Excerpt from new Contemporary Romance, ENTANGLED DREAMS:

This is just a teaser. If you missed the first few excerpts of Entangled Dreams, you can read the first three chapters here. Don't worry; there's a link, which will bring you right back.
If you've been keeping up with Entangled Dreams, you know that our female protagonist, Alexandra Nicole "Nicky", has lost both of her parents and is in a worthless relationship. But she's trying…if she could just stop making mistakes!

Alexandra felt tears well up in her eyes. She did love her father. Despite the years of neglect, she still loved him. Tiny gasps emanated from her throat, and she was hard-pressed to control them.
If Jonathan really cared, he would hold her, but she knew he didn’t. They had just been together forever and neither knew how to end it. She didn’t love him; actually, she didn’t know that she’d ever loved him. She just didn’t know how to handle life without him. They had been together for so long that she simply didn’t know how to escape. They were going nowhere, fast.
It felt as if time were threatening her to make a change. She was only twenty-two, but she felt thirty. And she knew if she didn’t make something with her life, she would wake up one morning and look into the mirror at the eyes of an old woman.  

Want more? Entangled Dreams will be out in a few weeks, but while you are waiting, read on for a little more information on what I write and descriptions with links to my two bestselling romantic-suspense novels.

What I write:

While I do not write "Christian" books, I do share my characters' Christian beliefs. My characters are real people who come with real flaws; no perfect people allowed.

I characterize my stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflowing 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.

Both of my published novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. My third novel, Entangled Dreams, releases this month.

I love talking about all things books, so please connect with me via one of the links below.

Books available:

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.
