Giveaways

WINNERS ARE: Cilla--Keep Calm Keep Writing Notebook, Louise--cup, Beverly--Calendar, Sheryl--Small box of Earl Gray tea.

Thank you, everyone, for participating. I will continue to have giveaways throughout the year.

****************************************
Hello there,

I want to start the year off on the right note by celebrating those who have supported me and continue to share in my joy of writing books with their joy in reading them.

From my recent trip to England, I picked up a few items for the giveaways. Each of the three items will contain a signed book, One Of A Kind which is the first in the Meadows Family series. The second book, One To Love, is available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.



Overview

Is she the only woman for him?
Nothing is going to keep Belinda Toussaint from her goal of starting a horse-riding camp for kids who need a fresh start, which means teaming up with the man who's been hired to help turn her vision into reality. But soccer legend Jesse Santiago is as arrogant as he is irresistible. Giving in to the passion igniting between them could head Belinda straight for heartbreak.
After a devastating injury ended his pro sports career, Jesse's ready for a major change. The job as head contractor on this innovative project could be the new beginning he craves. It took courage for Belinda to break away from her family's media empire and follow her own ambitions. Now Jesse intends to be true to himself, as well. But when his past threatens to sabotage his future with Belinda, will he be able to convince her that they share the same dream of being together forever?

So much has happened in 2014 that it is a bit bittersweet to see it close. So much in my writing world has been accomplished. Some of those celebratory moments weren't planned, but were opportunities that I stepped up and grabbed, while, for other milestones, they were part of my goal plans.
