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?

The story was good at the end. I loved Zach. I am glad his dad told him to wait for her and not go running after her. She needed to grow up and face her fears of being alone. She had been alone for the last ten years so make up you" Read more of this review »

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

“And while the years pass quickly, it’s the seconds I live for. Because, in the seconds, the most beautiful things can happen.”
Jeannine Colette, Just Ten Seconds

“Some people say not to plant in the fall because the frost is on its way. What they don’t realize is the time when everything is dying is the best time to start new life.” She takes some dirt and covers the bulb. “There’re two different kinds of plants. Perennials and annuals. Some, you plant and enjoy for a season, and they die, so you get new ones. They’re superficial. But the annuals, those are the ones with roots. They grow beautiful, and in the fall, they droop. They get ugly, and they die. But in the spring, they come back even more beautiful. They’re like memories. It’s like the people in our lives. Some are fleeting, here for a moment. Others grow roots. Those are what I plant. In the dark of winter, they lie dormant until it is time for them to flourish.”
Jeannine Colette, Just Ten Seconds

“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
