He had a right to remain suffocated by his pain. She had a right to remain silent about hers. For better or for worse. Those were the vows that I had taken with my wife six years ago. We had lived through the better and were barely getting through the worse. I tried to face our loss together, while she chose to have an affair instead. Time apart was what we both needed. What I didn’t expect in that time was her. The beauty she possessed on the outside was a far cry from the scars she was harboring on the inside. She wasn’t looking for love and neither was I. She just needed someone to help her deal with the pain she had been carrying around for the past two years, and I was happy to oblige. I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her, but suddenly I was seeing a future that I never dreamed of right in front of my eyes….only to find that the past had other things in mind for us. *** I always believed that we only got one true love in life, and mine was gone and never coming back. Through the tear-filled nights and never ending days, I was slowly and tortuously coming to terms with the pain that was my reality. And then he entered my life. Tall, handsome, genuine and caring, he was a friend when I needed one most. Together, we were a temporary fix to our own permanent pain. Just two people helping each other to get through a very dark period in life. But when the light begins to shine ever so slightly with each passing day, and his face is all I can see at the end of that tunnel…..do I run back into the darkness or move into the light with him?

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of relaxation.

I have resided, in the heat of Las Vegas, NV for the past thirty years. Forty-three years young, married for twenty years, to my Split-Apart. We have a seventeen-year-old, who thinks he is twenty-six, and an eleven-year-old, who has the mind of a sixteen-year-old. I am currently a member of the Las Vegas Writer's Group and have been seriously writing for the past four years. 
I love the color red and use it in everything, hence the bottle-blonde with red highlights. If my fingers are not busy writing mayhem, you will find me looking up a new cookie recipe. When I need to recharge, you'll find me curled up with a mug of vanilla coffee and another book from my author bucket list.
My goals are simple; my passion is to be a 'Storyweaver' not a teller. I want to weave you (the reader) into my stories, not just to escape but have a sense of belonging. So Shall I Reap, book one of the Unseen Series is just the beginning of Tevin and Alexcia's journey. I hope you will enjoy as each of them share their POV with you.

 In "Heart of the Rose" we are taken back to the beginning of Mara and Edwards love story ... this is not a flowery poetic romance novel ... just like the first it's a darker tale, heartbreaking.
Edward protects Mara by taking the Queen's mission that will surely have him fail or die ... When he goes missing Mara waits ... and waits ... and waits ... other's fear he is dead but Mara knows he lives and is being tortured.
At first she just waits for him to return but she has dreams of him that are so vivid and real ... in wakeful hours and in sleep she dreams/sees him ... Her hopefulness turns to sadness and grief and it changes here deep in her soul.
Eventually the Queen and the guards force her to accept Edwards death but she can't completely believe it.
He in imprisoned but refuses to say who he is, who he protects, where he is from ... he too, dreams of Mara ... vivid realistic visions that torment him
Since they are of the immortal courts, Mara and Edwards separation is long ...
My heart ached for Mara ... for Edward ... for Arron ... for Sarah (I do hope for more about her)
I was angry for her and wanted to see her escape and search for him ... but that would be boring and while it was hard to read her pain and heartache ... I was drawn to read more and hope for her
There are a few parts of the story that bothered me but I'll trust that the author did what had to be done ...
and Queen Clarrisa scares me ... but I do love to hate her!
Like the first book (which I loved!) this is not a beautiful love story ... it's dark and brutal and heartbreaking at times ... but it IS a love story!
