogs, cats, one named Max, who emitted horrific gas if hugged, chickens, and some hilarious ducks, Indian Runners, which ran rather than waddled.
