Writing romance was a fantasy I started taking seriously when I turned forty, but then I was always a late developer.

It would be nice to be looking in the mirror right now and thinking, "Wow, my clothes are just falling off me, thank goodness the festive season will fix that."
But let's at least look in the mirror and say, "Kid, you did good" handling whatever real-life challenges came our way.

“I'm a very truthful person, but if the greater good is best served by a lie then I'll tell it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“Her expression shut faster than a poked clam. 'I'll just get a cardigan.'
He might not be a hellraiser anymore but Devin valued his reputation. 'Haven't you got anything sexy?'
'Yes,' said Rachel, 'my mind.”
Karina Bliss, What the Librarian Did

“You know what I wish for?” she said through a tight throat. “What I
really need? A man who loves me enough to stay.”

Karina Bliss, What the Librarian Did

“Liar,' he said in disgust. 'You're still playing doctors and nurses with the guy you screwed Charlie over with.' Her mouth fell open. 'Don't worry, I won't tell my brother. He's got enough to deal with.'
'I would never have an affair.'
'See here's where you and I part ways on our definition of fidelity,' he said. 'I think tonsil hockey with another man is off the agenda for a married woman. Call me old-fashioned.'
Her fury was unexpected. 'Who started that rumor...who!'
'What are you talking about? You admitted it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“Everyone knows marriage is hard work. So if you've chosen the shackles, quit whining and get on with it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“I'm a very truthful person, but if the greater good is best served by a lie then I'll tell it.”
Karina Bliss, Stand-In Wife

“We've had fifteen years of being grown-ups when we could have got together and we never have. Doesn't that tell you something?'
'Yeah, that timing is everything. Hit on me again now.”
