Excerpt from Lady Elinor’s Escape:

 

Note: In this excerpt, Stephen shows up at the dress shop on a rainy spring day with a basket of flowers.

 

He handed her the basket of flowers, then shrugged out of his coat and handed it and his hat to Peggy O’Shea. She gave him a flirtatious smile in return before hanging the wet items on a nearby rack.

 

Elinor stepped forward. “Flowers, Mr. Chaplin?”

 

He turned toward her. “Ah, Mrs. Brown. Yes, I thought these spring blossoms just the thing to brighten Madame Latour’s shop on such a dismal day.”

 

“How very kind you are,” said Ellie. “But an entire basketful?”

 

He smiled. “The young girl selling them was in despair over the lack of customers. She appeared to be almost drowned and nearly in tears, so I bought all she had, including the basket.”

 

“And paid far more than they were worth, I am certain,” Elinor murmured.

 

“Did you say something, Mrs. Brown?” he asked with a raised brow.

 

“Nothing of importance.”

 

He rummaged through the basket and produced a nosegay of bluebells, which he presented to Dolly. “These are for you, to match your eyes.”

 

Her blue eyes grew wide with wonder as she accepted the nosegay. “Oh, sir, no one ever give me flowers afore.”

 

“Well, I am certain this will not be the last time,” he said gallantly. Ignoring Dolly’s worshipful look, he returned to the basket for another nosegay, white violets this time, which he gave to Peggy.

 

She bobbed him a curtsy. “Oh, thank ye, yer lordship.”

 

He gave her a warm smile. “You are very welcome, Miss O’Shea. But I am not a lord, merely a mister.”

 

“No matter. ’Tis a fine gentleman ye are, to be thinking of us working girls.”

 

“Girls, why do you not go on home?” Mimi asked. “You have all worked so very hard today, and there will be no more customers, n’est-ce-pas?”

 

With glad smiles for Mimi, and more thanks and curtsies for Stephen Chaplin, the girls donned their cloaks and left the shop.

 

“I will get a vase for these lovely flowers,” Mimi said. “Please come into the parlor, Monsieur Chaplin, and warm yourself by the fire. I have made the coffee and there is water for tea.”

 

“Thank you,” Stephen Chaplin said. He delved into the basket one last time before handing it to Mimi. As she left the room, he handed Elinor a bunch of purple violets.

 

Elinor held them to her nose and breathed in the sweet, delicate fragrance. “‘A violet in the youth of primary nature, forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting,’” she quoted.

 

“‘The perfume and suppliance of a minute; no more,’” he added softly.

 

Startled, she gazed into his warm honey-brown eyes and her pulse began to race. She would have to guard her heart around this man? Why did he have to have such an effect on her? Was it simply because he was the only eligible gentleman she had ever known?

 

No, a gentleman who brought flowers to poor shop girls and quoted Shakespeare was surely out of the ordinary. What a catch he would be for some young lady. But of course, not for her.

A #NewRelease - Fling -- Box Set of 7 Authors #NewAdultFling


Fling BoxSet photo fling_box_set_mockup_v5_zps2ldnlg96.jpg So excited to tell you about the box set, I'm doing with 7 other authors. Fling is a collection of sweet romances. Romantic twists, turns, and comic mishaps abound! Will these couples find love-- and discover who they are really are-- before their stories end?


Entangled Summer by Michele Barrow-Belisle They say our dreams mask hidden secrets. Secret desires. Secret fears. Secret lives. 20 year old Nora Dultry’s dreams hide even more. They’re a gateway to the man of her dreams and an escape from her painful past. She’s fantasized about him for years, and when he magically walks into her summer teaching gig, she never dreamed she’d question whether he was the one she truly wanted. But her former fling Troy Belassaro doesn’t just own Wanderlust Academy... he’s her boss, he still has her heart strings tied in knots, and he’s hiding secrets of his own. One of them will be her dream come true, one her waking nightmare. Untangling the truth could make this summer job, her last.  


