When Juliet Warren's drunken boyfriend drives his car into a light post weeks before his college graduation, she wants a fresh start someplace else to forget the memories and the past. She moves across country to a new city. There she befriends Andrea, a classmate she meets her first day of journalism school. They strike up an instant friendship and Juliet feels like her life is finally back on track.
Juliet isn't looking for love, but Andrea's brother is kind, handsome and sweet. Can she ignore the feelings between them, or will her heart finally give in? Worst of all, what happens when he finds out she's been keeping a secret that could tear everything apart?
About this Book
This time around I'm trying something different. I'm not sure how many of you know this, but I'm Canadian, and this time around, my main character is going to be from my hometown. When she moves right at the beginning of the story, she also moves to a major Canadian city on the West Coast, but part of the story does take place in Seattle.
I've been told over and over again that if I have a book take place in Canada that no one is going to read it. I hope I can prove the critics wrong especially because the location shouldn't really matter and isn't all that important to the story. Am I right? Please, someone tell me I'm right!
BUT if any of you know anything about Winnipeg (my hometown), we get a bum rap all across Canada about two things... I won't tell you what they are because that would be spoiling the joke. Suffice it to say, I love my hometown and always will, so I thought I'd give it a nod in this book.
If you're from the US, England, Philippines (Winnipeg has the largest per capita Filipino community in all of Canada at 5% of the population), India or anywhere else in the world, I hope the Canadian references and locale doesn't turn you off. Like I said, it's mostly secondary.
Now with the fun stuff out of the way, here is the usual crap I like to add.
Some things to get out of the way - warnings:
1. There will be some coarse language. If you don't like to see it, maybe cover your eyes?
2. There may be some sex. Well, there will probably be some sex, but whether or not it's graphic in nature, I'm not sure. If it's too graphic, I will make a separate work that will have the sexually graphic chapters only and I will make an author's note on the companion "tame" chapters with where you can find the more sexually explicit chapters (like I did with On the Rebound).
3. There is some subject matter that may make people uncomfortable. I guess all I can say is that it's part of life.
4. This will be a rough draft. If there are any grammar or spelling issues, I will not be correcting them. As some of you may know, one of my works was recently stolen, so I will no longer post polished drafts. If there is the odd error here or there, it may be too much work for a thief to correct. At least that's my hope.
Now to the usual stuff. I hold the copyright, so stealing my work is a terrible thing to do and can land you in serious trouble, so don't do it.
No translations. Please don't ask. It goes back to copyright, and if I plan to publish my book one day, I can't have translations out there that I have no control over. So while I'm flattered, I always have to decline.
I ask that you keep the language clean in the comments.
With all that said, I hope you enjoy my latest book. Feel free to leave comments and don't forget to vote!
