When I was little, my mom was part of the Double Day book club. She had piles and piles of books lying around the house; most of them with Fabio-esque men and a scantily clad woman set in a different century. I made up stories in my head just from looking at the covers.

When I as 9, I wrote stories using my best friend as a muse. They were romances...but for the 9-year-old. She was the only one who read them.

When I was 14, another friend gave me a Marian Keyes novel. I fell in-love with her wit, and humor with a dark side. This was my first experience with realistic fiction.

When I was 19, Nicholas Sparks forever changed my views on relationships. I learned what true love could be beautiful and difficult at the same time. I wanted it.

Hi Anna!
Alexander Asher will get his HEA in Reckless Abandon.
Here is the synopsis....


A heart-wrenching breakup, an accident… a loss.

Every time Emma Paige stretches out her right hand she is reminded of all the dreams that faded in one awful weekend.

But when Emma and her sister, Leah, embark on a trip to Capri, Italy, a near drowning leads them deserted in a foreign country. When a stranger offers to help, the sisters follow him to his luxury yacht where Emma faces her greatest challenge yet.

His name is Asher.

Over the course of three days, Emma and Asher enter into an intense, complex and emotion extracting relationship. But when Emma learns of Asher’s real identity she finds herself betrayed and stranded by the only man she was ever able to open her heart to.

A chance meeting in New York, a romance communicated through music and a choice greater than any love she’s ever known, Emma learns of Asher's demons and is left to wonder...

Is he here to save her or is he the one who needs saving?

It’s been a long time since I picked up a military romance so when I saw the cover for Five Years Gone I was excited to dive right in!
This is not your mother’s military romance. It’s a love triangle with a twist! There’s angst, suspense, humor and a soul-touching love story in Five Years Gone. I loved it so much I had to ask New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author Marie Force for...

“Life is a series of commas, not periods.”
Jeannine Colette, Wrecked

“No more fighting me, Leah. No more denying what this is.” I look up at him, into the dark abysses of glass. “What is this? I’m having a hard time figuring it out.” “It’s two people who have been bound to each other for years, yet keep pushing each other away. It’s the fine line between heaven and hell and a relationship that could destroy us both. It’s a guy who stupidly went out with a girl’s friend as a way to push her out of his mind, but it only made things worse. It’s a guy who fell for his best friend’s girl when he was a teenager and stayed away from her as a punishment. To her. To himself. To the world. I’m done with staying away from you.” Adam puts a hand to my head and holds me tight. Leaning in, he continues, “It’s a guy who has wanted a girl since he was eighteen years old. You’re all I’ve ever wanted. You wrecked me a long time ago, and I will never be repaired. Hell, I don’t ever want to be repaired. I love you, Leah.”
Jeannine Colette, Wrecked

“If he’s been wrecked by me, then I’ve been shattered, damaged, destroyed by him. And, by God, if being in a million pieces means I can belong to him, then I don’t ever want to be whole.”
Jeannine Colette, Wrecked

“There is a whole community out there who loves love, who loves romance, and I’m one of them. It’s a world I love living in, where there are happily ever afters, the odd girl gets the good looking guy, and where chivalry isn’t lost. I know it can’t all be true, that life isn’t as grand as some novels make it out to be, but I still love every single story because it’s an escape from reality, a moment in time where you can daydream of the impossible, where there is a chance of watching true love unfold right in front of you.”
Meghan Quinn, The Virgin Romance Novelist

“You were always there... until you weren't anymore. Losing you taught me not to count on anyone but myself. It shaped who am I today... and that's not necessarily a good thing.”
Penelope Ward, RoomHate
