She’s found the perfect man. Will she get her perfect proposal?

Dog hotel marketing manager Alex has always dreamed of having a fairy-tale proposal: the glorious sunset, iconic backdrop and rose petals – the whole shebang. She’s found her Mr Right, and life with sexy paediatrician Miles is wonderful, except for one thing. Despite saying that he’s ready for marriage, Miles seems no closer to putting a ring on it.

After a romantic getaway to Paris ends in more disappointment and Alex receives news that sends her world into a spin, she decides that her dream proposal won’t just fall into her lap. So she hatches a plan.

Although she’s convinced her methods will lead to Miles popping the question faster than she can say ‘I do’, Alex’s friends warn her it will end in disaster. But a little bit of hint dropping can’t hurt, right?

Will Alex get her happily-ever-after, or is there a reason why Miles is dragging his feet?

Reunited with Her Blue-Eyed Billionaire is a – you guessed it – a second chance at love story.  Former college lovers, Whit Martin and Jamie Rutkowski, are reunited when their best friends become engaged.  It’s been several years since they’ve seen each other.  Neither are the person they were in college.  Jamie’s gone on to build a successful career as a ghostwriter.  And Whit… Well, let’s just say Whit’s been through hell and back since graduation.

In this scene, Whit has invited Jamie for lunch, ostensibly to catch up. There’s a second reason for the meeting, however. Whit’s hoping to hire Jamie to tell his story.  

Sitting in the sunshine, sharing a chocolate torte, Whit almost forgot the reason he’d invited Jamie to lunch.

Almost. His mission came as the waitress brought over a second pot of hot water. Washing down his final bite of torte, he eased into the subject. “By the way, I downloaded your art theft book and read some of it last night.”


“You sound surprised.”

“I am, a little,” she replied.

“You shouldn’t be. It’s not every day a friend writes a book. I really enjoyed it.”

The real reason, of course, was that he wanted to sample her work before they talked. Having read her papers back in school, he knew she could write. What surprised him was how the book sounded exactly like it had been written by a gruff, retired police detective.

“Do your books always sound like the people who hired you?” he asked.

“As much as possible, they do. Fortunately, a lot of what I write are business books. With those I can get away with letting my own voice creep in a bit more.”

“That must take some skill.”

“My agent thinks so,” she replied. He waited while she ate the piece of torte she’d sliced off. Her clients probably loved working with her, he imagined. She was easy to talk to and easy to look at. A sexist opinion, yes, but he refused to take back the compliment.

“How did you get involved in writing other people’s books?” he asked her. “I’m guessing you didn’t wake up one morning and say, ‘I’m going to be a ghostwriter.’”

She shook her head. “Honestly? I fell into it. I was working for a small company and one of our clients needed someone to edit a book she’d written. Long story short, the manuscript sucked, and I ended up rewriting the whole thing, saving the client a ton of embarrassment. A year later I signed on with a ghostwriting agency, learned I could make way more money and be my own boss, and voilà. A career is born.”

“And that book by the ballplayer you told me about. Was that something your agent arranged?”

“Yeah, it was...” She set down her fork and looked at him straight on. “Why do you sound like you’re giving me a job interview? Are you looking to write a book?”

“Actually...” Did he really want to do this? There was still time to change his mind. He could make up some lame excuse and forget all about telling his story.

And then what? He needed this monkey off his back once and for all, and if he could help someone else in the process, then so be it.

If he was going to expose his skeletons, however—he signaled the waitress—he needed black coffee rather than tea.

Jamie was waiting for him to continue. With a deep breath, he plowed forward. “Actually, I want you to write a story. A cautionary tale about a man’s descent into booze, drugs and destruction and the damage he left behind.”


The question faded off. Whit saw in her eyes the moment her brain answered her own question. She knew, but she was afraid to say so out loud. He said it for her. “Me, Jamie. I want you to tell my story.”

What happens next changes their lives. Oh, and Whit’s story? It’s a doozy. Jamie will need to convince him that he’s worthy of love – once she realizes she’s worthy herself.

Love and Ohana Drama by Melissa Baldwin - Blog Tour, Guest Post + Giveaway

I am delighted to be part of the Blog Tour for Love and Ohana Drama with an exclusive Guest Post from author Melissa Baldwin

Love and Ohana Drama is a romantic comedy that explores the challenges of family dynamics and reminds readers that there is always hope for a second chance. Sometimes the most challenging situations bring the most happiness . . .

