Back in the day, Annie thought she was Cinderella. She wasn’t. Her handsome prince broke her glass slipper. Oh, all right. He lost her phone number. Never called. Broke her heart. Life goes on. When they meet up again a decade later, turns out her new employer is her old flame-out. Annie’s wiser now, and the man signing her paycheck isn’t the charming prince he once was, either. Now John is a single father who was broadsided by a drunk driver, leaving him embittered by the destruction of relationships caused by his no longer handsome face. Still, the magic between these two is flickering into life again, yet neither is willing to trust it. Can his lonely little daughter bring them together, or will suspicion crush their second chance for a happy ever after?
if you are looking for steamy sex, this isn’t the story for you. There’s some, but the bedroom door isn’t wide open. If you’re looking for an emotional read with old-fashion aww moments, however, go ahead, take a chance. This is the first book in the new The Flowers of Ashbury Street series, all with old-fashioned elements but with modern twists and turns. Launch price is $.99 or read free with Kindle Unlimited.

I’m a great believer in happy endings.
Sure, I know that true endings only come about when you draw your last breath. However, a writer can place the ending of her story anywhere she chooses, and I choose to place my story endings at the place where the characters are at their happiest. Sure, a lot can happen in their next hour, their next day, year, second, but that doesn’t take away from the bliss of the perfect NOW.
I’m the mother of three so I know all about those fraught tomorrows — the losses, the sorrows, the frustrations and angers, the less than perfect spouse. They are all a part of life, but so are the happy times, the times to be celebrated. There’s no more wonderful feeling in the world than the bliss of being in love, unless it’s seeing the face of your newborn child for the first time.
So happy reading, everyone. May your NOW be full of joy, and treasured, even should it disappear tomorrow.
