"He would change eventually..." Excerpt from WIP, ENTANGLED DREAMS

If you've been following the excerpts for my new novel due this summer, we have a new title...

Last week, Nicky had just received the terrible news that her father had died. So that's the end of our monsoon, for a little while anyway.

Lets get on with the story...


She wished she could have broken through his tough exterior and shown him that she still loved him despite the years of neglect.

But every time they tried to converse, they fought. He hated her boyfriend, wanted her to move back home, wanted her to do more with her life. As if he was someone to talk. Yeah, her boyfriend was pathetic, but he had been there for her for the last six years. He would change eventually, he would improve and then everything would be better in her life.
Her stomach plunged. She didn’t want to go to work. She didn’t know how she could possibly endure the evening, but she needed the money. Saturday night was a moneymaker; she couldn’t afford to pass on the couple hundred dollars she could make on a weekend night. Besides, if she didn’t make enough tonight, she wouldn’t be able to pay rent.

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.

About me:

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.

  1. Nice six. She's at a vulnerable time and I think we've all had some of those thoughts. Well done.

    1. Thank you, Lea. Yeah, I think most women--and men--cam realate with trying to change someone. Thanks for commenting.

  2. Really a good six, you capture your character's thoughts SO well. I'm dismayed to "hear" her thinking about hanging in there with this guy though, thinking she'll change him. See, you got me totally involved with your heroine!

    1. Thanks, Veronica. I was hoping I hit the mark with that comment. Many of us have been there and can relate, I'm sure. I have some surprizes in store in the next few weeks, and then, hopefully release will be in August. You know how that goes. :)

  3. Fantastic Six!! Very well done :)

  4. "Stop laughing; she's only twenty-two..." LOL

    That poor girl. Wonderful six!

    1. Yeah...my novels start so tragic, but I do have a sense of humor, and I know how all of us women at one time or another have thought we could change someone. Well, who knows, maybe she will. That *would* be a fairytale. :))
