I’ve got so much on my plate that I almost decided not to do NaNo this year. But that just gives me yet another excuse not to write. So, I’m doing it. Who needs sleep, anyway?
Just kidding. Sort of.
I’ve got four projects currently bouncing around in my brain that I had to figure out which to work on (I loathe writing blurbs, so these are probably all really crappy):
That was Then, This is Now - Ten years ago, Jennifer Kelsey met the man of her dreams in the gas chamber during Navy boot camp. He was funny, smart, sexy as hell, patriotic – It was like she had no other choice but to fall head over heels for him.
Cole Jones seemed like the All-American good boy, but things are never all they appear to be. He joined the Navy as the ultimate act of rebellion against his Marine father and left the girl he was supposed to marry. Meeting Jennifer wasn’t supposed to happen, but sometimes fate steps in and throws a monkey wrench into all your carefully laid plans.
They shared a year of friendship that bloomed into an intense passion that neither would ever forget. But Cole’s past, and the Navy itself, drove them 1,000 miles apart, creating a rift that neither thought could ever be bridged.
When Jennifer got out of the Navy, she never expected to hear from Cole again. But one fateful night brings a message to her inbox. Hi, stranger.
Does time really heal all wounds?
Holding On & Letting Go - Hope Chambers met David Ramirez six years ago when she served him the cure for his hangover at the diner she worked at. After a whirlwind romance, she thought she’d found the one she was meant to be with forever – until the wrong person answers his hotel phone when he’s out of town on business.
Six years later, Hope is a single mother struggling to make ends meet as she gets her bookstore off the ground. She never expects to see the man who broke her heart again, much less find him standing at her door in the middle of the night.
Now that they’ve found each other again, they must overcome the obstacles which drove them apart to begin with, all the while navigating the murky waters of co-parenting when you’re no longer a couple. Will they be able to let go of their past hurts and move on with their lives? Or will they continue to hold onto the anger until there’s nothing left?
Just One Taste – Elliott Sanders is working his way through college at The Knife, the trendiest restaurant in town with dreams of one day becoming the Executive Chef in his very own kitchen. Unfortunately, the rules dictate that he stays out on the floor with the customers and far away from the appliances – and the hot chef who runs the show.
Jackson Lange runs his kitchen with an iron fist and he likes it that way. No one steps out of line, no one gets hurt. That all changes when Jackson steps in to save Elliott from an evening with the restaurant’s manager – he can’t help but break the rules just this once.
But just one taste is never enough, and Jackson finds himself coming back for more. So, why does Elliott keep pushing him away?
<Untitled Hot Doctor Story> – Carleigh Michaels is on the fast track to becoming the youngest radiology supervisor in her hospital’s history. She’s focused on her job, her patients, and her family. She doesn’t have time for a relationship, nor does she want one. So, when she meets the handsome Dr. Carlos Martinez in one of the elevators between patients, she thinks nothing of it… until he makes it a point to run into her again.
Soon, they’re meeting for coffee, taking breaks together, and “accidentally” bumping into each other in the on-call room. But Calleigh’s department policy states that dating doctors is a big no-no. Will she choose the career she’s always dreamed about, or risk it all for a chance with the hot doctor?