Twenty-something Cora Fletcher is a book-loving public relations executive who lives with her overly Zen best friend and attention-loving cat. Newly single and focusing on her exciting career, she feels like she’s in a good place. She's even been invited on an all-expenses-paid Hawaiian vacation! The only catch—it’s a family reunion . . . and her family can be a lot to handle.

Cora vows to not let that get in the way, but even before the family has boarded the plane, the ohana drama begins. As usual, there's the sister-in-law who is bent on causing friction, the self-centered cousins, and the aunt who loves to party a bit too much. Her mother has filled the itinerary with endless activities, and she's even invited Cora’s ex-boyfriend in an attempt to get them back together.

Although she feels overwhelmed, Cora gets a blast from her past that could impact her life forever. This is one welcome reunion she did not expect . . .

Will Cora make it through a week of family togetherness? And will she be able to say aloha to someone she thought was out of her life forever?

Super-Everything! When will our best be good enough? 

I can do it all or at least I try too? What woman doesn’t want to be Super-everything? Super-employee, super-partner, super-wife, super-mom, super-friend…the list goes on. At what point will I realize that I am doing my best? I think we all ask ourselves this question at some point.

Long ago I gave up my dreams of creating the perfect hair-bows for my daughter or learning how to sew my own designer gowns. And after many failed attempts at making the yummiest gourmet recipes found on Pinterest, I accepted that frozen pizza is okay once in a while. Speaking of Pinterest, those boards are still full of crafting and organization ideas that I have yet to implement into my busy life. I do consider myself a master at multi-tasking, but even I have sat in the middle of my bedroom floor doing the ugly-cry. I remember many days that I asked myself what else am I supposed to be doing?

It was New Year’s Day 2014, I began that day at the gym, climbing the dreaded revolving stairs trying to lose the many pounds of holiday treats I’d consumed between Halloween and New Year’s Eve. I was even listening to Tony Robbins in search of the ultimate method to motivate me.  It was at some point during those forty minutes that I asked myself this question… “What do you love to do? Find that and do it.”  

That’s all I remember. At that point I was ready to chase after my dreams and for once actually catch them.

Six months later I finished writing the book I had started over and over again. And with the help and advice from a wonderful friend, I published it. 

What an amazing feeling! I still remember the day that I held the beautiful paperback in my hands. My eyes filled with tears as I flipped through the pages that I created. I actually did it, I followed through with something I had always thought about doing but never thought I could. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say… Oh I could never do that or I wish I could do this?” 

The worst part is that it never stops, no matter how much we grow, learn and accomplish our tasks. We will always want to be better. This is not a bad thing as long as we’re happy with where we are in the present. We can continue to strive to accomplish our goals and when we do, we can add another to that never-ending bucket list. 

With the arrival of 2021, our family sat down and created dream boards. I have to admit it sure is easier to see these “dreams” on paper than to just talk about them. We can all talk about wanting to travel the world or run a marathon but until you book your flight or register for that race, that’s all it is—just talk. 

As I look back on the early days when I began my quest to be super-everything I had no idea what to focus on. I just knew that I had to try, even if I failed. And I did fail over and over again. 

I’ve come to accept that I’m a work in progress as all of us are and that’s okay. I’m proud of the person I’m becoming and most of all I hope to inspire others with my story. If there is something you’ve always wanted to try, do it. The truth is you can be super at everything if you try.

Seizing the moment, she packs her bags and heads to Antibes to seek out the enigma known as Tante Josette. But as the two women begin to forge a tentative relationship, family secrets start to unravel, forcing Carla to question her life as she has always known it.

A heart-warming tale on the beautiful French Riviera, which will keep you guessing.

Sitting next to a warm fire, staring out at the snow falling in a chilly Northern England, I was instantly transported to the warmer climes of the south of France in this delightful story of Carla and her new life.

I felt that Carla coped admirably as one secret after another was slowly revealed to her.

This is a captivating novel of 'what might have been', long-ago family secrets, romance, bitterness, friendships, love and 'what can be in the future'.

I couldn't held being impressed at the ease in which narrator Julia Franklin effortlessly switched between all the French, English, Scottish and Italian accents!  This added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
