No one understands why I love him.
Why I need him.
Why I took him back.
But they don?t have to.
Despite the hurt and the heartache, I see beneath his skin.
And I?m different now.
No more Flirty Frankie. I’m done with being King of the club.
My dreams have changed, and so have I.
I believe in myself.
And I?m a hell of a lot smarter than a year ago.
Now it’s his turn to show me the man he really is.
To prove it.
I’ve always loved him.
But that’s not enough.
I need to learn to trust him.
No more excuses.
No more chances.
I make this right or lose him for good.
I have to do this.
No one has ever believed in me but him.
No one has ever wanted me but him.
I can?t let him down.
I can?t let myself down.
I?m trying, but it’s so damn hard.
No matter what they throw at me, I?m stronger.
And I?m going to make it.
I?m on my way.
With Frankie by my side.
I can see the future.
I have a future.
I spent years waiting for someone who never put me first.
He took my love, took me for granted.
Took my heart.
Now I?m on my own.
Living life my way.
The crowd only sees my smile.
Never my loneliness and pain.
I need someone to need me.
When I meet another lost soul my friends try to warn me.
He?s a liar.
He?s all that and more.
He?s everything I?ve ever wanted.
I?m king of my world.
Then it all comes crashing down.
My secrets are exposed.
I?m cut off from my family.
Unrecognizable from the man I used to be.
Barely surviving, living day-to-day and out of control.
Nothing to hold on to.
I let go and fall so far there?s no way up.
Until a cowboy reaches into my darkness and brings me back to the light.
With him I can breathe.
I can be who I am.
Who he needs.
He gives me hope
To find myself.
To find love.
It’s time to travel with James and Malcolm through their twenty year history as they battle each other and struggle to hold on to a lifetime of secrets.
Never good enough.
Not the real son.
I will prove him wrong?prove everyone wrong.
I am someone.
I will succeed.
I don?t need my brother to help me.
I don’t need anyone.
My enemy holds my secret.
He teases me.
Follows me with his eyes.
Our hot, angry kisses keep me up at night.
I don?t want him.
I hate him.
But I can?t stop thinking about him.
That there’s more to him
I want to discover him.
The truth is unexpected.
My enemy might not only be my friend but the love I never thought to have.
Live, love, laugh.
Life is too short to worry when you don?t know how long you?ve got.
I want every day to be my best.
Like it?s my last.
My friends see what I let them.
Not the real me.
Only one man has ever crawled beneath my skin.
He drives me crazy.
Makes me wild.
Makes me care.
A night of bad decisions changes the course of my life.
Everything I’ve known no longer makes sense.
My enemy now stands by my side.
I?m no longer running.
I want to stay.
I want a future.
Hate has changed to something new and wonderful.
I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.
I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
