I’m happy to say my Christmas/New Year’s contemporary romance is available now.
Published by The Wild Rose Press for all ebook formats.
The Strong, Silent Type. His scars left him dead inside…until she moved next door. Will she run from him when she learns why his first marriage fell apart?
Tina Hudson’s busy sales job is a welcome distraction from memories of the husband she lost to cancer, but she’s tired of running from her loneliness. Tina suspects her brawny neighbor has been leaving single red roses in her mailbox, but he’s the strong, silent type…the kind that should come with a warning label.
Wade Scott felt dead inside over the loss of his son and the disintegration of his marriage. When Tina moves next door, Wade comes alive again. Problem is, she’s a beautiful sales whiz and he’s an ordinary plumber with a wicked scar along his temple. The truth of his past might drive her away. With little hope of attracting her attention, he showers her with anonymous acts of kindness.
When Tina realizes Wade is the guardian angel who’s been watching over her for the past six months, she invites him to dinner. New Year’s Eve is approaching, a perfect time to start over, but Wade’s stoic silence drives a wedge in their burgeoning relationship. Should she take a new job that will put her on the run again, or take a chance the strong, silent type might fill her heart-and her home-with love?
My husband and I are quarreling about my numerous runs to the apple orchard.
Our house is bursting with apples. The fridge is crammed with Fiji apples.
Gala apples roll off the kitchen counter, landing on stocking feet.
I had to do something fast, before my family staged a mutiny.
Solution: apple cake.
The recipe is at least 50 years old, from my husband’s grandmother.
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup oil
1/2 cup orange juice
2 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
6 medium apples, cubed or sliced
sprinkle of cinnamon sugar all over the top
Combine all ingredients.
Pour into greased pan and bake at 350 for about 75 minutes.
The cake has a sweet, apple-orange flavor that goes well with coffee or vanilla ice cream.
PLUS, the cake soothes any hurt feelings after an apple falls on a stocking foot.
I snuck into my kids’ high school.
I put my hair in a ponytail and carried lots of books…
but they kicked me out of home room before I made it to Biology class.
The next day, I tried to pass myself off as a teacher.
I wore a skirt, blouse and glasses, but the real teacher kicked me out of Biology class.
Then I tried to dress like the principal,
but I couldn’t pass myself off as a bald, sixty year-old man.
Which is probably a complement, now that I think about it.
Anyhow, I’ve been watching my kids become more independent.
It occurred to me they will probably leave in a few years.
My efforts to spend time with them at school failed.
So, I’m getting ready to apply to college.
