If you missed the first few excerpts of Entangled Dreams, click here. Don't worry; there's a link, which will bring you right back.
Last week Nicky explained her estranged relationship with her father, mostly over her boyfriend, and the fact that even though she just heard about her father’s death, she still had to go to work or she wouldn’t be able to pay the rent.
This week’s excerpt:
Jonathan wasn’t home when she stepped inside their small apartment, so he wouldn’t be able to drop her off at work. That was good. It would mean he wouldn’t be able to forget to pick her up afterward either.
After attempting to wash away her problems in a steaming-hot shower, she pulled on her short-shorts and skin-tight top, tying it into a knot behind her back, and then brushed her hair up into a ponytail. After dabbing on thick, black mascara, she was out the door in minutes.
As soon as she stepped off the flight of stairs to their apartment, Jonathan jumped out of an old, beat-up Camaro. “Hey, babe! Good, I just caught you. Joey from work just dropped me off, but I was hoping I could take you to work, so I could use the car.”
Joey from work, she thought internally. She wondered what kind of work her boyfriend was doing this week. Not wanting to fight about the car, she sighed.
Entangled Dreams will be out in a couple of months, but if you’d like to read the first three chapters, they are at the end of my current romantic-suspense, LAND OF THE NOONDAY SUN.
I write modern-day fairytales filled with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
I love talking about all things books, so please connect with me via one of the links below.
When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as Land of the Noonday Sun.
After secrets and a mysterious background leave a wife’s life hanging by a thread, a husband must look for answers in the only place he knows—the past.

Yeah, and if he's 'working', why isn't she able to take the day off and morn the loss of her father instead of worrying about paying rent????ReplyDelete
That's a very good question, MJ. And as I said last week, we kind of have to forgive Nicky; she's only twenty-two and thinks people will change, remember? LOL!Delete
Joey, huh? I wonder.ReplyDelete
