A short teaser for you all

Here is a short, very short excerpt for you all.  Is Jeremy her Mr. Darcy?  Book coming soon.  #AN Accidental Love

Startled by a voice.

“Who doesn’t know poetry?”  Of course, it’s Jeremy giving me a quizzical look.

“Shit! Jeremy, you scared me.  I was just thinking of a guy and about poetry.  That’s all.   Do you recite poetry at all Jeremy?”  I’m curious so why not ask.

“Poetry’s for pansies.  Sorry Manz didn’t mean to kill your subject, but no, I don’t do poetry.”  He kisses my temple, wraps his arm around my waist and pulls me in for a great big hug.  God, he does give great hugs.  He is so much larger than I, the warmth he sends out, the protective hug.  Shake out of it, it’s just a hug.  However, I do enjoy his hug a bit longer.  I feel his mouth move close to my ear.

“Let’s go kick some parade ass!”  He says and the moment is gone.  Yep, it’s official he and I could never be.

Help! What cover would best fit?

I have been struggling for a long time with my cover to this book.  I would love input if anyone has the time.  Below I wrote a little about the book so you can have an idea about the cover.  It’s a romance, sweet love story, with a tragic beginning.

Amanda Wells has her life in order compared to most 26 year old’s.  A college Professor with a Master degree in historical romance.  She gets to inspire young talented minds of the two men she loves most.  William Shakespeare and Mr. Darcy.  Living in the heart of Minneapolis, exploring all the great adventures of historical love stories the city brings, when she has an opportunity to leave for a weekend filled with fun, laughter, and boys.  Could her Mr. Darcy be at this weekend bash?  While driving home brings her mind to shift to the weekend events, when last minute she doesn’t see what’s about to happen.  Does she survive her hit?

Dr. Ayden Graham, young, attractive, the most eligible bachelor in Minneapolis, is the Doctor on the afternoon that a young female is brought in with serious head trauma.  Like Amanda, Dr. Graham is hard working and very focused on his career, already Chief at a young age.  However, unlike Amanda he is not looking for his Cinderella.  Growing up with parents who fought and divorced he see’s no reason to hassle with love, it doesn’t exist.  His father with new bimbo every month and his mother well he stopped counting the husbands they are known as numbers to him.  But when this young female enters his ER, he is determined to save her, so much he can’t leave her side.

This book brings many levels of emotions.  From survival on how to fight and pull through the toughest obstacles life brings us.  Finding fate, with one glance into ones soul, bringing a voice of reason to your heart.  Feeling fear, the loss of love.  Pain that has never been felt nor imagined of knowing that you can’t live without that one person.  That person is your every reason to live.

An Accidental Love.  Below are the two covers I’m undecided.  What do you all think?IMG_4269 (1)IMG_4270 (1)

‘EXCERPT’ An Accidental Love

“Good Lord!  Are you guys planning on pissing people off or just taking them out?”  I can’t believe they are going to whip soaked balls at the people on the boat. These balls are not small, they are foam size soccer balls.  The trick is to dunk the ball under water so it’s soaked and when you hit someone with it, it really hurts, practically knocks you over!

“Hey, the other year some people were throwing frozen popsicles.  That shit hurts!  I took one right to the eye and it isn’t going to happen again.”  Jeremy means business, I don’t think I even want to be out here for the parade.

“Anna! Do they always act this crazy?  I’m even getting a little scared.”  I turn to Anna as she walks down the path.

“Girl, you have no idea.  Last year was way out of control, that one guy jumped off his boat to come after them.  But the guys’ wife threw him a life preserver and hit him in the head with it.  Pretty funny actually, but also scary, because the guy was already intoxicated and then being hit in the head, well…. let’s just say a buddy had to jump off and help him.  So, I’m guessing this guy and his friends are coming back and coming back with a vengeance this year.”  Her eyes wide filled with excitement.

“Sweet Jesus!  I will just be hiding from all this.  Sounds dangerous.” I’m a wimp, so I will opt out. Jeremy is walking up to us holding a ball and a gun.

“So, girls what do you want?”  He holds up his hands, “The balls or the gun?  I know they are both hard to handle but a lot of fun to play with.”  He laughs and winks at us.  Jeremy is a good time and very handsome but he is no Mr. Darcy.   Anna grabs the gun, so Jeremy hands me the balls.

“Amanda gets those wet so they splatter when they hit the target.”  He winks.  Anna nudges my side.

“I think he may like you, he only winks at you and if you watch he will find a way to see if you’re looking at him.”

“Jeremy and I have been friends for a long time, trust me he is not looking at me that way.  Besides, I don’t look  or think of him that way either.”

“Oh yeah, I forgot you’re looking for Romeo.  Romeo oh Romeo where are you.”  She starts shouting.

I turn over to the guys just in time to see Jeremy staring at me, our eyes meet and he winks once more.

As promised.

Sorry everyone, I have been very busy this summer running around with kids, and I joined this nano writing camp.  Let’s just say I’ve been getting more writing done then I normally would have if I wasn’t doing this camp, so it is a good thing. Yet, another reason I have been busy and don’t forget saving much needed time for the hubby.

In my last message/blog I did say I would leave you all with a taste of An Accidental Love.  Here you go.  #AN Accidental Love

Meet Dr. Ayden Graham

Being single at the age of 32 and already chief at a very respected hospital.  Graduated top of my class with highest honors at a very young age, hence the reason I am already at the top in my field.  I am an only child, grew up reading books and loved science.  My parents are divorced, my wonderful father in which I tend to avoid has a new lady every month.  A successful business man with money to blow on women.  Makes him happy but I want nothing to do with it being most of the women hit on me and only use my father for his money.  What bothers me most is my father knows these women use him, yet, he just shrugs his shoulders. My mother isn’t much better; however, I do love her dearly and only want her happy.  She is on her third marriage and this one is even a bigger douche than her last.  My mother and I are close, we have a good relationship.

My parents are quite lucky in the gene pool, in other words, handsome people at which I am told I got the best genes.

The city Gossip says, ‘I am the most gorgeous eligible bachelor in the city.’   Though I may not have the best relationship status, ok, let’s say I have none.  I haven’t had a girlfriend since high school.  We broke up because I was too focused on my career.  I never bring a date or even a lady friend to events, charity’s, or family functions- not that there’s to many of those.  But being tall, over six feet, beautiful green eyes, golden dirty blonde hair that swipes across my perfect forehead (of course I am reading to you what the column says).  Don’t get me started on my body…. “man, this guy takes care of his shit.” Quote, unquote the article.  ‘Well he is a Doctor, but I mean he is built to perfection.  Tall, lean, strong, and sexy as hell.’  Once again words of a journalist.

Let my day begin.  I am off to the hospital.

Eeek!  The End has come.  A fair well to my characters.  I guess just not quite yet, I am still editing and proof reading.  The loss I felt when completion started settling in.  I am one who falls in love with the characters we create, yes, I am also the one who cries when writing those words “The End” I know there are a lot of you out there just the same, I am not ashamed.

An Accidental Love, is finished.  Now it is just trying to figure out how to get it out into the real world.

I will post some blurbs here and there on this site for those that are interested in the story, but I am not going to spoil anything. Yes, evil is my middle name.

Look for #An Accidental Love coming soon.
