Jeremy is a sweet learning-disabled, but high functioning, man who shows Miranda the lighter side of life and brings her out of her funk after losing her beloved husband. He also awakens her long dormant sexuality. Although she tries to keep their relationship secretive, the gossip abounds. A life together could be easy, full of fun, and uncomplicated. Enter her former friend Nick Kramer, a sophisticated New Yorker, and the plot thickens! Each man appeals to her on different levels, and it is not until the very end that you discover Miranda’s choice. Book 2 will be published in late 2019.

It had to be a joke.

Any minute now, a van would drive up and Ashton Kutcher would slide the door open, laughing hysterically at my melodramatic performance on the front porch.

But nothing happened.

The words on the page jumbled into a toxic mess my brain refused to comprehend, much less accept.

Please consider this letter as a formal request to arrange a paternity test (DNA).

I barely remembered Chelsea Airy.

That wasn’t true—we’d gone out once, and we’d been friends for a while after. But I hadn’t heard so much as a peep from her since I’d gotten married. I’d reached out a handful of times, but she’d quit responding and fell off the face of the earth. There hadn’t been a text, an email, a phone call, not even a Facebook message, much less a stork in the last five years.

My wife could forgive a lot, but she’d never wanted children—much less another woman’s.

True love stories don’t have endings.

Olivia has no intention of starting an affair. She wants a beach, some sun, and to be left alone. It’s been more than a year since her husband died and she’s spent most of that time helping everyone else heal. This vacation is for her, but taking a beer to a stranger at the insistence of the staff, and making a five-minute friend? That won’t cut into her time too much, right?

How do you adjust to palace life when you’ve been a soldier for ten years? For Dante, it’s flying halfway around the world to a beach where no one knows who you are. He’s been called home to fulfill his duty to family and country, filling the princely role he left ten years before when he joined the military. His father gives him mere weeks to figure out how to adjust to royal life again.

Neither is looking for anything more than a friend in a remote land, but after spending a week together, will they really be able to walk away and find their happy ever after with someone else?

Romance meets duty in this modern day love story. Can Dante convince Olivia to take a chance on a future with him, or will Olivia’s past hold her back?
