Book Release - Protest of Love (Book 5) of the Monday Mystery Society

Book Blurb

Mary Gardner is a successful career-oriented woman with a passion for work and books. She is part of The Monday Mystery Society at Acorns, the local bookstore in Oakville. Her life is perfect, in her opinion, till she meets Stefan. Things start going downhill as he infiltrates her work, her life and her heart. 

Stefan Larsson, a dashing European attorney fighting for the rights of the weak and downtrodden. He threatens everything Mary has worked so hard to achieve. He is smart but aggressive; passionate but dominating. He’s out to get Mary but the question is: will he remain unscathed? 

Book Excerpt 
“Found what you’re looking for?”
Mary looked up with a start. Stefan stood there; cross-legged, casually leaning against the wall.
“So the real estate industry and the pharmaceutical industry. Is there anyone you like?” she asked bitterly.
He slowly walked toward her, his eyes locked on hers.
“I like you,” he said as he came around and took the paper from her hand.
“If this is what you do to people you like, I feel sorry for those you don’t.” The office space suddenly seemed smaller to her. Nobody knew she was there. She didn’t think Stefan would hurt her, but she had been snooping around. He had every right to be angry. She wondered what he planned to do.
“I’m impressed. You don’t seem like the breaking and entering type.” Mary was not short, but Stefan towered over her. Her pulse started to race. She took a step back but stumbled on the chair. Stefan grabbed her by the waist to prevent her from losing her balance.
“You seem kind of distracted Mary,” Stefan said.
Mary could feel his eyes caressing her face and flushed.  She realized his arms were still around her and freed herself from his grasp.
“Keep your hands off me, Mr. Larsson,” she said.
“You know, all this sir and Mr. Larsson…it’s really not doing it for me.” Stefan flashed his gorgeous smile.

“Maybe because I have no desire to do it for you Mr. Larsson.” Mary glared at him and walked out of his office.

One of Those Days - A Sweet Romance

Things are not always as bad as they seem. Elizabeth Jennings and Neil Baldwin. Two different personalities. An accidental meeting. One strange day. A string of events that bring in a ray of hope and love. Both don’t know what hit them. The result: a beautiful and unexpected Valentine miracle. Now available on Amazon

Book Blurb

Elizabeth Jennings has hit a low point in her life. Unstable job, poor financial situation and complex personal issues that make her just want to curl up and sit at home. Then she crashes into Neil Baldwin. Literally. And nothing is the same after that. In a span of one day, Elizabeth finds her very own Valentine miracle. It’s sweet, it’s unexpected and it comes in a neatly wrapped package in the form of Neil Baldwin. Just one of those days we all dream of.

Excerpt from One of Those Days 

Elizabeth felt flustered with him so close to her. She thought her heart would pop out completely when Neil pulled her even closer and softly brushed his lips against hers. Then his lips moved on to her cheek and down to her neck. “You feel nothing?” he asked, so softly he was barely audible. Elizabeth’s breathing quickened. “Neil, we just met. I don’t think―” Elizabeth started but before she could continue, his lips were on hers, making it difficult for her to think of anything else but how good it felt and how much she wanted the moment to last forever. It was no ordinary kiss. Neil claimed her mouth as if she belonged to him and his lips evoked a response from her that she couldn't control. Both of them were unaware of their surroundings as they kissed there on the sidewalk. Rain fell on their faces, people walked past them and cars rushed on, but nothing mattered except for this closeness to him. Elizabeth’s spun when Neil finally let her go. “This is moving way too fast for me,” she blurted out as she tried to control her racing pulse.