Love Me Like You Do by Bonnie Bliss writing as L. Kirk After being unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend on Valentine's’ Day Daisy Philips jumps to the defense of mysterious loner, Jason Lancaster. Jason hasn’t spoken to anyone since he came to the High School three years ago. But that day he speaks to Daisy.


Daisy is a dancer with her heart set on Juilliard, but a family secret threatens that path. Jason is a lost soul with a path that halted three years ago. Together they create a friendship that quickly turns to romance. But a tragedy in Daisy’s life pulls them apart.


Will Jason follow Daisy to claim the love that brought him back to life and mend both their broken hearts?  


Chase by Elena Dillon Rylan Maguire has run from a dangerous situation to start her life over but she didn’t count on finding Chase Sullivan or falling for him so quickly. When their pasts tangle squarely in the present will fear win out or will her newfound courage hold?  


My Best Friend’s Ex by Tina Gayle She loved him first, but her best friend married him. Now, with their divorced Brooke must choose between her best friend and the man of her dreams.


Brooke Janson has loved Garrett Sawyer since she met him on her first day of high school. Now, he’s free to love her too. Except, his ex-wife happens to be her best friend.


How can Brooke choose between a friend she’s known since kindergarten and the man her heart wants?  


The Good Girl by Tracy Reed Gabriella Townsend has been patiently waiting for her dream job. When she’s presented with the dream, it’s not exactly what she was expecting. She was hoping to work her way up the corporate ladder. Instead, one phone call and an office number on a slip of paper, lands her on the executive floor.


After a month working for the elusive, handsome and sexy, Phillippe Marchant, he offers her a life changing assignment…the position of “girlfriend.” Terrified of her feelings for him and the possibility of losing her job, she’s not sure what to do.  


Betrayal at Crater’s Edge by Kathleen Rowland Marchand LaFond is in control: his spy mission, his rules. After a suspicious betrayal by a friend, he knows this time, he needs help to dispose of deadly nerve agent. The person he trusts most is his former girlfriend, Yardley Van Dyke. She trusts him with her life but not her heart. Nothing is as simple or complicated as his perfect kiss.


Under the uncharted sulfurous clouds on Venus, they get closer to answers—and play to win as they get closer to each other. Will they find the poison before Vito Savage annihilates those who get in his way?  


Random Acts of Violet by Geralyn Corcillo Quietly independent Violet Parker is enjoying an uneventful summer of house-sitting, writing her thesis, and working to make ends meet. But suddenly a kid gets dumped on her doorstep, something keeps going bump in the attic, and most disturbing of all, Noah Swardguard shows up to lead a summer football program.


Noah has never succeeded in getting close to his reserved lab partner Violet. But when he sees her on campus in July—in charge of a little girl who makes her laugh and live a little—he wonders if maybe, just maybe, he has a chance with Violet Parker after all.

Peace, Love & Romance by #PLRAuthors - #99cents




Peace, Love & Romance


Ten Tantalizing Tales Celebrating Women who Have Loved, Lost and Triumphed!


 


 


Meet two of the authors:


 



Rebecca Warner – (Doubling Back To Love)


Upon moving to Miami after college, Rebecca Warner found herself competing for equal position and pay in the male-dominated banking world. She chose to project femininity and confidence, and to "hit'em with her smarts," which proved to be a successful strategy. Consequently, her stories are built on the tenets of sexy, feminine and smart women who pursue what they want in love and life, without fear or apology. She and her wonderful husband of 27 years now live in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina with their two rescue dogs.



nan photo nan_zpsowoyhupc.jpg 


Nan Reinhardt – (Sex and the Widow Miles)


Nan Reinhardt is a writer of romantic fiction for women in their prime, who for the last 20 years has earned her living as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. But writing is Nan’s first and most enduring passion. She can’t remember a time in her life when she
wasn’t writing—she wrote her first romance novel at the age of ten and is still writing, but now from the viewpoint of a wiser, slightly rumpled, menopausal woman who believes that love never ages, women only grow more interesting, and everybody needs a little sexy romance. 



