Sneak peek at what I'm working on...coming soon!

A car accident left Felicity Telford without use of her most important asset-her dominate hand. Without it, she will never create art again. After months of agonizing rehab and rejecting her new prosthesis-a robotic hand-Felicity leaves her beloved life in New York as an artist to return home to Santa Cruz, a place she had left behind forever. When she arrives on the doorstep of her family's home, she finds nothing is the same, not even the person answering the door. A man named Hayden Black lives there now. 

If there's one thing Hayden can do well is despise people practicing too much self-pity. He's built his business, a snow cone company, from the ground up. Going out of his way to help Felicity, he offers her a job, but Felicity isn't grateful, and despite her beauty and tragic loss of her hand, she pushes Hayden to the limits of his patience. All Felicity wants is get her old life back. All Hayden wants is to show her that it will never be the same again. Neither of them want to accept that the best part of their future could be each other.