 


About the books:


 



Doubling Back To Love – Rebecca Warner (Great Southeast Book Festival Top 10, Honorable Mention)


Lexi Avery asks, “Why does it have to come down to choosing just one man, when no one man can give me everything I want?” Why indeed? Follow her tantalizing adventures as she explores love’s options.



















 



Sex and the Widow Miles – Nan Reinhardt (Amazon Bestselling Author)


Julie is anticipating an idyllic retirement with her husband, Charlie, when he dies suddenly. She meets a younger man, Will, and embraces life—and sex—again. But a dark secret reveals her perfect marriage may have been a lie. Jules goes in search of the truth and finds there’s always a second chance for love.

Long Time Walk on Water by @JoanBSimon a #RockingSummerRomance













LONG TIME WALK ON WATER  by Joan Barbara Simon


 

 

Summary:

 

Emily Thompson, Rose to her friends, emigrates to the motherland, England, in search of a better life. It will be hard work for the young mother in this rich man’s country; above all she must also come to terms with this unknown phenomenon; di Hinglish dem. 

James Dunbar. Jack is what he answers to. Picking his way through the mucky incidents of life, he consoles himself that things will get better.  

They happen to meet at a bus-stop, Emily and Jack.  

A tale of how the humble live whilst waiting for their dreams to come true.  

* 

Behind closed doors with sausage and mash: Jack and The Better Life?           

            “Hello, love.”

A peck on the cheek, “Nice day?” She wipes her hands on her apron. Pushes her hair into place. She had been beautiful once.

            “Same as usual.”

Jack sits down at the kitchen table in the hot, small, cluttered place so hard to air on cold days such as these. The paint blistered on the wall around the cooker.

            “What’s for dinner, love?” He picks up a crayon. Colours, absent-mindedly, with daughter, Nina.

Jack’s wife stands over the sink peeling potatoes. “Police were round. Door-to-door questioning. Some old lady in Havelock was mugged coming back from the post office this morning, I dunno... Ben got a gold star for a story he wrote at school, didn’tya, darling? Go’n show daddy your gold star...” she dunks the peeled potato into the sink of cold water then plops it into the pot on the cooker. Leaning against the cupboard, she begins to clean the juice and mud of the potatoes from her fingernails, looking, every now and then, out of the window. Nothing ever happened out there, but you look out of the window just the same, like a fish in its bowl doing the rounds.

Jack looks at his wife. How many times had he told her it drove him up the wall the way she kept fiddling around with her fingernails like that.

            “What’s for dinner, love?” he asked once more.

            “Oh! Sausage n mash. Got a little baked beans left over from yesterday. You can ’ave those.   

‘There are no losers in Long Time Walk on Water. I see the vulnerability caused by need and I honour those who seek a way out. Harsh at times, Long Time Walk on Water is ultimately uplifting and life-affirming.’

(Joan Barbara Simon, interviewed by Lucy Walton for Female First)

Excerpt:


“In a creative world, anything is possible, even elephants.” My peace-keeping mother answered.
I rolled my eyes at my father in the rear view mirror. What was it about girls that made them so dense?
“I like the idea that we are entering a mystical world made of shifting vapors. Think about it, any object we can imagine might appear.” My father joined forces with my mother.
“Great, then monsters and dragons could live in this new land,” I said, knowing there wasn’t anything of the kind, but gosh, I could hope. “We might actually have a real adventure.”
“Yes, there is a battle to be won, but it will take more than muscles and weapons to defeat this enemy.” My mother smiled at me and then looked over at Sam. “Can you guess what it’ll take?”
A miracle, I thought, so we won’t be bored out of our skulls or if I had a hammer I could put Sam with her pig-tails and pink ribbons, out of my misery. That way at least, we wouldn’t fight.
I knew both ideas were unlikely so I didn’t comment.
Mom didn’t like it when I said anything to remind the family of the true reality of the situation. She called it falling out of “the spirit of the adventure.”
